PS3 Child of Eden due in Sept.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi's latest psychedelic on-rails rhythm shooter set to arrive on Sony's system months after Xbox 360 edition's June 14 debut.
Last month, Ubisoft confirmed a June 14 launch date for the Xbox 360 version of Child of Eden, with its PlayStation 3 sibling set to arrive at a nebulous later date. The publisher has narrowed that window down a bit, today announcing that the PS3 edition of Child of Eden is expected to launch sometime this September.
Developed by Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Q Entertainment, Child of Eden is largely in keeping with the developer's previous work. The game takes its cues in large part from Mizuguchi's acclaimed rhythm shooter Rez, and it features the same style of music-enhanced shooter gameplay with psychedelic visuals.
It also bears a storyline: Gamers will attempt to rescue the embattled Project Lumi, which is an effort to "reproduce a human personality inside Eden, the archive of all human memories." A virus has invaded the program, however, and players must defeat it, before all hope is lost.
The game's visual style approximates a virtual reality universe and is heavily reliant on geometric shapes in motion against an ever-shifting background. The shapes join to take on aspects of the virus, evolving from tiny single-block creatures to giant wormlike monstrosities.
