And it turns out it’s none other than a remake of XIII, a FPS based on the famous Belgian comics, which was originally released on various platforms (including the GameCube).

This remake is developed by Play Magic, and will be released on November 13th in Europe and North America. More details about it will be shared at a later date, but in the mean time, here’s a trailer and some details:

Play as «Thirteen», a talented soldier who lost his memory and has been accused of killing the President of the United States. You wake up injured and amnesic on Brighton Beach with the only clue being a small key and a mysterious tattoo « XIII » next to your clavicle.
