Vanquish set for winter debut

New PlatinumGames title will include robots, too

PlatinumGames' Halo-alike has been confirmed for a release this winter on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Director Shinji Mikami let slip that the title should be out in Japan before the end of the year in the latest issue of Famitsu, translated on the NeoGAF forums.

According to Mikami, plenty of robot-battling will form the crux of the gameplay, and most of the action will play out from a third-person perspective.

The director says the new title is now eighty percent complete, and features a plot that sees the US taking on Russia in the future. More on this new blaster as we get it.
