Overlord II trailer be bringin' the Minions!

Overlord was one of the coolest games of last year, and the sequel is a matter of months away. To celebrate, here's a fresh new trailer and some screenshots, focusing this time on the most important aspect of the game -- the Minions.

The maniacal vandals are just as adorably vicious as ever, and as you can see from the trailer, they have access to new armor and weapons, including a catapult. They'll also be able to ride mounts this time around, and the video shows the giggling psychopaths helping themselves to a pack of caged wolves. 

Overlord II is looking like more of the same, which isn't a bad thing as I loved the original. The renewed focus on making this second Overlord much more evil than this father is also welcome, and hopefully points to an even better title when it launches on June 26. We'll naturally have a full review as soon as we get a copy, so stay tuned for that.
