Vanquish Launch Trailer Explodes Into View

Ah, launch trailers. You remind us that there's games out this week and show us some of the best bits from said games, hoping that we might be tempted into parting with our cash. The launch trailer for Vanquish is a text book example, packed with action and explosions, leaving us thinking, "wow. That looks a bit good."

With Resi creator Shinji Mikami heading up development, Vanquish certainly has an unrivalled pedigree and Platinum Games has proven that it's more than capable of delivering a balls-out action title with Bayonetta. If Vanquish is even a fraction of the game that Bayonetta was, we're all in for a treat.

Vanquish is out today in North America, with the game set to launch on October 21st in Japan before jetting into the UK and Europe on October 22nd. Kablammo.

@7 It kind of plays like Lost Planet, too. The boss battles have their bright orange "weak spots" as well.

Really cool trailer, music makes it even more cool. C: Really want this game, but the release date kind of clashes with TFU2, and I rather not rush through a game, so I'll probably wait a bit.

I want this game bad as Im a big fan of 3rd person cover shooters, but reviews are saying its 4 hours long, so I wont be getting it til its down to about £15.
