Snowy adventure Syberia 3 finally out today

"Kate Walker, no!"

Adventure game Syberia 3 [official site] was originally announced in a dark and mysterious year known as “2009”. Following many delays and postponements, it finally came out in Europe today, accompanied by a launch trailer that includes some unimaginably bad voice acting and Hong Kong cinema levels of lip syncing. And although all that is probably a result of developer Microïds’ localising it from their original French, I am certain the English trailer still qualifies as a tragic comedy.

“KATE WALKER, NO!” is my favourite line. It’s true some people are blessed with names that simply must be said in full. But none are so powerful as protagonist Kate Walker’s name, which retains its completeness even in the event of a life-threatening crash.

The first Syberia, in 2002, made John feel good inside, but the second made him feel blind rage. How will the third fare? We’ve got him trudging through the adventure snow to find out. This time ex-lawyer Kate is helping the mystical creatures known as “snow ostriches” to complete their migration. If you are a North American and you want to get ostriched up, sorry, your release date is April 25. As for pricing, it's £29.99 for us Eurofolk and $39.99 for you.
