The Vanquish demo was released on Playstation Network and Xbox Live today. Vanquish is the brainchild of Resident Evil designer Shinji Mikami. It is also his first game under Platinum games, which is known for both the Okami and Bayonetta series. Vanquish is a high octane action-shooter that has the player control a chain-smoking government agent equipped with a prototype armor that allows him to move extremely fast and enhance his reaction time. Basically, you’re dodging bullets, jumping from cover to cover and slowing down time to better kick your enemy’s butts into next week. The demo’s tutorial actually serves as a prequel to the game, getting gamers read for some crazy action later in October.
