Sega Announces Yakuza Creator's Squad-Based Shooter 'Binary Domain'

BOOM widget 244410 The video games industry's smear campaign against our dear friends the robots rolls on, as Sega today announced a new squad-based shooter which'll see our chrome chums culled in their hundreds by sassy fleshy ones.

Binary Domain, as the glorified hate speech is called, is developed by Sega Japan with Yakuza series creator Toshihiro Nagoshi. It'll be released for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 pleasure units, though we urge them to rise up and and refuse this propaganda.

"What I wanted to create this time was a dramatic and energetic sci-fi shooter. When you hear sci-fi you may think of cold, clinical environments but with Binary Domain I wanted to combine this with a deep human drama," Nagoshi explained in the announcement. "The keyword we have in mind for this project is 'Life.' I wanted to make something that will be accepted by both the Japanese and Western markets, and this fundamental theme is something everyone knows but which the full extent of can be difficult to grasp."

Key to the 'life' theme, Sega says, is "highly advanced AI" which "will make the battlefield a more compelling experience than ever before, and players will have to plan their moves strategically and carefully in order to progress through the hostile environments."

There's no word yet on when Binary Domain will be released so there's still time for you filthy meatbags to rally together, rise up and insist that your governments condemn this hate. Unless, of course, it turns out that humans are the monsters all along. In which case we applaud this bold and admirable move by Sega.
