Team Superhot is collaborating with Japanese developer GameTomo to release a new game set in the Superhot universe.
Superhot JP (working title) is described as “a brand new adventure with a distinctive Japanese flavor.” Players will be able to battle enemies in a “variety of new Japan-inspired environments, from hot springs to samurai castles, from seedy Tokyo alleyways to karaoke bars and bullet trains.”
According to the developer, Superhot JP is not a direct sequel to Superhot, but is an alternate story campaign with new levels and weapons.
“The iconic red guy is coming to Japan,” developer GameTomo writes. “With the innovative time-moves-only-when-you-move fps game play, SuperHot JP (not the real title) is a new game set in the Superhot universe. While maintaining the same intoxicating rhythm of slow motion combat, this new Superhot presents a brand new adventure with a distinctive Japanese flavor. Dodge bullets, while bathing in a hot spring.”
The game will be released in Japan for PC and PlayStation 4 to start with.
