Fear Effect certainly didn’t hide away its female star Hana, and fans of the PSone original may remember the character prancing around with a pistol in nothing but a bath robe. To be honest, we were never clear whether she was wearing a dress or a towel, and it’s no less obvious in PlayStation 4 re-imagining Fear Effect Reinvented.
The cel-shading in these early screenshots appears to be out, with a more “realistic” artstyle employed instead. “The new version will be characterised by a completely new graphics in accordance with today’s standards and a few gameplay modifications, making the game more appealing for today’s players, while remaining faithful to the original story-wise,” the press release reads.
We’re not sure what to think of it really. It definitely doesn’t look like it’s up to scratch with modern games, and it’s lost all of the cartoon-ish personality of the 2000 title. There’s no release date attached to this yet, so there’s probably more work to be done. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
