Sega has revealed Vanquish’s development is being led on PlayStation 3.

The news came at a press event last week in Tokyo for the Platinum third-person shooter, directed by Resident Evil  creator Shinji Mikami.

The developer is doing both SKUs in-house, which is in stark contrast compared to Bayonetta: the 360 version was done at the studio, while Sega did port work for the title on PS3.

“We’re leading development on PS3,” said Mikami. “Obviously each console has its own unique requirements and limitations, but we feel if we can create a good enough presentation on PS3, we’ll be off to a good start.”

He also revealed that development started out on PC, although when asked if it was coming to that platform, Mikami said PS3 and 360 were “the main idea right now”.

The first screens and story information were released this morning. The game was announced last month with a debut CG trailer.

The game’s due out this winter, in Japan at least, for PS3 and 360.
