The 2009 E3 trailer was brief, but it showed off the main mechanic of the game. REALISTIC NINJA STYLE SWORD CUTTING ACTON!!!!!!!!! Boy did that stuff look bad-ass. After that, we never really heard much more from it. Until Last night at the VGA's where a new trailer was released, but with a little surprise. During the little credit section of the trailer, it was revealed that the game was being developed by Platinum Games. Makes sense, cause the trailer does have some Bayonetta-esque visuals on the fighting gameplay.
So what does this mean for the game? Platinum's got some great games, Bayonetta, Madworld, and Vanquish, but how comfortable would the fans be having their series handled by a foreign developer? One has to wonder, but clearly Kojima saw this as a necessity. Lets see how this goes.
Btw, the trailer is EPIC!
