“Alternate” Superhot To Debut In Japan Featuring Different Levels (VIDEO)
A new Superhot is in development, this time targeted more towards the Japanese market. According to developer GameTomo, the new game, titled ‘Superhot Jp,’ will reflect Japanese culture and its environments. “Battle the red guys in a variety of Japan-inspired environments, from hot springs to samurai castles, from seedy Tokyo alleyways to karaoke bars and bullet trains.”
Superhot JP isn’t actually a sequel to the original game, with the developer labeling it moreso an “alternate story campaign.” That said, the first campaign, while short, was full of interesting twists and pulse-pounding gameplay, so it is likely we can expect much of the same from the Japanese version. There currently isn’t a release date for the game, with GameTomo stating that it will release first in Japan, “then possibly other countries worldwide.” Here’s the trailer for the original Superhot, followed by the description of the game:
Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT is the FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
With its unique, stylized graphics SUPERHOT finally adds something new and disruptive to the FPS genre. SUPERHOT’s polished, minimalist visual language helps you concentrate on the most important – on the fluidity of gameplay and cinematic beauty of the fight.”
Superhot is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
