Voodoo Extreme New Mechwarrior Game Teaser »


 

Hideo Kojima should be very nervous right about now, because a new, very promising, contender for "Most ridiculous game teaser ever" has just moseyed into town. The latest entry (allegedly) comes via developer Piranha Games, and according to Voodoo Extreme, the nine-second video, which simply shows a giant mech-foot stepping into frame before fading to black, is the teaser for a new MechWarrior game.

It's been nine years since the last MechWarrior game, and in 2007, Microsoft closed FASA Corp. (creators of the MechWarrior franchise). FASA's IP rights were then acquired by publisher Smith and Tinker founder, and ex-FASA executive, Jordan Weisman. At the time, as GameSpot reported, Weisman promised to "surprise and delight old fans, while welcoming new fans into these fantastic worlds." Since then, there's been very little to speak of on the gaming front from the company.

However, in light of this new video "evidence," and considering Piranha Games recently co-developed Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, it seems now's as good a time as any to revive the popular mech franchise. I reached out to Piranha Games, and Smith and Tinker for comment, but I have yet to hear back at the time of this writing.

In the mean time - New alleged MechWarrior video: Great teaser, or greatest teaser?
