Unlike previous titles, this will be a tactical RPG.
Cult classic horror action title Fear Effect finally returns…as a tactical role playing game. Fear Effect Sedna is in development by Sushee with help from the Square Enix Collective program and will head to Kickstarter on April 12th for its funding. The funding goal will be €100,000.
Much like, say, Shadowrun Returns, Fear Effect Sedna will have an isometric perspective where characters take turns in combat and move around the map. You’ll have five characters to control – which means the original cast of Hana, Rain Qin, Royce Glas and Jacob ‘Deke’ DeCourt all return. The roles they’ll play haven’t been confirmed but you can count on the story continuing from Retro Helix.
If funded, Fear Effect Sedna will release in 2017. Whether you’re a fan or not of the PS1 action series, it’s good to see the return of Fear Effect. Let us know what you think of the new tactical RPG approach in the comments.
