Sega’s just announced Binary Domain, the new robot shooter from Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi that was revealed in Famitsu at the start of the week.
The game takes place in 2080 in Tokyo during a conflict between humans and robots, where the city has been split into two: rich and poor, the latter of which represents what the city looks like now with more destruction.
“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,” Nagoshi said on the game.
“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.”
The AI for the game will be a massive focus for Binary Domain, with Sega saying it’ll “make the battlefield a more compelling experience than ever before.”
No date yet. It’ll release on PS3 and 360.
