NeverDead: The Kotaku Review

At E3 in June, I watched Konami's Shinta Nojiri play NeverDead and struggle to reassemble his dismembered, immortal hero just to dispatch what looked like the game's run-of-the-mill enemies. These people have a real problem on their hands, I thought to myself, if they think that's anyone's idea of fun. » 2/09/12 8:00pm 2/09/12 8:00pm

Game Critics Tear NeverDead Limb-From-Limb

Great games often spring from a single brilliant idea, like a protagonist that can pull himself back together after being blown apart. Unfortunately this is also the case for many really crappy games. Where does NeverDead's mangled pile of people parts fall? » 1/31/12 4:00pm 1/31/12 4:00pm

It's Time to Figure Out If You Give a Damn About Neverdead

The unkillable Bryce Boltzmann comes to life on January 31 in Konami's Neverdead. Should you care? Megadeth hopes so. Owen Good didn't seem to think so. Perhaps a new batch of screens will help? » 1/12/12 8:30am 1/12/12 8:30am

Konami’s NeverDead Will Start Its Eternal Life on January 31, 2012

Being immortal's what you make of it. Sure, watching all your friends die and learning how to work new TV remotes every decade or so aren't happy endeavors. But, Bryce Boltzmann's decided to use his unkillability for fun and profit. » 12/01/11 3:40pm 12/01/11 3:40pm

Limbs Are Optional in New NeverDead Screens


We here at Kotaku love the idea behind NeverDead—we're not the type of folks who let something as petty as a severed head get in our way, and we don't think you are either. If that's the case, this game may be just the thing you're looking for this year. Take a look at these new screens but please don't try any of… » 8/18/11 1:30pm 8/18/11 1:30pm

The Undying Video Game Art of Toshiaki Takayama

Depending on your gaming tastes, you may not have seen much of the work of Toshiaki Takayama. Which is a shame, because his work is incredible. » 7/07/11 7:00am 7/07/11 7:00am

There’s Not Much Reason to Live in NeverDead

In video games, death is anything but final. We've been playing games with some form of immortality or reincarnation for decades, whether that's gamesaves, extra men, whatever. NeverDead enforces the concept in gameplay itself. No matter what grisly mishap befalls your hero, he will not die. » 6/16/11 6:00pm 6/16/11 6:00pm

NeverDead Preview: Amputation Amplified

Describing Konami's new action-horror shoot 'em up NeverDead is something of a challenge for producer and game designer Shinta Nojiri. It's a game that might require some re-education, due to its rather unique gameplay system. » 9/20/10 5:40pm 9/20/10 5:40pm

Another Look At NeverDead

Hey. It's been a while. Let's check in with NeverDead, the shoot 'em up that's chock full of self-inflicted dismemberment and decapitation. I think Konami's shoot-and-slice fest is looking rather promising. What do you think? » 9/17/10 12:00pm 9/17/10 12:00pm

New NeverDead Trailer Adds Some Laughs To Tokyo Game Show

It may be a twin gun shooter featuring a quirky, scruffy hero battling hordes of demons, but there's something novel—something endearing—about Konami's NeverDead. It must be the immortal hero's frequent loss of limbs and head. » 9/16/10 5:40pm 9/16/10 5:40pm

Step Aside! New NeverDead Screens Comin' Through!
