New Vanquish Trailer is a Blur of Gunfights and Mech Punching

Platinum Games, the same people behind the sleeper-hit Bayonetta, are coming at us again with a new game to be released later this year called Vanquish. I’m not sure if we’ve ever mentioned this game before, but the basic premise is you’re a man in a super suit sent to fight Russians in space. I’m pretty sure the McGuffin of the game will be an EMP device because that’s how things seem to be going these days. A new trailer came online recently, and it does a great job of showcasing the game’s frenetic cover-to-close-quarters combat. The game seems to play like a cross between Gears of War and Devil May Cry, so if that piques your interest, give the trailer a watch.

One thing’s for sure, Steve Blum must be very tired after recording every single male voice in the game. What do you guys think? Does this look like your kind of game? Let us know in the comments.

  1. I’m going to be guilty of pre-ordering it. Looks good, though it looks like it has a much faster pace than Gears of War, (though I do see something resembling the SilverBack). This is the game where you can you speed boosts to slide under cover, right.

  2. The extreme over the topness of Bayonetta has definitely turned me away from this title, there are much bigger games to play this year.

    I wouldn’t judge this game from their previous title.

    I thought Bayonetta was very meh based on the demo, as well.

    But to prejudge this game based on earlier work doesn’t seem fair.

    After all, James Cameron started his career directing Piranha 2.

    An open mind is all I ask for.

    And open…well, nevermind.
