New Riddick Trailer Part Of This Complete Space Epic

The latest trailer for Starbreeze's The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena contains everything anyone could ever want in a Vin Diesel-fueled space epic, including mech suits!

And yes, the mech suits look lovely, but they aren't really Riddick, now are they? Riddick is about skulking, stabbing, and interacting with little children, each of which is represented in this "Hunter" trailer for the upcoming game, due out April 7th. I really think the Riddick character shines brightest when there is an innocent for him to play off of, like the Jack character from Pitch Black. Perhaps that's where The Chronicles of Riddick movie failed. Changing Jack into the female bad ass Kyra in the second film stripped Riddick of his innocent side, leaving us with a straight up action film without any real heart to it.

Or maybe I'm putting way too much thought into this. Just nod and enjoy the trailer.
