5th Cell will be releasing its first 3D console game on Xbox Live Arcade this summer, having pushed back the game to give it extra polishing. A new trailer went out today, which you can view above.

Based on feedback from early players, 5th Cell has redesigned Hybrid to feature a new look for characters, environments and the user interface. It's also overhauled its "flight-centric combat focused movement," as well as customization options, which are said to be "deep" and "on the fly." In addition, the game will now be locked at 60fps in 720p.

I've been a big fan of 5th Cell ever since Lock's Quest, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they handle a more "normal" game. Hopefully it's a good'un!
