Vanquish Will Most Certainly have Guns

February 22, 2010 Written by Thomas Williams

PlatinumGame’s Vanquish was revealed last month to be the next project that Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil series, is working on. Only one problem. Details regarding what genre the game are yet to be revealed. Good news! It seems someone might have let the cat out of the bag.

What you’re about to read seems a little bit like deja vu’. PlayStation LifeStyle reported about the “Very Special” shooter that OPM teased in their latest podcast, which has turned out to be a new FPS from the Creator of the  PS2/Xbox FPS, BLACK. When Tim Clark, Editor at OPM teased about that new FPS, he also dropped a hint about Vanquish while doing so.

Next time we’ll be talking shooters with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Vanquish and another very special game yet to be announced.

So it seems this new title is in fact a Shooter, but not specifically a First-Person Shooter or Third-Person Shooter. The last original IP Mr. Makami worked on that was also third-person, P.N.03, it bombed both critically and commercially. So it will be interesting to see what the creator of the Resident Evil series comes up with.

If you missed the first Vanquish trailer last month, then check out all of its glory here.
