Take a peek at a day in the life of Nilin, a memory retrieval specialist, as she attempts to recover some sensitive architectural information but ends up scaling buildings, fighting off security teams, and scrapping with bulky brawler Kid Xmas.

Set in a futuristic Paris, "Remember Me" shares some thematic similarities with 2008 title "Mirror's Edge," as players guide an athletic protagonist through a dystopian cityscape.

But where "Mirror's Edge" challenged players to avoid conflict, Nilin is an eager fighter, stringing together combos and special moves. And as this two-minute clip shows, there are nods to not just seminal cyberpunk film "Blade Runner" but also the urban climbing and augmented reality of "Assassin's Creed," with its elevated viewpoints, building-to-building traversal, and conspiratorial overtones.

Due on Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3, "Remember Me" is currently expected to launch in May.
