has released the official 3D Dot Game Heroes PS3 trailer today!
To quote: 3D Dot Game Heroes, the PlayStation 3 exclusive that promises to inject retro-saccharin goodness directly into your corneas (those are part of your eyes, whippersnappers), has a full video trailer... And here it is!
So why should you be excited? Aside from the retro 3D visuals, ear-gratifying musical score, and extremely addicting, nostalgic action-adventure gameplay, you mean? Well... BECAUSE IT HAS TRAILER MUSIC!
Did you hear it? Like, the part with the chorus singing in the background? Who cares if the game is awesome (it is, by the way) when you have trailer music with voices chanting in the background!?
Oh, and to address a couple comments that have been popping up in posts relating to 3D Dot Game Heroes:
The huge swords evident in some screens/videos do NOT break the game. It is not a design flaw. You're only that big when you're at FULL health (intuitive, right?), and you'll rarely be at full health for long stretches of time.
Moreover, only near the end of the game will you have a sword THAT large, not to mention one with the ability to penetrate geometry (i.e. trees, rocks, etc). Many of the swords cannot and will not swing out all the way in those situations, making size... well... irrelevant.
Ask anyone who's played the game: it's not about how big it is, it's about... oh, nevermind. The game DOES look amazing in person; you'll just have to trust us on this. Even videos often fail to do the game justice.
There is no multiplayer component to the game. We're not currently planning any pre-order bonus items. We view the super cool $39.99 price point as a rather nice bonus.
The game has a number of significant improvements over the original Japanese version, including an OPTIONAL HDD install (approximately 1.2gb in size) to reduce/eliminate load times, dozens of new, North American-exclusive load screens that parody popular game box art, and more!
Thanks for watching the trailer, and 3D Dot Game Heroes is coming to PlayStation 3 on May 11, 2010 with an MSRP of only $39.99!
