Well, this was certainly unexpected. I never thought this day would come, but a sequel to the GameCube horror classic Eternal Darkness has been revealed, titled Shadow of the Eternals.
A teaser trailer on IGN has just been uploaded, revealing the first ever glimpse of the game. While the game is now under development by new studio Precursor Games, as opposed to Silicon Knights, as the trailer states Shadow of the Eternals is being handled by the same team as the original – along with original producer, Dennis Dyack.
The trailer should seem very familiar to Eternal Darkness fans, with demons, medieval locales and demonic themes. It appears to feature an all-new cast, with no Alex Roivas in sight.
With that in mind and the fact that the “Eternal Darkness” label now removed completely, this is more of a “spiritual successor” (as IGN describes it) rather than a traditional sequel. This makes sense, given that Alex’s story appeared to have reached a proper conclusion in the first game and that “Eternal Darkness 2” may alienate a new audience of gamers ten years after the first game released.
Whatever this is, I’m super excited for more insanity effects!
