Of all the Xbox One titles to be revealed thus far, Access Games’ D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die is definitely one of the odder picks. Developed by the same team that brought us Deadly Premonition, it’s helmed by director Hidetaka Suehiro aka SWERY. We had a chance to ask the man what he’d tell players to NOT expect with D4, to which he stated:
“1. Please don’t expect to be able to play D4 on any platform besides the Xbox One.
2. Please understand that ‘D4 is not a sequel to Deadly Premonition’.
3. This is not what you think about with Kinect. This game is something the core will be able to enjoy and see why Kinect is a great enhancement to gaming as a whole.
“We’re working hard on the production of this new title – D4 – by setting up the foundation of ’emotional involvement’ and ‘realistic senses and feelings’. I feel that we are basically creating a kind of game that’s really the first of its kind. We’re aiming to create the sort of game that will truly become an “experience” in the players’ lives, and I really think you’ll like what we have in store. That’s all, I love you all!”
D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die sees players taking on the role of a private investigator who can travel through time and attempts to undo the murder of his wife. An episodic exclusive for Xbox One, D4’s release date is still to be announced.
