Hudson Officially Announces Calling

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Check out the upcoming Wii survival horror title in action!

For those of you who don't already know, Hudson is currently working on a new survival horror game called Calling.

The first screenshots of the game in action have just been released and as you can see, it's looking pretty creepy. The game is currently on schedule for a Spring 2010 release, so it's still a ways off.

You can check out the official press release below along with the batch of brand new screenshots of the game in action.


The Black Page
Rumor has it that you will die if you visit the Black Page Website and see “something” in the site. Anyone can visit the site, but only a few can actually see things within the site. The site is literary all in black and just shows a counter. Some say the site is a hoax, a prank, or a marketing ploy. A few people say the site is a bridge to something sinister and the counter indicates the number of people who have died after seeing the site.

Main Characters
Those who see something in the Black Page begin to stray somewhere between life and death. There are multiple characters who are present throughout the game. The Calling revolves around these characters and their fight for survival.

In-Between Space
The spirits of the dead go to the space-between-space where the Calling revolves around. This place is made up by the memory of dead characters and various locations in the space such as houses, schools and hospitals etc. Someone or something is drawing the living to this space for a reason that becomes apparently horrifying once the characters discover the truth.


  • Traditional Survival Horror: No rocket launchers, no chain saws, no suits of armor. Calling is a story that revolves around real people in their fight for survival.
  • Intuitive controls designed for the Wii to navigate characters throughout the world.
  • Equipment: Flash lights, note pads, radios, etc. that you can use to escape the Calling

As usual, we'll have more information on Calling as it becomes available, as well as a full review when the game is released.

hopefully the sales of the so called core-games will go up as well.

Things the gameplay trailer I saw on YouTube tell us to do... If you see a mysterious hand looking like that of a corpse vanishing under a bed, do go wave your arm there.

I don't know what "on-rails horror games" are really like, but I heard guesses on some boards (IGN? YouTube?) that this looks like one.

Even though it sounds cliche I'll still prolly look into it, since I love survival horror.

I like how the Wii is getting all of these titles announced the past few months. I am not much for survival horror games but its good to see companies like Hudson supporting the Wii.

Since we are not getting Fatal Frame in the US, this game will have to do. It does sound pretty cool! I'm looking forward to it! Hooray for Hudson!

I hope the Wii is remembered for being 'the console that kept survival horror alive' (amongst other things), scary s*** man, like it!

The article about this game on Gamespot is making a big deal about it using the Wiimote speaker for incoming cell phone calls (like in Lit, though they never mentioned that game). Why didn't that feature even get a MENTION in this article?



Corbs said:

In all honesty, every piece of info we have on the game is above. That's the entire press release. So if you didn't see it, we didn't have it at the time.

In that case, it was very rude of Hudson to give Gamespot more info about the game than they gave Nintendo Life.
