SouthPeak Games has announced that Dementium II will be released in North America on February 16, 2010 and in Europe on March 5, 2010. I gotta say after playing the first one on my DS I am not looking forward to this one. Not because it’s bad but because it’s creepy!

Here’s a summary of Dementium II from SouthPeak Games:

“Dementium II continues to push the horror experience by melding FPS action and puzzles with a story and ambience that will have players on the edge of their seats.

I can’t wait to see what rating this game is going to get.
