A downloadable demo for Rise of Nightmares has been released to the Xbox Live Marketplace service on Xbox 360 after long delay. Included is a single night of the game for players to experience if they are unsure of purchasing the title, however they will need the Kinect sensor add-on for the game to function properly. The download is available for Xbox Live Gold subscribers a week ahead of time and for everyone else next week. Interested players can find the download on the “Newest releases” on the Games Marketplace or go to Xbox.com to instantly add the 334 megabyte download to their queue and have it download as soon as their Xbox 360 console signs online.
Released exclusively on Xbox 360 on the 6th of September last year, Rise of Nightmares quickly became a stand-out title for the Kinect peripheral due to it’s nature and content. It was created by veteran SEGA designer Ryuta Ueda (best known for his work on the Panzer Dragoon, Jet Set Radio and Yakuza franchises) and was the first mature-themed title for the Kinect on Xbox 360.
