Vanquish Screenshots Are In

Platinum Games' Vanquish is looking mighty chaotic, packed with so many bullets and missiles all over the place that it's difficult to see what exactly is going on. Luckily, the game's hero looks pretty darn athletic, despite being dressed from head to toe in battle armour, he's still able to jump and knee slide like a gun-toting gymnast if these shots are any indication.
Bayonetta meets Gears of War might not be too far off the mark then, as these screens and the first gameplay trailer show. Blending frenetic third-person gunplay, bullet hell and acrobatics looks and sounds pretty good to us. Now we just need to find out how the thing plays.
Being from the mind of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami surely won't hurt the game's chances in achieving good, solid gameplay though and from this early showing, we'd say that initial signs look rather promising.
