Vanquish – First Details, Courtesy of Famitsu

1 min read


Remember that trailer for Vanquish we posted at the end of January? We finally have some more details on the next title from Platinum Games, the crazies behind Bayonetta – and Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series.

The latest issue of Famitsu has all the details, including platforms – and as surmised it’ll be appearing on the 360 and Ps3. also confirmed that – contrary to belief the game is actually a third-person shooter, not first, saying you will shoot robots in the game, and not humans. so not a Halo clone, then.

Translated from Famitsu :

• Vanquish is PS3/360, it’s confirmed. It’s due to be out by Winter 2010.

• Mikami says that while it is a third person shooter, it is not a “normal” shooter. It will emphasize speed and fast paced action, and you will also be shooting robots instead of humans.

• The game setting is a near-future war between US and Russia. By setting it in the future, Mikami can use robots and high tech stuff to make the game more interesting. He says the reason why the enemies are all robots is because he wants to allow players who do not like shooting other humans to be able to play and appreciate the gameplay in shooters as well.

• The mech suit features a high speed booster which allows you to very quickly boost next to enemies to pull off close range attacks. There are a large variety of close range attacks moves in the game.

• There is a balance between using cover and using the boost, but it is definitely not a pure cover shooter

• You do not pick up and change weapons in the game, instead your weaponry is part of the suit and it all transforms in realtime into different sorts of weapons.

• The game is about 80% complete, and they’re working on refining the AI for both allies and enemies at the moment. There is a demo planned.
