Sega has dropped one bombshell of a tease in its announcement of their new squad-based shooter, Binary Domain. There's a whole mess of combat with a group of three humans that's pretty stereotypical for the first two-thirds of this video. But then things take a very sharp, awesome turn. I strongly encourage you to watch it before reading any further, lest your enjoyment be spoiled.
Binary Domain is the creation of Toshihiro Nagoshi, also responsible for the Yakuza series, and is being developed by Sega Japan for worldwide release on PS3 and Xbox 360. The story is set in Tokyo circa 2080, which has been invaded by robots at some point and looks to be toying with some very cool thematic stuff. I'm ready to know more, Sega. Lay it on us.
