Hitman’s Second Elusive Target Coming Next Friday

Hitman [official site] recently introduced ‘Elusive Targets’, people with contracts on their heads who’ll only appear in the game for a short period of actual real time before vanishing forever, and who will also vanish if you fluff the assassination. Alex Spencer flipping loved the tension that brought, but I saw a fair few people note they didn’t even know it was coming. Well then!

A new trailer answers that second question for me, but if you have any more you might find them answered in the six-minute overview of Eidos Montreal’s cyberpunk FPS-RPG sequel. It gets into the plot, looks at Adam’s cool new powers and pals, teases more consequences to decisions, and shows lots of pretty shots of cybercities.

Go West! JRPG I Am Setsuna Gets July Release Date

Against the welcomed deluge of classic Japanese games that’ve landed on western PCs recently, you’d be forgiven for assuming I Am Setsuna [official site] was another rejigged and repackaged oldie.
