We are just over a week away from Platinum Game’s next release, Vanquish, on October 19, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Sega has released a new trailer that demonstrates some of the firepower that is accessible in the game, which is shown below.
For those that don’t know, Vanquish is a 3rd person shooter that has often been described by numerous outlets as “Gears of War on speed”. After spending a decent amount of time with the demo of the game, I can assure you that is a very accurate description. The game is also likely to draw some comparisons to Platinum Games’ / Sega’s Bayonetta from earlier this year as well. The two games play out in a similar fashion in terms of the intense action and time-slowing mechanics involved in the game. If you want to check it out for yourself, a demo for the game is currently available on both the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network.
