Dementium 2 has been announced for DS by publisher SouthPeak Games and developer Renegade Kid. The game is the direct sequel to Dementium: The Ward and will be released in first quarter of 2010.
According to Renegade Kid, Dementium 2 will continue the storyline from the original while delivering better visuals, more haunting audio, and sharper scares than its predecessor.
Although I regarded the first game as one of my worst scored games of all time, as you can read in my Demenitum: The Ward review, I could definitely picture the sequel being good if they addressed all the issues that that game had.
And like the first game, the Dementium 2 trailer is truly terrifying and highly original. Give it a look.
“We were extremely satisfied with what we accomplished with the original Dementium, but knew we could do even more given the chance to develop a sequel,” said Jools Watsham, Owner and Creative Director of Renegade Kid. “With Dementium II, we’re upping the ante in a major way. Be prepared to be too frightened to power on your Nintendo DS.”
“Regardless of what some say about ‘M’ rated games on Nintendo DS, the original Dementium proved there is an audience hungry for a top notch handheld horror title; we aim to feed this bloodthirsty crowd with Dementium II,” said Richard Iggo, VP of Marketing at SouthPeak. “Our aim isn’t for this title to be the best horror game on Nintendo DS; we want Dementium II to be regarded as one of the best horror titles in video games, on any platform.”
