Vanquish remaster pops up on Microsoft Store

December 05, 2019 1 min read

A listing - appearing out of the blue on the Microsoft Store - has seemingly revealed a remastered edition of Shinji Mikami's sci-fi shooter Vanquish. According to the listing, this new edition will feature 4K visuals running at 60FPS on Xbox One X, and will on February 18. The listing was first spotted by twitter user @h0x0d.

Originally released for PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2010, Vanquish is a mech-heavy third-person shooter which sees players pilot DARPA agent Sam Gideon through a series of chaotic battlezones. With enemy fire coming in thick and fast, Gideon must use acrobatic and speedy evasive maneuvers while countering with his suit's BLADE firepower.

Inventive in design and breathless in its approach to third-person action, there was nothing else quite like it at the time, which helped Vanquish rack up positive reviews and even some Game of the Year awards, as well as helping to secure developer PlatinumGames status as the action game studio of the new decade.

Surprisingly, the Vanquish remaster listing is still up at the time of this writing, so it's likely we'll be hearing some official details on this release very soon.
