Capcom made a splash earlier this week when they announced Remember Me. Developed by Paris based DONTNOD Entertainment, Remember Me is a third person action adventure game for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and is scheduled for release in May 2013. A lot of people have compared this game to Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs but I’ll let you be the judge of that. From the snippets, I’m interested to see how they will try to turn Nilin into a character that the player can relate to and route for. From the two videos, I don’t feel sorry for her at all, so far it seems like she deserved what she got.
Remember Me is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.
Speculative, stunning vision of our future – Discover Neo-Paris 2084, where augmented reality and memory digitization have taken control of people’s lives.
Play as Nilin, an elite memory hunter with a clouded past – Become the most wanted memory hunter in Neo-Paris and experience the power to break into people’s minds to steal their memories.

Memory Remix – This innovative new gameplay mechanic allows players to use Nilin’s powers and alter parts of people’s memories in real-time gameplay. This will change characters’ complete perspective on their self-image and the people around them, which can have grave consequences for the world in 2084.
A balanced mix of combat and exploration – Fight your way through the different environments Neo-Paris has to offer, using Nilin’s proficiency in martial arts, as both hunter and prey!
