Are you excited yet about Vanquish, the third-person shoot 'em up from Bayonetta and Madworld studio Platinum Games? Did we mention it's from the guy who made God Hand? And did you see these new screen shots?
Game director Shinji Mikami's latest may feature familiar shooting action—with, apparently, a Bayonetta style "Witch Time"-like time-slowing effect dubbed "Augmented Reality Mode"—and super-suit attired soldier Sam, but Vanquish looks like a higher-speed take on your standard action game. A look at these new Vanquish screens shows off big bosses, bad-ass futuristic knee slides and developer Platinum's expertise with PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 hardware.
Vanquish is supposed to be out in 2010—at least in Japan.
