Details and Footage of Cancelled Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun Emerge

Perhaps Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun isn’t so dead after all?

Several videos for the previously cancelled game Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun have, out of nowhere, surfaced. Created by Climax, Dead Sun was originally set to debut at 2012’s E3, but was decidedly cut out of the show and cancelled after some time.

According to NeoGAF user Mama Robotnik, Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun was originally being developed under the secret codename “Black Cloth”. The video that they had planned to debut at E3 had been created by none other than Square-Enix’s CG department. Along with the videos, artwork was also made public online today, much of it featuring various areas and aspects of the fictional in-game city of Nosgoth, including a shot of both humans and vampires living together. Nosgoth, purportedly, had severe laws set in place in order to shoo off any ideas of fighting, severe conflict, or feeding/killing others. Main protagonist Gein supposedly would have found himself coming back to the city quite a few times during the course of the game.

The videos are available on YouTube, and the artwork from Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun can be found through NeoGAF.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
