Today 2K has revealed that Vito Scaletta, the protagonist from Mafia II, will return to the Mafia series in its latest entry. The reveal trailer shows Vito as a battle tested veteran who has been betrayed by the Italian mafia and took up a spot with Lincoln Clay’s family as a lieutenant. Will Vito seek revenge on those who wronged him? Will Vito’s loyalty to his new family and Clay himself be tested? I, for one, am ecstatic about Mafia III‘s take on the classic mobster revenge tale and I found Vito to be a fairly likable guy through the course of Mafia II, so I’m happy to see him make a return.
We were also given a good sample of gameplay footage in another new trailer that outlines the districts in Mafia III‘s city, New Bordeaux. In this footage we not only get to see the diversity of the city in each district, but we also see Lincoln Clay being an absolutely brutal mobster with some satisfying weapon and fight mechanics. I mean, did you see those knife shots at 2:45? Absolutely sick.
That one’s gonna need a few stitches
