Capcom's stylish new IP Remember Me has managed a third-place debut in the UK video games chart.
Capcom and French developer Dontnod's Remember Me seems set for a strange fate. Sure to be forgotten in the rush to pore over the new consoles as they flash their wares once more at E3 next week, what at first glance seems like an average action yarn has all the traits to ensure it's the kind of thing we'll all recall fondly in years to come. A future cult classic, in other words, being sent off to that strange heaven where the likes of PN03 and Binary Domain reside.
Everyone has been through events in their life that they would prefer to forget. But what if you actually could forget them? Or give them to someone else? Or even change your recollection of what happened so that you no longer had to live with the pain, guilt or bitterness that you were left with as a result?
In Remember Me, the first game from French studio Dontnod, scientists have made that breakthrough. It's the late 21st century and the citizens of Neo-Paris - a futuristic metropolis built following a European war - are all equipped with Sensens, devices that allow people to import, export and modify their memories. Those within a bubble of privilege at the centre of the city live in blissful ignorance of their past misdemeanours, waited on by silent robot drones and guarded by electric barricades.
All is not well, however, as players discover when they take control of Nilin, a young woman who is about to have what's left of her memory wiped as punishment for some unnamed crime. With help from a mysterious accomplice named Edge, Nilin escapes into the slums below Neo-Paris, where she experiences the other side of Sensen society.

A new trailer for Remember Me, the upcoming futuristic action adventure game out in May, has been released.
It shows Nilin, the Lara Croft-sounding English elite memory hunter who suffers from amnesia at the beginning of the game, pottering about Neo Paris 2084. At one point she's pushed to the ground by a robot, who apologises for the inconvenience.
Then, towards the end of the video, Nilin faces off in a one-on-one fight against beefcake boss Kid Xmas, who has his own hacking channel, Channel Fear, which airs everyday at 9pm in Neo-Paris. In a nod to Capcom fighting game series Street Fighter, a screen displays mugshots of the two combatants with a VS. symbol in between. Remind you of anything?
