Haunt from NanaOn-Sha shown at Sydney Opera House

PaRappa the Rapper designer Masaya Matsuura gave a live performance of his work at the Sydney Opera House last night, and attendees were treated to the world premiere of NanaOn-Sha’s Kinect game, Haunt.

Brenna was one of those attendees, and explained to us that the Kinect arcade game was a first-person adventure, where the player is tasked with exploring a creepy house.

While in this spooky place, enemies will come at you and they can be combated by dodging projectiles and jumping shockwaves, and players can dispatch ghosts by shining a flashlight on them.

Players will also be able to navigate the house using the flashlight as they walk around the place searching, and fighting off more humorous than scary looking denizens of the dark.

Brenna said the game looked really pretty as the producers played it on stage, and below you can watch the sneak peek which was shown at TGS last year to see for yourself.

There’s isn’t a date just yet for the horror title, but it has been rated PG by the Australia’s Classification Board, so it shouldn’t be much longer now.

We expect it will be shown at TGS next month.
