Original Article (Tue 21st Apr, 2020 14:40 BST): Headup Games has revealed that The Coma 2: Vicious Sisters will be bringing another dose of the series' survival-horror adventure to Switch next month.
The game picks up right where The Coma: Recut left off, although developer Devespresso Games is keen to note that you won't need to have played the original to understand what's going on. This new title sees you taking on the role of Mina Park, a minor side-character from the first game who is forced to escape her deserted high school to elude the clutches of a relentless, psychotic slasher. Ooer.
Here's an official description and feature list:
Mina Park, a student of Sehwa High, awakens in the dead of night in her school. It isn’t long before she realizes that something is amiss. The once-familiar school where she spends her evenings studying looks twisted by something dark and sinister. She finds herself pursued by someone or something that looks eerily like her English teacher. To survive, Mina must venture beyond the boundaries of her school and into the surrounding district. There, she will encounter strange creatures, mysterious strangers, and uneasy allies.
- Fear Dark Song’s relentless pursuit to kill you, now with an all-new AI.
- Craft items to prepare for critical life-or-death situations or risk permanent injury.
- Explore the nightmarish district of Sehwa and discover its dark secrets.
- Scavenge resources to survive deadly encounters and afflictions.
- Unlock tools and upgrades to reach previously inaccessible areas.
- Hide to avoid detection and certain death. Pass challenges to conceal your location.
- Featuring vibrant, hand-illustrated in-game visuals and comic strips.
The original game left us with mixed feelings, so we're hopeful that this sequel will address the flaws that kept it from being a must-play experience. Here's just a little of what we had to say in our review of The Coma: Recut:
The Coma: Recut is interesting in concept, but flawed in its execution. Mixing survival horror with stealth and visual novel elements provides a unique side-scrolling experience. While the anime art style and slow pace might detract from the horror, along with the main mechanic becoming repetitive instead of scary, there is still enough narrative content to get invested in the twisted tale of Sehwa High.
