Square Enix of Europe has announced a brand new game today, a shooter in fact, a sprint shooter, complete with cartoon graphics, sociopaths and giant rabbit heads. The game is named Gun Loco and is a third person shooter that's big on parkour elements like running, vaulting, jumping and ducking - think Mirror's Edge but with crazier characters.
"GUN LOCO's comic characterisation and furious gameplay is a fantastic take on the third-person shooter and offers the kind of unique twist that only Square Enix can provide," said Sarah Hoeksma, VP Brand PAL region. "The action is relentless, the characters unforgettable and the black comedy a perfect fit."
The game takes place on a remote "prison planet" where only the most criminally insane inmates are sent. There are no guards, there are no rules. It's just you, your gun and everyone else fighting for their survival and possible escape. Sounds like wicked fun.
Gun Loco is an exclusive title for the Xbox 360 and will be released some time in 2011.
