A date has been set for Vanquish, the next game from Shinji Mikami, famed game designer best known for creating Capcom's Resident Evil and Devil May Cry series. The science fiction shooters drops on October 19, according to a press release issued by Sega of America this afternoon.
Sega also issued details on GameStop pre-order weapons:
- Boost Machine Gun ("an early experimental weapon with impressive overall fire power and the speed to dispense rounds similar to that of a heavy machine gun")
- Anti-Armor Pistol ("fires special penetrative shell and was manufactured to tackle hostile forces with much stronger armor")
- Laser Cannon ("miniaturized space warship laser and is more powerful than any other weapon available for infantry")
Vanquish is being released on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
