Sea of Solitude

Sea of Solitude, a single-player, narrative game, has been revealed during EA’s E3 presentation.

Developer Jo-Mei Games has announced its partnership with EA to bring Sea of Solitude to life in early 2019 as an EA Original.

Jo-Mei CEO Cornelia Geppert took the stage today, stating the game takes place in a fantastical world focused around solitude and loneliness.

The description on the game’s trailer page reads:

“When humans get too lonely, they turn into monsters. That’s what happened to Kay. But she’s not alone – this ocean is full of creatures just like her. Finding them may be the key to changing her back.”

Sea of Solitude seems to follow Limbo and Inside-esque storytelling and follows its female protagonist, Kay, through the darkest parts of her life. Geppert went on to describe how she wrote the game when she was “loneliest” in order to tell a story that, despite its seemingly unrealistic setting, she feels is entirely true.

Konami Willing to Make More Remasters

Zone of the Enders Konami

Konami has said that it is willing to remaster more games if fans ask for them.

During an IGN interview at E3 about Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars, Konami brand manager Benjamin Kinney expressed the company’s willingness to produce more remasters:

“Eventually if you’re loud enough and you speak with one voice, anything is possible.”

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars is a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game featuring a new VR mode, coming to PC and PlayStation 4. The title was initially announced at Sony’s Tokyo Games Show in 2017.

The remaster will come native at 4K with recreated textures, updated particle effects, and new control schemes to name just a few of the many improvements across the game. The title also includes a new Very Easy mode so players can experience the story.

The most notable addition is VR support. Playing Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in VR will put the gamer in the cockpit of Jehuty, the character’s giant mecha. Konami has recreated the cut scenes and assets to contribute to an immersive situation. The developers have worked with first-party VR companies such as PlayStation VR and HTC Vive to refine the game, making it as smooth as possible to reduce any chance of motion sickness.

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars has a gallery mode with VR where users can tumble and look at various models in game. The game will sport “next-gen audio,” supporting Dolby Atmos and Dolby 7.1 surround sound.

The first game has not been remastered for the PlayStation 4 nor VR, but if the fans ask for it, Konami may listen.

4K and VR demos are available on the PlayStation Store to download.
