Sony To Publish Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare On PlayStation 3

Remember Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare? Infogrames published the game on the PC, PlayStation and PlayStation 2, way back in 2001. That title is now headed to the PlayStation 3, with Sony as its publisher.


The ESRB rated Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare for the PlayStation 3 today, giving it an “M” rating. There’s no rating summary to read, but the content descriptors include Blood and Gore, and Violence. There’s a chance this could be a PSOne Classics download via PlayStation Network, but the ESRB don’t include the PSP as a platform.


Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare lets you play as two characters, Edward and Aline, with each one’s route focused on a different kind of experience. Edward’s is more action-oriented, while Aline’s focuses more on puzzles.


Update: Post updated with some slight changes to the text to make the situation clearer.

    I still have my PS1 copy,i loved this game!Back then i thought “hey another game inspired by RE!”I miss those days of ignorance…

    Weird choice. This game didn’t exactly have a great critical reception, and people are probably still feeling burned by the most recent sequel.

    Then again, if it’s just a PS1 Classics download, that shouldn’t matter much. The quality on the service ranges a lot.

    However, in that case it’s only fair that they give us AITD2 too.

    It would seem pretty pointless them putting up the PSone version when it’s been released on the PS2 which looks/handles better.

    edit: hmm.. seems like the PS2 version wasn’t released in America that may explain it.
