Looks and sounds like Condemned with HOTD4 art direction, so yeah don't expect scary japanese horror shite, but proper italian zombie/horror pulp (who needs horror anyway). Looking forward to this, hopefully more info will follow on E3.

This is a horror-adventure game in which players assume the role of an American tourist who must rescue his wife from a deranged scientist. From a first-person perspective, players use brass knuckles, knives, hatchets, and chainsaws to kill zombie-like creatures and disfigured monsters inside a mansion environment. Combat is highlighted by exaggerated sprays of blood, and damage often results in dismemberment or decapitation-stray body parts sometimes litter the ground. Some sequences and cutscenes depict more intense acts of violence: a man screams loudly as spikes impale his body; a restrained character's hand is chopped off before he is killed; a character (cut in half) crawls away in a pool of blood; a soldier is ripped apart by a monster, causing blood to stain the screen. During the course of the game, some female creatures are depicted in revealing outfits (e.g., 'pasties' that partially cover their breasts); in one sequence, a woman sits on the central character's chest and engages in suggestive dialogue (e.g., 'Oh, how I've thought of this-night after night. How I've missed these lips.'). Dialogue also includes phrases such as 'Best sex of my life.'/'Worst sex of my life,' 'f**k,' and 'sh*t.'

Kinect to hack at zombies? Sounds awesome. I hope the japanese put a feature in to allow us to grope the hot polygon skanks in it.

I have a feeling that they are using the HOTD4 engine.

Sega Golden Gun (which also uses the HOTD4 engine) also looks similar-ish

Either way, I don't care about graphics, Im really siked for this game. This game has a SEGA art direction to it (unlike Yakuza), which makes me happy.

It's not a shooter... care to read next time:

Use your whole body to fight the undead horde with physical brutality.

Looks good to me and better than 100% of the current crop of Kinect shovelware on the market right now.

Uh oh, controlling your character sounds like nightmare :( Combat sound good, use a pair of tongs to take an enemies nose off... awesome (40 weapons in total as well)! While I hope it gets a bit fixed till it's september release, I will buy this (and a Kinect for it) anyway.

Im not expecting it to perform well... that's definately the HOTD4 engine, you can see that in the new screens, it uses the same basic model for humans as well. So it's running on a 6 year old engine, but who cares about graphis huh art direction is fantastic. If I pick my games it's art direction over graphics anyday. Haven't seen an interesting SEGA art direction on consoles for a long time (Yakuza and Valkyrie Chronicles ugh...).

Anyway new screens, gameplay cam footage (and a pathetic teaser video that shows absolutely no gameplay at all):

A positive "Hands On" about the controls for a change:
http://www.segabits.com/?p=13837

I think many of previews didn't give the game a chance (on the notion that you look ridiculous playing this), so didn't had the time to adjust to the controls.

Sega spokesman looks suspicously like dutch rapper MC Brainpower:

Shadows Of The Damned and F3AR would be a safer bet.
