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.
