Swery65’s D4 Coming to Xbox One This Friday

This just in from Tokyo Game Show: Swery65’s D4 launches on September 19 as a $14.99 digital download for Xbox One (that’s this Friday).

D4 stars the young, eccentric, and hip David Young, whose wife was killed two years prior, and whose killer hasn’t yet been brought to justice. D4 stands for “Dark Dreams Don’t Die” and also serves as a reference to the fourth dimension – and as you can see in this launch trailer, it’s far from a “normal” adventure game.

Note: D4 can be played using either a controller or Kinect.

For more details on D4, including an interview with director Swery65 (aka Hidetaka Suehiro), click over to Xbox Wire.

    Not sure how this managed to escape my radar…… Looks just quarky-90s-hot-Japanese-gaming enough to be a good trip down memory lane while offering some of that New School Adventure that Tell Tale made relevant with The Walking Dead. I’m looking forward to checking this out…. And utilizing my Kinect for sure!!!! What do you guys think?!?!

      I’m happy about the stealth release. No hyped build up before release means people can judge the game on its own merits even though its not a mainstream title.

        Destiny at first was a little underwhelming but its grown on me and I have to admit now I love it. Just farming loot on earth getting some sweet gear. Light level 22 right now and looking to get up to 26 then I’m going to have to find some people to do the raid with.

        Right on bro. Yeah I was the exact same way. At first I thought it wasn’t amazing and thought it was just okay… but it has totally become a borderline obsession hahah. It’s so addictive to try to get the best gear and take down high level strikes..

        As for the raid, right now we have 5 people in our clan total and we all play together all the time we’re looking for a 6th to take it down so if you’re interested let me know. We probably won’t be starting it for another day or so because we’re all sitting at level 23-24 and only have one or two pieces of legendary gear each so we still have some grinding to do but yeah very soon we will be looking to take on the raid.

      You don’t use your kinect for voice commands? Damn man I use mine constantly. I’m in the preview program and I hate the new snap feature for controllers so I use voice even more now.

      I know what you mean though, finally a decent looking kinect game.

        Agreed I am SO tired of every game developer jumping on the episodic fad. As if breaking the game up in pieces to stretch profits. As if Gamers cringe at 20 bucks but break it up into 4 episodes at 5 makes it easier to absorb cost wise.

        Rather get a whole game at once instead of trying that ridiculous cr@p of trying to break it into pieces.

        Cuts already happened. 18,000 people lost they jobs at Microsoft a few months back. How upset would you be if you got fired only to see Microsoft spend $2.5 billion on a game lol.

        Pissed i imagine. But like alot of companies ms probably hired alot of people who were not necessary and superfluous only to go doh! and later realize they have no choice but to cut their jobs. just assuming

        Minecraft was a wise investment given its use user base. Whether they overpaid is another thing.

        However to claim that the cuts were not needed and had anything to do with their minecraft. purchase is wrong.

        Most of the people that lost their jobs were from redundant positions. MS absorbed all of Nokias staff along with their own and had to let a lot of people go and or reposition some of them.

        That was the main reason for that.

    Anyone else leery about this? Episodic sudden release i dunno

    also it looks way too much like a telltales game based mainly on story and environment sacrificing gameplay

    Not seeing any real gameplay here. Hope this isn’t basically a choose your own adventure style of gameplay which i suspect it is.

    I want real games with actual gameplay not that pseudo quick time spliced with story

        Well, if I get it right, the last Swery game was deadly premonition and the gameplay was terrible.
        So he might have just removed the gameplay.

      • Peter

        agreed but the deadly premonition has a cult following oddly. You have some game designers that are all style and no substance when it comes to actual gameplay. My guess is that this game will have a cool look and feel and the actual gameplay is more akin to a quicktime kinect event interspersed Fun for a quick playthrough when bored but won’t hold your attention when its finished.Meaning zero replay value.
