We're only a handful of weeks away from the PlayStation Vita launch, and one of the most unique looking co-op titles for the system is Army Corps of Hell. The game is being published by Square-Enix and looks a bit similar to the Overlord games we've seen before. In it you'll control hordes of goblins as you conquer monsters and other baddies all while thrashing to heavy metal music. That last part I may have just made up, but after watching the latest trailer, I can't see it done any other way.
A snapshot of a retail pamphlet lists a plethora of titles that are planned to be released on the Playstation Vita in the USA. Two co-op games that we are excited about are listed; Army Corps of Hell and Monster Hunter Portable 3.
This new video for Army Corps of Hell is a head scratcher. It starts off with some Diablo-esque visuals, then it cues up the death metal, quick cuts, and cartoons. This video is an assault on the senses. I can't really tell what's going on, but it looks like there is an Overlord/Pikmin mechanic at play, and I think the bosses look cool. It winds down with some minor dismemberment, a little decapitation, and an abundance of blood. Once you recover from your initial state of "WTF," let us know what you think.
The PlayStation Vita may be a ways off for US consumers, but we can still get excited about potential co-op games. Army Corps of Hell was just announced at the Tokyo Game Show. It will launch with the new handheld on December 17th in Japan. Aside from having a very cool title, the game has been reported to support four player co-op. According to Andriasang.com, "you play as a king of demons and must command an army of 100 goblins in the many floating islands that make up hell." Sounds kind of like Overlord, but on an island paradise. An island paradise - in HELL! Mwa-ha-ha.
