Akaneiro Will Be Next Game From American McGee

The first thing anyone will usually think of when hearing the name American McGee is going to be Alice in Wonderland. With two Alice games under his belt, he’s looking to step past that reputation and begin a new gaming venture entitled Akaneiro: Demon Hunters.

Akaneiro: Demon Hunters is going to be a free-to-play RPG that will loosely translate the story of Little Red Riding Hood into the feudal Japan era with an Okami art style and Diablo inspired dungeon crawling. You’ll play as a red-hooded figure that belongs to a clan of hunters dedicated to the protection of humanity from Yokai or demons from Japanese folklore.

With American McGee’s name behind it and what seems like a winning combination of style and substance I know I’ll be looking forward to this game when it releases for mobile devices and PC later this year.

If you’re even more interested you can sign up for the closed Beta over at developer Spicy Horse’s website.
