Ubisoft Reveal 'Outland' And It's Not What We Were Expecting

We thought Ubisoft's Outland on the XBLA might be a tie-in with the 1981 Sean Connery sci-fi movie of the same name or something to do with the satirical comic strip, but it turns out that Outland is an entirely new IP. A stylish, 2D scrolling platformer to be exact.
Like a brightly coloured Limbo, with a big sword, lots of hacking, slashing and jumping around - so nothing like Limbo then - Outland looks fast, frenetic and brilliantly stylised. So, while it's not quite what we were expecting, we think Outland looks pretty nice nonetheless.
Take a look at the trailer, and watch Outland's sword-wielding hero in action. Outland is due to hit the Xbox Live Arcade in 2011.
