News: "Players reassemble decapitated body parts." It's like Dead Space's evil twin.
Legion was a pretty decent B-movie from January that starred Paul Bettany as the archangel Michael battling demons and other angels in an attempt to save mankind from the apocalypse. Konami's Neverdead, recently announced at E3, isn't an adaptation of Legion, but the stories carry enough similarities that it may as well be:
Neverdead begins in the waking hours of peace and calm, when the world is under threat of being consumed by a demonic plague. Centuries have passed since the world succumbed to an unforeseen shadow of evil, and a hero was made an immortal by demons. These demons have risen once again in the present day causing unrelenting mayhem reinforced by destructible environments within the game. Now using his immortalic regenerative powers re-assembling his own body to evade death, the hero carries out the only salvation the world will know, for he is Never Dead.
In development for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Neverdead will feature "a third-person action gameplay set in a fantasy and horror-influenced universe where supernatural battles between humans and extraordinary creatures blanket a vast city landscape. Gamers will wield a butterfly design-inspired sword and an arsenal of guns to decimate waves of ungodly enemies in the not-too-distant future."
Neverdead doesn't currently have a release date.
