In Shu, saving villagers gives you more than just warm, fuzzy feelings. Villagers boast unique abilities, which you'll be able to harness if you spare the time to lead them from danger. You'll need to convince them to tag along quickly though, because if the incessant storm reaches you, it'll snatch your companions one by one. You don't want to lose your adorable fellow villagers and, on a definitely-less-important note, the abilities that you can only borrow in their presence, right?
Shu was originally conceived by Secret Lunch, but has since turned into a collaboration with Coatsink Software. Shu is planned to reach PlayStation platforms in mid-2015, but you can get a better sense of what you'll be running from right now in the trailer after the break.
