If you’ve seen anything relating to once PS3 exclusive Quantum Theory, you’ll probably recall how much it reminded you of Gears of War. Despite the obvious similarities, Tecmo Koei boss Yoshiki Sugiyama has said that their upcoming third-person, cover-based shooter with huge, armoured roid junkie protagonists that bears more than just a passing resemblance to Gears of War is not, in fact, a Gears of War Clone.
"If gamers assume they know what awaits them, if they assume Quantum Theory is going to be just another shooter, they’re going to be surprised," said Sugiyama.
"While the style may share similar traits of a post-apocalyptic world inhabited by hardened warriors it’s the co-operation between our two characters that makes Quantum Theory so unique," he continued.
"The fact you have to physically manipulate this spectacularly acrobatic partner while launching your own assaults makes for an interesting new dynamic – and of course the battle ground is always changing and shifting. There’s a living tower at the heart of this story, a fantastical construction that is never as it seems."
So it’s pretty much a Japanesey Gears of War, with a little Army of Two thrown in? I can’t contain my excitement.
