Famitsu confirms Hudson horror game The Calling

Wednesday, 8th July 2009 17:36 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Hudson Soft’s Wii horror game, The Calling has been confirmed and scans from Famitsu prove it.

The game will make use of an in-game cell phone to send and receive texts, take video, and record audio. It’s 70 percent complete, and five characters have been shown so far.

Two of the leaked videos that Hudson pulled a while back are posted over on Cubed3.

The Famitsu scans can be found here and here.

No word on a release yet.

    Looks neat as far as the Wii goes but I am not a fan of On-rails games. We aren’t in the arcade days X_X

    Well, considering we aren’t ‘in the arcade days’ isn’t it nice that some people are trying to make up for that? ;)

    I don’t have a problem with on-rails games as long as they’re done well.

    I agree with Hero of Canton, On-rails games, if done well are pretty damn awesome. Killer 7 is the perfect example of that. With EA throwing Dead Space: Extraction out soon which looks like a pretty quality title, there’s still alot of life in the play-mechanic. As usual, it just depends what people do with it.
