Capcom and Dontnod team for new game, 'Remember Me'

Remember Me is a cyberpunk, third-person action game from Capcom and Paris-based developer Dontnod Entertainment, set to launch in May 2013 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. Remember Me is the new wrapper for Adrift, a game we covered at Gamescom last year.

"Set in 2084 Neo Paris, where memories are bought and sold," Remember Me stars Nilin, an elite memory hunter. She is trained in martial arts and has the job of stealing and changing people's memories, while the company Memoryeyes saves these memories in the cloud. Nilin's entire identity is erased, and the game's story takes off when she wakes up in the Bastille prison.

As the above video demonstrates, Remember Me channels the brawling of Devil May Cry and aesthetic of Deus Ex.
