Miss me, sweetheart?
Ever since its release 10 years ago, there hasn’t been anything quite like Vanquish. The fast-paced, stylish third-person shooter quickly became one of PlatinumGames' most memorable joints thanks to hectic action, impressive boss fights, and a whole lot of knee sliding chaos. It was an experience which went down well with the...
Earth and moon
There’s not much for SEGA to promote when it comes to the impending re-release of Bayonetta and Vanquish on the PlayStation 4, but this video which details the compilation’s new cover art is an interesting watch. In it, the artists discuss how they brought the two franchises together, and the kind of feedback they received from...
Celebrating a decade
Following rumours late last week of a supposed Bayonetta and Vanquish remaster making its way to current-gen consoles, the release has now finally been confirmed for a PlayStation 4 launch with a glitzy reveal trailer. Both games release on 18th February 2020, and physical buyers can snag a steelbook editio
4K and 60FPS enchancements
Update: Wow, if you think the news of a Vanquish remaster which broke just over an hour ago was hype-inducing, then it looks like SEGA is going to do you one better. Bayonetta will be joining Vanquish in a double pack of remasters which includes 4K visuals and 60 frames-per-second enhancements, as reported by True...
Retailer reckons so
Well, this is an exciting, out-of-the-blue rumour: two top PlayStation 3 titles Bayonetta and Vanquish could be coming to the PlayStation 4 this November. The pair of SEGA published Platinum Games products have been listed on website Alza as part of a purported double-pack. Seeing as both games were recently ported to the...
"Get outta the way"
The E3 rumour mill's in maximum operation right now, as evidenced by the fact that new unconfirmed stories are popping up at an increasingly alarming rate. Next on the agenda is a current whisper that Platinum Games will be unveiling a sequel to third-person shooter-action hybrid Vanquish. The PlayStation 3 title was roughly five...
Platinum Games' publishing partnership with SEGA ends with the release of Vanquish today
But Platinum's Atsushi Inaba has told Develop that the studio may extend their partnership with SEGA beyond the four games the duo have released. Yes youre correct, we have made the four titles in our contract, he said when asked about the current deal. The partnership has been great, and we are in..
Never underestimate Shinji Mikami
Reviews for Platinum Games' upcoming three-dimensional sh'mup have gone live, and they're pretty darn favourable. The traditionally harsh Eurogamer has plopped a big-fat 9 on the title, while GameSpot and NowGamer both went for 9 and 9.3 respectively. Videogamer's gone for an 8 and CVG's pucker
Cover-based third-person shooters are getting awfully predictable
But Vanquish, from legendary game designer Shinji Mikami, is anything but predictable. Oh, it's still a cover-based third-person shooter — but it's also ten times more awesome than that. You can drift, you can slow-down time and there are robotic creatures the size of a small planet to fight. Basically it looks absolutely..
Platinum Games are renowned for being, well, a bit amazing
Bayonetta has a huge cult following and the upcoming Vanquish is destined to sell about 4 million copies too few (it looks brilliant). So the thought of them tackling a multiplayer game gets us a bit excited — namely because online multiplayer needs more forward thinking like we're certain to get from Platinum Games. "We haven't..
We might have got a taste for Vanquish's big enemies in the recent PlayStation Network demo, but this trailer tells us we're yet to really see anything
SEGA's released this "enemies" trailer which gives a few hints about what we can expect from the game's boss fights. Namely gigantic creatures big enough to feel several 60-inch televisions piled on top of each other. The best part? You..
In many ways, Vanquish is exactly what you'd expect it to be
It's Japanese developers attempting to create a Western game. And so it feels distinctly like Gears Of War. Character movement is chunky, targeting is smooth and the gun-play is beefy and responsive. But it's also being developed in Japan; so it's all a bit bonkers. For example, your...
If you're in the UK and planning on ordering Platinum Games' speed-shooter, Vanquish, you should probably know that SEGA's giving away some goodies with pre-orders from Amazon
There's a little look at the extras in the trailer above. The game looks fantastic. There's a demo coming next week.
SEGA's confirmed that Vanquish's Velocity Attack demo will hit the PlayStation Network on August 31st for the US and September 1st for Europe
This is the same demo that was confirmed for Japan during the weekend. We're hyped about this game so we can't wait to check out the demo next week. Hopefully it'll get some buzz flowing around the game ahead...
Vanquish producer, Atsushi Inaba, has revealed that Platinum Games plan to release a demo for their third-person action game on September 2nd
The date was dropped in an interview with GameSpot Japan. According to Inaba, the demo will be called "Velocity Attack" and will feature a prologue sequence aswell as a boss fight with Argos — no,...
If Japanese developers have to start appealing to Western tastes, we hope they take a leaf out of Vanquish's book
While the game appeals to the shooter culture this current generation has bred, it still looks and feels distinctly Japanese. The voice acting and dialogue is horrendous, the gameplay is fast-paced and ostentatious, and the environments have that pseudo-futuristic anime vibe to them..
Similarly to Bayonetta's automatic mode, Platinum Games has confirmed that their upcoming shooter, Vanquish, is set to benefit from a "Casual Auto" mode -- which will presumably make the game really easy
Director Shinji Mikami said of the mode on Platinum's blog, Before we started work on it, I cant say that I had high hopes; however, once we got it up and running, I was pleasantly surprised..
Vanquish director, Shinji Mikami, has revealed that his upcoming action shooter was once envisioned as a more "open" game
However, in a long blog on Platinum's website, Mikami's revealed that the game quickly took on a more linear direction. Vanquish was originally an open battlefield type of game, said Mikami, where the goal was to move around crushing enemy positions; however, once we..
Completing the set of Vanquish release date announacements, SEGA's confirmed that the Shinji Mikami produced shooter will hit North America on October 19th
If you pre-order the game at GameStop, you'll get exclusive access to the three guns announced alongside the European version of the game.
SEGA's confirmed that Shinji Mikami's space-shooter, Vanquish, will hit European PlayStation 3s on October 22nd
That's just a day after Japan gets the game. In addition, SEGA's confirmed that certain retailers will be giving out exclusive weapons access to anyone who pre-orders the game. The press release notes:"The Tri-Weapon pack contains a small arsenal of experimental technology, made up..
Vanquish is the next game by industry veteran Shinji Mikami
It looks bonkers. It also looks rad. The game's due out on October 21st in Japan. Apparently a European date is on the way. We're looking forward to it. Of all the mountains of shooters planned for this year (and there are lots of them), Vanquish looks to be the most "different" of them. Well, at least we hope so. You better hope..
Shinji Mikami's Vanquish looks like a Dreamcast launch title
Re-read that statement and then watch the trailer. There's something about the physics, art-direction and even overlying concept that feels very SEGA. It looks awesome too. We're not too interested in the story and stupid voice-acting — but the dude can boost into cover. It's like a third-person shooter crossed with Burnout..
Geoff Keighley's doing it again - he's pulling the big exclusive reveals
And this week he's got THQ's anticipated Red Faction sequel to reveal. The show airs in the US tomorrow night, so expect the trailer sometime on Saturday. Interestingly, the next GTTV will also have debut gameplay footage of Crysis 2 and FEAR 3, aswell as some more from Platinum's Vanquish. Killer episode then, Keighley?
Famitsu's got a huge blow-out on Platinum Games' Vanquish this week, and AndriaSang
com's</a> got your back with all the meaty details. The third-person shooter, being developed by Mr. Resident Evil Shinji Mikami, begins in space on a cylindrical colony known as Providence. This colony is America's 51st state, and has been created in order to gather solar energy. The energy is converted into..
Platinum Games and Shinji Mikami's latest title, Vanquish, will release this year (in Japan at least)
The game's been announced for release on the Playstation 3 in this week's Famitsu. Mikami's revealed that the game is 80 percent finished and, contrary to popular belief, is a third-person shooter. We posted the debut trailer a few weeks back.
As teased by host GTTV Geoff Keighley, Platinum Games have indeed revealed their new game as part of the show
It's called Vanquish and it looks like Halo. Bet your bottom dollar bill it's a cover-based shooter. Resident Evil-man Shinji Mikami is on board for this game. Despite a high-octane trailer, we're most certainly not impressed. The audio's cool we 'spose. <object id="gtembed"..
