Vanquish

Resident Evil father, Shinji Mikami, will be adding his own title to Platinum Games’ quickly growing lineup with Vanquish whose trailer was officially shown today.

The trailer actually says little about what the gameplay will be like, but it leads in with live action and a heavy dose of CG effects to set it up as a yarn about one man’s fight to stop an attack against the United States (as opposed from within thanks to a duplicitous Vice President in a giant mech). Cue in colossal space station with a sci-fi army backed by beam weapons from the sky, and you’ve got something that’s a far cry from fighting tentacle-headed corpses and collecting herbs.

Or maybe Mikami is just as tired of zombies as I am.
