All Articles: Army Corps of Hell
Sony has pushed out another Vita-centric update for the PlayStation Store, adding Touch My Katamari, Plants vs Zombies, Army Corps of Hell, Dynasty Warriors Next, and many, many more. A trio of free Augmented Reality titles were also added to the store. So if you’ve got a Vita, I recommend checking them out.
On the PS3 side of things, Sony has added two Full PS3 Games: 2K Czech’s Mafia II and Starkiller’s second adventure, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
Square Enix’s Army Corps of Hell was one of the biggest surprises to come out of this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The megapublisher would only confirm a Japanese release during show (obviously), but today they’ve revealed it’ll also be available for the Vita’s US launch next year.
Taking control of a massive army of goblins to win back Hell, players will make entensive use of the Vita’s rear touch pad to unleash hell on their enemies:
Defeated in battle, the King of Hell is stripped of his powers and banished from his throne. Burned to a meager corpse, the dethroned king uses the last of his strength to take command of a corps of weak-minded goblins. He commands this ragtag army of bloodthirsty goblins as he fights through hell to reclaim his throne, destroying his enemies and looting their corpses for equipment along the way.
Army Corps of Hell will also include a local co-op mode that promises bigger bosses and bigger loot. Awesome! Now we just have to narrow down when the Vita’s North American launch actually is.
Square Enix’s upcoming Vita game, Army Corps of Hell, seems to be an unholy marriage of Pikmin and countless dark forces from the deepest parts of the underworld. In the game’s Tokyo Game Show trailer, we are treated with some gameplay, music by a Japanese metal band called United, and more than a few instances of censored objects onscreen.
Prepare your senses and click up top to view the trailer. No release date has been given yet, but I’m willing to bet that the pre-order bonus will be a sacrificial goat.
Square Enix has launched a new teaser website in anticipation of this month’s Tokyo Game Show. The site, which bears the header A Brand New Title of Hell, offers players two columns of words. The columns include a variety of themed pairs such as “Boy or Girl,” “Light or Shadow” and “Angel or Devil.”
After entering the correct answer, “Die or Die,” the stone wall in the background slides apart to reveal a pack of miniature devils. Destroying the devils reveals the happy little fellow to your left. Looks a little bit like Skeletor. Or perhaps Shao Kahn.
It’s unlikely that skullface up there is either of those characters. Instead, he probably belongs to the Army Corps of Hell, a title that was trademarked by Square Enix last year.
We’ll probably find out more at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, which begins on September 15.
