In our estimation, Heavy Rain is one of the most impressive and important titles of the generation. And developer Quantic Dream has taken it upon themselves to once again take the next step in the realm of interactive drama. What do we call it? Because we're unsure, we're just labeling Beyond: Two Souls as an "Adventure/Drama," even if that isn't 100% accurate. What label would be 100% accurate…?

Anyway, there's no doubt that Beyond turned some heads at Sony's E3 2012 press conference. And here's what we know so far: The main character is Jodie Holmes, a young girl who is, as per the E3 trailer, kinda quiet and perhaps unsurprisingly, awfully deadly. She is accompanied by a spirit partner, known as Aiden or Iden (similarity to Eden coincidental?), which other characters might actually see. The player will follow 15 years of Jodie's life and, presumably, we will continue on into the "beyond" or rather, after her death.
