As gamers get set to return to Jules Verne's Mysterious Island once again in the adventure sequel from Kheops, now they can see for themselves just what is in store, as the first two trailers have recently been released.
In the original Return to Mysterious Island, young Mina overcame a variety of survival challenges when washed ashore on the abandoned tropical island once inhabited by Captain Nemo. Her rescue, however, so tantalizingly close at the end of that game, proves not so successful in this one, as seen in the introductory cinematic of the sequel. This video shows the ill-fated attempt to escape the island aboard a helicopter and the reason for Mina's forced return to her island home.
The second trailer provides a nice sampling of in-game footage, detailing some of the lush environments and new challenges awaiting Mina and her simian pal Jep, both of whom are playable characters in this game. Whether charming snakes, making pottery, or mixing and matching complex inventory combinations, the pair must overcome a whole new set of obstacles as they seek to discover the nature of the deadly green gas that is afflicting the plant life on the island.
For more details about the game, be sure to check out our recent preview. Additional information can be found at the game's official website, where you can also get downloadable versions of the above videos.
