Director Shinji Mikami revealed the details in Famitsu's latest issue. Gamers will shoot robots in a war between the US and Russia.
Many believed that Vanquish was in fact a first-person shooter but Mikami-san dismissed that, affirming it's third-person. It's all sci-fi and has the player in a suit not unlike Halo's Master Chief, which is all the rage naturally in the future whatever the universe.
No humans will be your targets it seems in Vanquish, only robots in the futuristic ruckus between the U.S. and Russia. It's over 80 percent complete with a demo planned. Check out the reveal trailer below, which Platinum aired last month.
Vanquish is releasing on Xbox 360 and PS3 this year in Japan.
