Minoru Nakai, director of Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, and Yukinori Kitajama, scenario writer on 428 and more recently Okamiden (pictured), are designing a Nintendo 3DS game that utilizes sound to the fullest.
Nazo Waku Mansion (it’s something like Deluding Mysterious Mansion in English) has 3D graphics and audio. The game’s genre is a "mystery adventure" and players will explore the mansion. However, all of the controls are done with a touch screen and the microphone. Similar to point and click adventures, players can scan the room by tapping on commands with the stylus. Move the Nintendo 3DS to change the camera angle, Nazo Waku Mansion uses the Nintendo 3DS’ built-in gyro sensor for this feature. It’s possible to talk to characters within the mansion using the game’s voice input system and the microphone too.
The game’s graphical style was compared to D, which has a mix of animation and fantasy. You can see a trailer for the old 3DO version here.
Capcom plans to release Nazo Waku Mansion in Japan this summer.
