Aliens Infestation Footage

Nintendo Everything has just posted up 13 minutes worth of gameplay footage & an interview with a Sega rep that appears to have been recorded off the Gamespot live feed. It seems to be the first level of the game in which the player is exploring the abandoned (apparently) Sulaco. We see WY androids, Aliens, much of the previously mentioned large multi-platformed levels and the artwork:

In related news, the first preview of from Comic Con has also shown up online. Thanks to Ikarop.

    I hope this will not be the kind of game that only ships like 2 copies to Gamestop and no where else. AVP Requiem for the PSP had a similar problem.

    We have kinda known about it for a while: http://www.avpgalaxy.net/games/aliens-infestation/

    Aliens: Infestation was never officially announced by Sega.  At the time of it’s discovery it was known only as Aliens: Colonial Marines. A gameplay video was leaked onto YouTube in May 2009 which showed a couple of minutes of footage from the game. This was quickly removed from YouTube by Sega which more or less confirmed its existence. It was developed by Wayforward in association with Gearbox Software. Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines game and this probably share a few details. Notable scenes in the leaked footage include a Space Jockey Alien, a Rhino Alien and a scene with a powerloader fighting with a Queen Alien. It was rumoured that the game was complete but Sega cancelled the game due to financial reasons.

    In May 2011, Sega had the game classified in Australia, suggesting the game will indeed be released. Way Forward also confirmed the games existence when AvPGalaxy approached them. In July 2011. Sega officially announced the game for a September 2011 release.

    Does anyone know why this game wasn't advertized more? This was the first that I have heard of this game, and so soon to the release date.

    I hope this will not be the kind of game that only ships like 2 copies to Gamestop and no where else. AVP Requiem for the PSP had a similar problem.

    So they're exploring the Sulaco because an alien life-form was still on board after Aliens...  Sounds like they might have come up with their own explanation for the infamous egg-on-Sulaco debate that plagues Alien 3.

    Going to get it for the 3DS since its backwards compatible and can play DS games. Pre-Ordered it already.

    I think [..] it won't be anything spectacular.

    that's the reason why i won't by a ds only for this particular game. i'm just getting curious, coz i bought my psp only because of metal gear solid peace walker, but that's another class of game and comparing with each other will be clueless.

     
    I'm looking forward to it because games like Contra and Metroid are always fun no matter how many times I play them.

    and that same meaning wishes a release via psn. but anyway i won't be dissapointed that much coz my focus is being on colonial marines. that sure will be a hell of a game!

    a port as a PSNdownload or xbox arcade game would be awesome, coz i won't buy a ds just for that game.

    My DS collects dust about 362 days out of the year but this will be a reason for me to use it just a little bit more.  It will probably be the last DS game I ever buy considering that nothing really good comes out for this system anymore.

    My 2 cents about why this is a DS exclusive:

    SEGA probably chose the DS as the platform for this game because the DS has the largest user base of all the handheld consoles currently available.  The game also looks a bit relaxed on the production level; what you have here is really just a standard 2D shooter.  I don't think this game was very expensive to make at all. 

    Basically, a cheap game from an attractive franchise on a system with a large user base might add a little bit to the company's bottom line...and may piggyback on the success of A:CM when it comes out later in the fiscal year.  It's a win-win game for SEGA with very little risk.

    I think it'll be fun and reminiscent of Metroid and Contra but it won't be anything spectacular.  I'm looking forward to it because games like Contra and Metroid are always fun no matter how many times I play them.
