Diabolical Pitch footage lurches out of TGS

By Jessica Citizen, Thursday, 15 September 2011 08:10 GMT

One of the more obscure highlights of Tokyo Game Show so far has been the big reveal Diabolical Pitch, formerly known as Codename D. Take Japanese favourite Suda51 and the team at Grasshopper Manufacture, throw in some motion controls, a baseball bat and some scary monsters, and you’re onto a winner.

While we haven’t yet had a chance to try out the upcoming XBLA title, the sneaky folk over at Joystiq smuggled a video camera in and grabbed some more footage of the game in action, plus a shaky-cam version of the first trailer.
