Disney’s upcoming animated flick, Wreck-It Ralph, has the potential to be awesome. We’ve already seen how it nails its many gaming influences and the story looks like it will be heart-warmingly retro in all the right ways. Seems like the creators have kicked a goal with the promotion too, with this “trailer” for one of the movie’s fictional games, Hero’s Duty, serving as an excellent advert.
The hat-tips are numerous — Gears of War, Starcraft: Ghost, Halo, Metroid Prime, Mass Effect, Call of Duty, (for the name, mostly) and probably a few others. Dubstep fans might recognise the backing music as the work of Skrillex.
If the film is half as good as this trailer, we’re in for something special.
