E3: Go undercover in this Sleeping Dogs trailer

11:35 AM on 06.05.2012 // Samit Sarkar

I'm really glad that Square Enix picked up United Front Games' Sleeping Dogs after Activision dropped the project (back when it was called True Crime: Hong Kong). Hamza's write-up of the hard-boiled open-world crime thriller made it sound impressive, and this trailer contains enough familiar genre tropes -- including a bit of the ol' Triad ultraviolence -- to get my blood flowing.

Hopefully not out of my body, though, since that looks pretty unpleasant when it's happening to protagonist Wei Shen at the start of the trailer.

Sleeping Dogs is due out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on August 14, 2012.
