You may have heard about Venetica before. We’ve spoke about it a bit in the past. It’s a German RPG initially announced for PC and Xbox 360 in 2008. It eventually released on the two platforms in late 2009 in Germany, with a PlayStation 3 release following on December 10, 2010 in the UK. Today, a North American release date has finally been announced, with publisher Atari at its back.
Venetica will launch for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in North America on January 11, 2011. It follows the story of a girl named Scarlett, the daughter of Death, in 16th century Venice as she tries to save the world from a powerful necromancer.
The game didn’t do so amongst reviewers during its initial release (Metacritic), but it’s story is apparently very good. We’ll see how it does come January.
