Sushee and Square Enix Collective announced today a sequal to their indie hit Fear Effect, the sequel is called Fear Effect Sedna and will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch 6, March 2018.
“Fear Effect Sedna generated an amazing response from fans of the series when we ran our Kickstarter, and with the support of Square Enix Collective and co-producer Forever Entertainment, we’re excited to see just what they make of it come release,” offers Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee.
Fear Effect Sedna is co-written by the original writer of the series Hana, Glas and Deke along with a newcomer Axel. But Sedna isn’t the only title in the works, the recently announced Fear Effect Reinvented is under its way, a remastered version of the original game that released 18 years ago, set to be released on the same platforms as Sedna.
“2018 is a big year for Fear Effect and a big year for Collective alike,” says Phil Elliott, Director of Indie Publishing at Square Enix West. “When Square Enix launched Collective, one of the goals was to see if opening up some of our established IP to benefit indie studios, and it’s great to see how Sushee have gone about the task. Fear Effect Sedna is going to be an important chapter in our story for that very reason, and we think 2018 is going to be the year when gamers finally reconnect with the world of Hana, Rain, Glas and Deke.”
