Sega and Chunsoft display Imabikisou trailer

Imabikisou looks like a mish-mash of Japanese horror movies, swirled together in a tasty bowl of graphic novel-like gameplay to deliver an insanely realistic experience to leave you breathless. Yeah, the trailer is about as weird as the "video" from the Ring movie, except it's in color. The best thing to do is to watch the video, tilt your head to the side, then decide whether or not you're interested in the game, brought to us by Sega, after seeing this very odd trailer.

1. I don't see any gameplay, so im not sure if you can really "confirm" that there is gameplay in that trailer at all. Could be a trailer made from different cut scenes and that sort of thing all composited together.

As soon as I see some videos pop up on Gametrailers labeled as "gameplay" then im going to just calm my little jap-horror-lovin ass down.

2. i hate horror stuff, but i grew curious of this.

i can't go through the entire trailer...
the wide-open eyes at the beginning were enough to stop me.

sucks, because of my pansyness, i miss out on some excellent games (Resident Evil, Silent Hill, for example).

ahhh well.

4. "“The younger brother who” establishes the genre, sound novel 'ardently other than the grass', 'the night' 3 section works of being concerned and 'the town' is sold, the sound which has scenario and the appearance impression of showing the development which differs completely depending upon divergence, fascinating many people. In addition, when one time story is cleared, you say that item of the choices increases, furthermore reaches the point where the countless story can be enjoyed, also the game sending included element is prepared, heart of the game fan the [ku] immediately the [tsu] is.

'The younger brother night' 'town' of the grass' 'being concerned calls is transplanted ardently even in the play station and topic, recently 'night 2 of town' 'being concerned' with PSP, 'the night ×3 of being concerned' sells at play station 2.

And, complete new work '忌 fire drafting' of the fear sound novel which even starting point of the sound novel can be said it appears “Sega ## [chiyunpurojiekuto]” 5th as feature in play station 3!"

ummmm.....what?

6. @4 - I was going to harass you for posting nonsense, then I realized you were quoting something. Their website perhaps?

Nonetheless, this game, while I have no idea what it is about, has me interested.

7. I'm interested in this game as well, I hope it's even more freaky than what the trailer showed.
