New Y2K trailer features vinyl records, cat throwing

We've been following the production of Ackk Studios' new EarthBound-inspired game for some time now. Today, it got a new trailer and a new name: Y2K: A Post-Modern RPG.

We get to see quite a bit of gameplay in this trailer, with turn-based combat, puzzle-solving, and exploration segments. Not to mention all the wonderful modern quirkiness, as the main character runs through record stores, pizza shops, and crazy psychedelic landscapes while wielding vinyl records, throwing cats to hit levers, and dropping pandas to activate switches. It's shaping up to be quite a unique adventure!

There's no solid release date just yet, but it's planned to launch late this year on Wii U, PS4, PS Vita, PC, Mac, and Linux.
