Horror is Calling to the Wii

The Wii is stepping up its more mature oriented games in its attempt to lasso the more hardcore crowd from Sony and Microsoft. Its latest attempt is Calling, a new survival horror game from Hudson that will come out in Spring 2010.

Calling has a rather interesting premise behind it. It revolves around the Black Page website which reveals an image that some people can see and some can’t. Those who can see the image travel to the In-Between Space that is made up of the thoughts of other characters who have died. We see the events unfold through multiple characters as they figure out who or what brought them to this space.

Calling seems to be a psychological horror game from years past. There will be no rocket launchers or advanced weaponry, just flashlights, radios, notepads and our wits. In other words, all we need.
