Beyond Good & Evil 2 has had a troubled development cycle, having an intriguing E3 2009 teaser, but almost no other information save conflicting reports that the game was either cancelled or that the game was still being worked on.
However, at an invite-only event in Montpelier, VT, series creator Michel Ancel stunned attendees by showing off actual footage from the game, as seen in the off-camera clip below. Ancel also related some stories about the game's development, such as the development team going to India to research the game's look, to give it a distinctive visual style.
The video shows heroine Jade running around a crowded urban area. The original Beyond Good & Evil was released in late 2003 to rave reviews, but poor sales, on PC, Xbox, PlayStation 2 and GameCube. The game was re-released in HD for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this year.
