Bastion Launch Trailer Released


Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Supergiant Games have today released a lovely little launch trailer for their upcoming action RPG, Bastion, which is set to kick the Xbox LIVE Summer of Arcade off in style when it launches on July 20th.

The trailer shows off the games gorgeous hand-painted 2D visuals as well as the innovative narration system, which made it one of the standout downloadable titles at E3 2011.

If you’re unfamiliar with Bastion, we suggest reading the information from the press release below and then checking out the trailer for yourself. We’re sure you’ll be just as impressed as we were.

In Bastion, players will take control of a character known as “the Kid”, a young survivor who wakes to a world that has crumbled around him, with no one to help him but an old man who believes he holds the key to bringing things back to the way they were. In addition to pitting players against a host of savage creatures using a variety of unconventional weapons, Bastion features stunning high-resolution artwork, a deep original story, and an innovative reactive narration system that responds to players’ actions throughout the adventure.


Bastion launches on July 20th as the first game in Microsoft’s exclusive Summer of Arcade line-up, and will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points. The game will also be available for PC later this year.
