D4: don’t expect it on any platform besides Xbox One, cautions Swery

Wednesday, 27th November 2013 10:50 GMT By Dave Cook

D4 – or ‘Dark Dreams Don’t Die’ – creator Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro has stressed that the Xbox One title is only coming out on Microsoft’s console. It’s also not a Deadly Premonition sequel.

Speaking with GamingBolt, Swery said, “Please don’t expect to be able to play D4 on any platform besides the Xbox One. Please understand that D4 is not a sequel to Deadly Premonition.” He added, “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.”

Bigging up the title, he added, “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.”

When quizzed about the game’s length he added, “For each episode, I’m thinking it’ll be about 90~120 minutes for the main parts. We’re working hard to include meta-games and side quests on top of that.”

D4 follows a private investigator as he tried to unravel events surrounding his wife’s death. It involves a lot of time-hopping and sleuthing.

What do you make of it so far? Let us know below.

    the gap between how swery talks about the game and the quality of gameplay shown ( ensures d4 will be another wiseau-level disasterpiece

    @3 you must have the time travelling ability from D4 to know this game will suck before a release date is known

    Ha! I watched that demo and it was pretty weird and funny. I’m definitely getting that game (if the episodes are priced right).

    @5 Yep, CyberMarco. You got it. The One isn’t even available in all territories, and we know barely any of the games that’ll be out during this gen, but this one game that uses kinect? That’s why they are using kinect. We’ll just ignore the fact that kinect is used in other games, has uses outside of games, and will be used in games for years to come. Obviously, they only really ever used kinect for one game.

    Oh wow that is so bad that its not even funny how bad it is. Not just in the sense of gameplay but the voice acting and animations. Kinect just make s it a point and click practically but with how bad the game is I wouldn’t play this if I was bored on a saturday night. It is really really bad.
