Robots Invade Japan

Sega today announced the next big game from Toshihiro Nagoshi, the celebrated game-producer behind Shenmue, Yakuza, Super Monkey Ball, and many more classic Sega titles. His new game is Binary Domain, a squad-based shooter set in Tokyo in 2080.

Binary Domain pits you and your human peace-keeping squad against a robot invasion force, fighting through the derelict lower levels of futuristic Tokyo. Nagoshi says that despite its focus on mechanical enemies, life is the game’s theme, with a very human drama at its core. It asks the provocative question, “Are the robots becoming more human, or are humans becoming more like machines?”

The game is using a “highly advanced AI” system that Sega claims gives Binary Domain fast-paced, intense battlefields, forcing players to plan movements with caution and strategy. Here are the first screens from the game, and a teaser trailer. No word yet on when the game is expected to arrive, but it’s planned for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
