Vanquish Arrives to Japanese Retailers on October 21

Japan is getting Platinum Games speed crazy action title on October 21, 2010. This is one of most exciting titles in SEGA’s upcoming library but there is no word on the Western release dates.

I wonder how SEGA will choose a date to release it in the West as it is a new IP – if you remember SEGA held back Bayonetta until January to distinguish it from the glut of titles launched in the holiday season.

October 21 is almost out of the shadow of Halo: Reach and the console manufacturers seem interested in pushing motion control devices this Holiday season. This is pure speculation but  hopefully, we will get the game before the year is out.

On April 21, After Burner Climax touches down on XBLA for 800 Microsoft Points ($10 USD, give or take). One day later, it does a fly by on PlayStation Network for exactly $9.99 USD.
