If any of you out there reading this own a 360 but don’t have a Kinect yet, go do so before June 14th. Why? Because Child of Eden is going to be ridiculously badass.
As a huge fan of trance and techno, the little raver inside of me squealed with delight when I first heard about Child of Eden. I love trippy, psychedelic games, like Frequency and Amplitude for PS2, so it was only natural I’d lust after CoE.
Today Ubisoft has released a new trailer for the game titled “Mood,” and while there really is no explicit reason as to why it’s given that name it really doesn’t matter because the trailer is insanely awesome. If you’re unfamiliar with CoE all you need to know is this: it’s being designed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the same guy who gave us Rez, Space Channel 5 and the Lumines games. But, if that’s not enough for you, here is the description in todays press release:
Child of Eden thrusts the player into the center of a battle to save Project Lumi, a mission to reproduce a human personality inside Eden, a futuristic version of the Internet and the archive of all human memories. As the project nears completion, the archive is invaded by an unknown virus and the player’s mission is to save Eden from the virus to restore hope and peace. Under the direction of the renowned game creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, Child of Eden is a multi-sensory shooter that will send players diving into a kaleidoscopic matrix of synchronized music and mind-blowing visuals that will usher forth a truly landmark game experience.
So what does that all mean? Well, first off the game promises to have some kick-ass tunes, but throw in innovative gameplay accompanied by some mind-blowing graphics and gamers are sure to have a truly enjoyable experience. In addition to the Kinect version, the game is also slated to come out for the PlayStation 3 with Move support, but that won’t be until sometime in September. Finally, to make this game even sweeter, it’s currently expected to cost only $49.99 so reserve your copy now!
