Square Enix to bring Scarygirl to XBLA and PSNNews
An action/platformer based on Nathan Jurevicius’ graphic novel Scarygirl will land on XBLA and PSN later this month. Developed by Tikgames and published by Square Enix, Scarygirl will hit the Xbox 360 on January 18, and will follow on the PS3 on January 24.
You will be able to play as a girl who is dressed up like a pirate, and has a tentable arm. Yes, for real. She sets out into the world to find out why she is having scary dreams, and in this game she will actually encounter a haunting man from those dreams. There will be upgradable tentacles, equip-able items and even co-op play.
As you might be able to tell is Square Enix is jumping in quick while they get the chance. The graphic novel is already a big deal, and a fully animated Scarygirl feature film is currently in the works as well. So, they are most certainly trying to stir the pot while they can.
