[PS3]

Imagine a reporter working hard to make ends meet, maintain their integrity and generally just lead a quiet life. No I'm not talking about me, I'm talking about Keats, the protagonist in the upcoming fantasy adventure from Game Republic, Folklore (FolkSoul in Japan apparently). Set to hit the PS3 exclusively some time in the next year and developed by the legendary game creator Yoshiki Okamoto, executive producer for Onimusha, Devil May Cry and Resident Evil, Folklore is a unique, dark fantasy adventure inspired by western fairy tales.

Set in the mysterious town of Doolin, two strangers, Keats and Ellen, are drawn together to uncover a mysterious legend in a remote village that exists on the border between dreams and reality. They soon learn that the town serves as a gateway to fantastic realms, full of creatures, spirits and monsters. In order to solve the mystery of the town, and their past, the pair must journey through these worlds to uncover its secrets.

STORY OVERVIEW
Despite being a realist, Keats unhappily finds himself a journalist for a third rate occult magazine. One day Keats receives a phone call from a woman asking for his help. Through the static Keats hears the word “Doolin”. Sensing something wrong, Keats rushes to the village, but the woman he believes to have called him, is found murdered. He stays on to find out more about this murder. Strange events follow that night, and he travels to the “Netherworld”. Having lost her mother as a young child, Ellen is prone to dreaming and tends to look away from reality. Strangely, she spends her holidays actively searching England’s countryside for folk stories. She is not so good with people but seems to have a rapport with children and the elderly. One day Ellen receives a letter from the mother she lost as a child, the message proposing a meeting in Doolin. She finds herself in the village at the same time as Keats. Here they wander between “reality” and the 7 Netherworlds, in search of the end to their stories.

KEY FEATURES
• Journey to seven incredibly vibrant realms, all uniquely designed and tailored to fit their distinct personalities. From the ruins of the Undersea City to the never-ending maze of the Endless Corridor, each destination is different from the next.
• Inspired by western fairy tales, players interact with or clash against a cast of over 100 originally designed creatures, characters and monsters.
• Using the SIXAXIS wireless controller, the player must battle monsters and literally “shake” them into submission and “yank” their powers from them. The absorbed powers will be used to capture or defeat the monsters that lie ahead.
• Begin the game as either Keats or Ellen and learn their story and gameplay style. Keats uses traditional direct attacks while Ellen uses strategic methods to trap her enemies. Decisions made in one story line will directly impact the story path of the other.
