Vanquish Demo Set For Early September

Downloadable demo to be different from upcoming Tokyo Game Show demo.


Looking to get your hands on Shinji Mikami and Platinum Games's new PS3 and Xbox 360 action title Vanquish? Your chance will come in just a couple of weeks. Sega is planning to release demo for both platforms on September 2.

Producer Atsushi Inaba revealed plans for the demo on the 21st during an interview session with Gamespot Japan that was conducted at the Akihabara leg of a Vanquish retail demo event.

The demo will be titled "Vanquish Official Demo - Velocity Attack" and will allow players to work through a prologue sequence along with a boss fight against Argos. Players will be able to try out casual and normal difficulty settings, along with the game's auto aim feature (limited just to casual difficulty).

Those planning on attending the Tokyo Game Show starting on the 16th are in for a special treat. Inaba also said that the show's Vanquish demo will be different from the downloadable demo. It will have additional playable areas. He also said to expect a stage that will have an appearance by a surprising character.

Development on Vanquish is already 100% complete, Inaba also revealed to the site. The game is due for release here on October 21.
