Majesco Entertainment announced today the release of The Hidden, an augmented reality (AR) ghost-hunting adventure game for the Nintendo 3DS system. Developed by 1st Playable Productions, The Hidden utilizes the Nintendo 3DS as a portal to the astral plane and investigate real-world environments with the camera on the 3DS. With the goal to search, capture and destroy supernatural entities as a paranormal investigator, The Hidden aims to bring the spiritual world to your world from your 3DS.
“The new genre of augmented reality is an exciting direction for video games because it combines the real and virtual worlds in an unprecedented way,” said Jesse Sutton, CEO, Majesco Entertainment. “The Hidden is all about bridging worlds which conceptually is a great fit for the ghost hunting theme. Gamers everywhere will get a thrill out of discovering what’s truly hidden in some of their favorite real-world spots.”
In The Hidden, players are part of an elite squad known as the Ghostly Entity Investigation and Strike Team, (G.E.I.S.T.), and with the team, you must work together to destroy evil spirits and eliminate mysterious outbreaks that threaten life itself. The Hidden charges players to bring their 3DS to new locations to investigate the world around them in 12 exciting missions.
