Mindjack Hacks Its Way Into Stores In January

By Spencer . October 19, 2010 . 10:21pm


Mindjack, the other body snatching third person shooter from Square Enix, will be the publisher’s first console game of 2011. After a delay from October to sometime next year, Square Enix set January 27, 2011 as Mindjack’s release date in Japan.


While we don’t have a specific date, Square Enix has Mindjack on their Q1 2011 release calendar for North America.


The 3rd Birthday has a similar system where players swap bodies with computer controlled characters, but this game is different because (1) it has online play, (2) online play has a passive mode where other players can jump into your game as enemies, and (3) you can finally see who will win in a shootout – a flight attendant or a mind controlled gorilla.

    Seeing that this is obviously one of those “made for the west” games, I can’t imagine the US release date is far behind. Doesn’t look like my thing but I’d try it out for the concept.

    I bet on the flight attendant if she’s using that mecha in from the bottom picture.

  • Few games have ever had a trailer so bad that they actually made me completely disinterested in the game. This is one of them.

  • Square Enix has a packed Q1, I do not think there are many other games of this nature releasing in q1 if my memory serves correct.
