BIG EYES: Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, American McGee's latest twisted tale.

American McGee's latest game is an isometric action role-playing adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood wherein the heroine battles demons in feudal Japan.

The game, Akaneiro: Demon Hunters, is in development at McGee's Spicy Horse Games studio.

"Akaneiro is the latest 'twisted tale' from the team that brought you Alice: Madness Returns," reads the official site.

"Set in turn of the century Japan, the game finds a battle-hardened 'Red' fighting demons, wolves and mythical monsters."

Beta signups have begun for the hand-painted title, and it is due to be released later this year on mobile and online platforms.
