Capcom Unveils ‘Remember Me’

Published 2 years ago by , Updated August 15th, 2012 at 7:34 am,

Capcom is well-known for publishing large, recurring titles like Resident Evil, Devil May Cry and Street Fighter. Today, however, the company has revealed that its latest project is an all-new intellectual property named Remember Me. Gamers will discover the meaning behind the title after watching the game’s debut trailer (above).

Remember Me is being produced by DONTNOD Entertainment, a Paris-based development studio. If you’ve never heard the name before, it’s because this is the company’s first project. Originally titled Adrift and in development for four years (artwork from the game actually appeared at Gamescom last year), Remember Me is set to bring players into a cyberpunk, futuristic world where memories can be touched — which evidently leads to sabotage and spy warfare.

Remember Me Announcement

Players will be taking on the role of an elite memory hunter named Nilin. As a memory hunter (called an “Errorist”), she has the capability to enter the minds of others and alter their memories — or delete them entirely. As the trailer shows, eventually the tides turn against her and Nilin herself has her memories stolen, starting her on a quest to find out who went behind her back.

Set in 2048 and based in Paris, the title will undoubtedly feature themes centered on both technology and the cyber-punk movement. If the trailer is anything to judge by, some Dues Ex-style augmentation may be in store for Nilin, who also seems to be capable some Batman-esque fighting moves.

In terms of actually altering memories, players will go through and make subtle changes inside the minds of NPCs, making them believe different events have unfolded. For instance, taking the safety off a weapon makes all the difference in the world for one character in the video below.

As shown in the videos above, Remember Me is a third-person action adventure game, and looks like the kind of title which would be ill-suited to multiplayer action. DONTNOD Entertainment hasn’t discussed whether or not a multiplayer mode is under consideration — then again, with Remember Me officially announced just today, they haven’t really said much of anything yet. We’ll keep you posted as Capcom reveals more information about the game.

Ranters, what are your thoughts on Remember Me? Is this a dystopian title to remember?

Remember Me is slated for a March 2013 release on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

  1. This game looks awesome! I love the design and the gameplay. But come on– March 2013? Like gamers’ wallets won’t already be hurting. Somebody release a game in summer FFS!

    • I think a lot of these games are being pushed out early 2013 because the next gen consoles are right around the corner. I mean there’s TONS of awesome games startin at the beginning of next year.
      Anyway, I’m interested in this as well but would like to see more before I add it on my list.

      • Still. They could release some games during summer and fall.

  2. Mmmmm. I think I’m liking the ideas behind this one. I’m always a sucker for a good cyberpunk game, and it’s coming out for the PC as well. Always a plus.

  3. Does anybody remember P.N.03? I get a feel from that when watching the videos.

  4. Not sure what to think about this. I’m interested, just need to see more.

  7. I’m catching strong undertones of Inception meets Total Recall… but I kinda like it… :)
