First Vanquish screenshots released

Lets be honest, you can’t see anything on those blurry screenshots released in the Famitsu magazine; so the boys at Platinum Games have decided to release screens for the game.

I got to be honest, this game looks a ton better than Lost Planet, color me interested; especially after seeing it will have fast combat. To see the rest of the shots and description of the game, hit the jump!

English Description of the game:

In a near-future world where Russia and the United States vie for ownership of the world’s fast-depleting energy resources, the US has constructed a space station in order to harness energy from the sun. Russian forces capture this space station and divert its harvested solar energy into a blast wave that destroys San Francisco, aiming to force the US into a total and unconditional surrender. In response, the US tasks its armed forces with recapturing the space station before the Russians can annihilate their next target – New York.

• Directed by Shinji Mikami, the creator of the Resident Evil series, VANQUISH™ is a sci-fi shooter that sees players take the role of Sam, a government agent kitted out with a futuristic battle suit. A versatile fighter with a huge arsenal of weaponry at his disposal, Sam also has an array of martial arts skills that he can use to take down his robot enemies.

• Fast, fluid and frenetic – this is gaming at its most explosive and exciting, as you storm into battle.

• Experience a game character like no other – Sam is the ultimate weapon, donning a futuristic battle suit of destructive firepower and superhuman speed and agility.

• Fight your way through the enormous, open environments of the space station. The most advanced, futuristic city in the skies becomes home to the action.

    Count me in! That looks lovely!

    Sega have long needed a good 3rd person shooter series as well as a first person shooter…

    At least it looks like ONE of them is coming.
