L.A. Noire finally shows off its first trailer

Well here it is folks, at long last we finally have the first footage of the Team Bondi-developed, Rockstar-published L.A. Noire. The outcome? Pure Rockstar; a short trailer that above all else evokes the essence of the genre it’s placed in incredibly well.

L.A. Noire isn’t all guns and action; there’s a good deal of investigating to be done meaning interrogating witnesses, studying crime scenes and yes, a bit of fisticuffs every now and again. The trailer here shows this well with the right mix of dialogue and violence. It also shows off the game engine’s much talked about facial animations which look top notch from what we can tell.

L.A. Noire is posted for a Spring 2011 release on PS3/360.
