Sega have just opened up their doors to announce a new game coming from the creator of such games as Yakuza, Toshihiro Nagoshi.
Binary Domain, a squad based shooter, is set in a robot invaded Tokyo in the 2080 where you’ll be taking control of an international based peacekeeping squad that soon starts questioning what is going on and the choices they made. Are the robots becoming more like the humans, or are the humans becoming more like robots?
“What I wanted to create this time was a dramatic and energetic sci-fi shooter. When you hear sci-fi you may think of cold, clinical environments but with Binary Domain I wanted to combine this with a deep human drama” commented Toshihiro Nagoshi. “The keyword we have in mind for this project is “Life”. I wanted to make something that will be accepted by both the Japanese and Western markets and this fundamental theme is something everyone knows, but which the full extent of can be difficult to grasp”
“We are excited and proud to have Toshihiro Nagoshi working on Binary Domain,” commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA of Europe and SEGA of America. “The game is being developed in Japan yet it is designed for a global audience and will take players into an exhilarating story wrapped into a unique, action-packed shooter experience in a fresh new setting.”
At the moment there is no set release date for the game, not even a vague one, but the concept surrounding the game certainly sounds interesting, and in true Japanese style it’s all gung-ho.
