As part of Suda51’s plan to take over the world, his company Grasshopper Manufacture has been producing games that range from Insane (No More Heroes) to even more Insane (Killer7). His most notable new project is Shadows of the DAMNED! Which stars Garcia Hotspur who travels through hell to battle the forces of darkness to save his loved one (How romantic). Either way, A large batch of screenshots were released for the game most notably a giant blood monster displayed as a boss and proof that exploding barrels always mak an FPS more fun. The full bunch of screenshots can be found here.
Shinji Mikami is the creator of the hugely successful Resident Evil franchise but he has just revealed that he’s keeping his distance from Resident Evil 6.
Mikami is currently at Platinum Games working on putting the finishing touches to SEGA’s sci-fi action title: Vanquish. At Tokyo Game Show this week, the developer told us that no matter how good or bad Resident Evil 6 ends up being, he will still be frustrated by it.
“At the moment I’m nothing to do with that title, and don’t know what’s going on with it,” Mikami explained. “I haven’t heard any voices from users, so I can’t really comment on that. I’m trying not to actively seek out any information about that title, because even if it comes out a good game, there will always be some moments where I think ‘oh, I would have done that differently – I would have done this bit better’. Good or bad it will be frustrating either way. So I’m trying to shut myself down from that project.”
Resident Evil 6 was heavily rumoured to be one of Capcom’s biggest announcements at TGS but at the publisher’s press conference earlier this week there was no sign of it.
Today SEGA announced that North America and Europe will be seeing Vanquish released this Winter on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms. This falls in line with the Japanese release date which is also set for Winter as well.
While we haven’t seen any in-game footage of the title yet, many video game press sites got to take a look at the title. Many of them described the game as a crazy over the top fast paced third person shooter. Gamepro in specific said, “It looks like God Hand with a gun.”
In my book, Vanquish resembling God Hand is nothing but a good sign.
Platinum Games announced on Game Trailer’s TV that they have a new title called Vanquish in the works that is being headed by Resident Evil creator, Shinji Mikami.
As of right now no platform has been announced, but it looks to be leaning towards a Xbox 360 and/or PlayStation 3 game. From the trailer it looks like its some sort shooter involving an attack on the United States where you play as a guy who sort of looks like a Master Chief knock off in white armor.
