First Screens Of Vanquish, Platinum Games New Shooter

Sega and Platinum Games have released first screens of their upcoming third-person shooter Vanquish, the new action title from Resident Evil and God Hand director Shinji Mikami.

The "speedy" shooter—as clearly evidenced by the employ of motion blur—with a "high-tension battle system" is bound for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this year, pegged for a winter release, at least in Japan. Vanquish has just about everything you'd need from a current generation shooter: bad-ass armour, big guns and plenty of sparks. Throw in some fast paced melee combat and you might have another great action game from Platinum.

Our first in-game look at Vanquish is much more action-oriented than the original debut trailer, a mix of live action and CG.



    Looks like a more tech filled Lost planet.

      Hopefully it doesn't play like Lost Planet.

      Bayonetta was (to my incredible surprise and chagrin) really very good, so with any luck this will be too. Hopefully a little lighter on the cheese though.

    Looks slightly generic, but good at the same time... looks like Halo meets, I dunno, Mass Effect?

    I'll keep an eye on it.

    looks kinda like halo but with the ability to rocket ahead and BAM! the crap out of enemies.

    Looks cool, but i still wont get hyped for it yet.

    Looks fairly generic from these shots. The boost attack looks kinda cool, but I'm tired of hiding behind cover and popping out to shoot.
