The original Dementium: The Ward came out way back in 2007 for the Nintendo DS. Created by Renegade Kid, it received pretty positive reviews, with a 72.75% score on Game Rankings. At the time, it was a unique proposition for Nintendo’s handheld. There hadn’t been any horror/FPS games released up until that point. The game ran smoothly, although the graphics were pretty basic. It sufficiently went through the actions to make it a creepy experience, one that’s reminiscent of a Silent Hill meets Doom crossover.
In just a few weeks (on December 3), Dementium gets remastered for the 3DS. It will be available on the eShop for digital download. The graphics have seen a nice overhaul and fully utilize the 3D effect, which should aid in providing an even more immersive experience. It supports the C-Stick on the New Nintendo 3DS for dual-stick controls as well as the Circle Pad Pro. Check out the latest video below!
