A taste of Vanquish in a week

A western demo for PlatinumGames’ high-octane shooter Vanquish has been confirmed.

Both Sega of America and Europe announced today that the Shinji Mikami-led TPS can be sampled by both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners in a week’s time (see here for a quick run-through of what to expect); it’ll arrive on North American systems on August 31st, and European ones the following day, on September 1st.

A Japanese demo has been previously confirmed for September 2nd, the same day Australia gets it.

The retail releases will follow in October; North America on the 19th, Europe on the 22nd, and Australia on the 21st.
