Developer Sushee has announced that Fear Effect Sedna – an isometric action/strategy take on the PlayStation franchise – is coming on March 6 (PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC), with the game's first trailer showing off Sedna's gameplay renaissance for the series.

Sedna brings together Hana, Rain, Glas, Deke, and new character Axel, and the coordination of this crew is the core of the title's gameplay. Players can pause the game in order to make sure everyone is in place to ensure maximum teamwork. "It's an approach that taps into the core structure of the original games," says Benjamin Anseaume, Sushee founder, "but with the technology available to us today, feels very 2018."

The game – which is co-written by original series' writer John Platten – centers around the team investigating Inuit mythology, and includes puzzle sequences as well as death cutscenes like the original games.

Sushee is also working on a remastered version of the original Fear Effect title, Fear Effect Reinvented, for the same slate of current platforms in 2018.
