Once upon a time the FMV was all the rage in video games, especially back on PC in the '90s. Well, it's having something of a comeback on Switch. First, there's the recently released The Bunker, and now Japanese handheld owners are getting another live-action romp in the form of horror outing, Closed Nightmare.
Mixing live-action sequences, exploration and other in-game challenges, the game follows the unfortunate journey of a kidnapped woman attempting to escape a gruesome experiment. Heroine/victim Maria Kamishiro also has her left arm paralyzed, although we don't know how that will affect gameplay (if at all) just yet.
It's due to hit Nintendo Switch in Japan on 19th July. No news yet on a western version. So what do you make of this unusual offering? Do live-action segments still have a place in modern gaming? Have your say below...
There's another FMV game that was announced last week: Late Shift.
Going by that screenshot, maybe she should turn the lights on?
It is truly horrifying that FMV games are making a comeback on Switch. But if we have to endure it we may as well get a Mad Dog McCree remake.
Why are FMV "games" coming back?🤨
Also: Switch=hybrid or just console👍
@Rika_Yoshitake What ?! Are you sure ? I hoped that it's ported on the Switch ! You made my day !!!
@gurtifus Yep, it's on the Eshop coming soon section. It releases in 2 weeks.
Bring PUBG to Switch Please
@gurtifus It's on the eShop, listed as 'Coming Soon' - at least here in Australia.
Great FMV game. I loved Late Shift. The choose your own adventure thing it had going on was awesome, and the acting was fantastic.
Oh i miss the old 3DO console and all the FMV, Gex, Terminator, Mad Dog, that space cowboy game too, the first need for speed etc...
