Acquire reveals dungeon crawler Mind Zero, isn’t The Last Guy 2

Mind Zero is the new game from The Last Guy developer Acquire. Rumours last week suggested that the studio was making a follow-up to its top-down survival horror title, but instead it unveiled a school-based dungeon crawler split between two planes of existence. So quite, quite different then.

Stylised as “MIND≒0”, the game is heading to PS Vita across Japan in the summer and will be priced at ¥6,279.

This week’s issue of Famitsu was laden with details, revealing that the game is being co-developed with Class of Heroes studio Zerodiv, and spans both a physical and mental realm.

Using a power called MIND, which stands for Mental Inside Nobody Doll, players can summon apparitions to help them fight while in 3D battles.

Much like dark and stylish Square RPG The World Ends With You, Mind Zero will take place in real Japanese locations such as Akihabara, and Yokohama.

Characters revealed so far are protagonist Yue Kotori, a cool and caring type, Sana Chiaki, the game’s female lead whose MIND summon is a barely-dressed elf creature. Then you have clumsy oaf Shishi Ahina and a detective called Youchi Okata. Quite the odd bunch.

The game is said to be 70% complete at the time of writing.

So, what do you make of that then? Sound interesting? Let us know below.
