Rise of Nightmares Goes on Vacation

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Most of you know about the existence of SEGA's upcoming Kinect title Rise of Nightmares. We know that it's a survival horror game, where players have to navigate through a mansion to try and find the un-named protagonist's kidnapped wife, whilst surviving traps and legions of zombies. What we don't know is exactly how your wife came to be trapped in a mansion in the first place.

Well, the new 'Euro Vacation' trailer that has arrived out of Gamescom attempts to solve that conundrum for you.

You know those zombies that I was telling you about? Well, SEGA also wishes to demonstrate some of the ways that you'll be able to kill them too.

As is usual during big gaming events, developers also choose to re-release old screenshots and trailers mixed in with their new assets. Here is the handful of re-released screenshots that were chucked in with those above:
