Hudson released a final documentary video for their upcoming Wii title, Lost in Shadow
. In it, several of the prominent developers explain a few of the more promising aspects of the game and share short pieces of their experiences on developing it.
It’s fairly short, not too revealing and not much gameplay is shown in between shadowy representations of the developers, but it is worth watching nonetheless if you are at all interested on the game that is released on January 4th of the upcoming year.
In Lost in Shadow, players are confronted with a mysterious tower in an alternative world. The tower is filled with moving shadows yet at the same time, casts a large shadow on everything beneath it. With the help of a winged sylph known as “Spangle,” players can move lights in the foreground to create new shadowy walkways to previously inaccessible areas. Unaffected by gravity while traveling through this medieval landscape, the shadow boy solves mysteries and fights off enemies who stand in his way. The game’s combination of light, shadow, background and foreground creates a unique blend of novel gameplay features, morphing landscapes and artistic visuals. Lost in Shadow is set to launch on January 4, 2011 on the Nintendo Wii.
