The Magic Box has posted some cool looking new movies for Nebula: Echo Night and Kuon (“Nine Grudges”).

Kuon looks like it will be quite a different take on survival horror: the game is apparently set feudal Japan, and the entire presentation gives one a sense of pre-Meji era spookiness. Nebula: Echo Night also looks like a break from tradition, with a storyline apparently set on a moon base in the close future. The movie reminded me of Magnetic Rose from Katsuhiro Otomo’s Memories comic/movie.

Nebula: Echo Night is scheduled for release in Japan “on Winter,” while Kuon is set to come out in the Spring of 2004.
