Square Enix plans on releasing Mindjack, a third-person shooter developed by Lost Odyssey studio Feelplus, in North America first. Mindjack brings robots and mind-controlled gorillas to North America on January 18. Japan gets the game on January 27.
Mindjack takes place in 2031 where Jim Corbijn, an elite Direct Intervention Force agent from the Federal Intelligence Agency, gets caught in between a war with governments and corporations. Jim has the ability to hack into people and robot’s minds to take control of them.
Mindjack’s most unique feature is usually the one least discussed. Players can leave their single player campaign game open to the Internet. It’s an optional feature, but if you turn it on another player can jump in as a friend or enemy.
