It appears as if the delays are finally over for Namco Bandai’s Inversion
. The upcoming PC / 360 / PS3 shooter has been given an updated release date of June 5, 2012 for both consoles and the PC.
Inversion takes the third-person shooter genre and turns it on its side, literally. Guns aren’t the only thing in your arsenal; you have the the forces of gravity at your fingertips as well. You will be able to use those forces to create your own cover, use enemies as projectiles, and even navigate through the world in zero-gravity. In addition to the main title, Namco Bandai will also be releasing an Android and iOS title called the INVERSION Project which will serve as an introduction to concept and world of Inversion.
As crazy as it sounds, this concept could just work in the genre. We can’t wait to see how this turns out when it launches this June.
