Binary Domain is a dynamic action-adventure, featuring a cast of striking characters battling through 2080 era Tokyo in an effort to cleanse mankind of a race of hybrid robot/humans known as ‘Hollow Children’. As they explore a country ravaged by climate change and social upheaval, Dan Marshall and his R.U.S.T. crew will have to fight through both the slums of the lower city and the pristine hi-tech environments of the upper city. The R.U.S.T. Crew’s varied arsenal of tactics and weaponry will be necessary in order to emerge victorious in thrilling boss encounters, while Binary Domain’s procedural damage system allows players to shred their robotic foes limb-by-limb in high-intensity fire fights.

Binary Domain Preview Event

Toshihiro Nagoshi - Visiting for the Binary Domain event

Recently we had a true honor here at the San Francisco SEGA office – we had Toshihiro Nagoshi arrive to personally guide a demo for our upcoming game, Binary Domain! Nagoshi-san is the creator of many SEGA franchises, from Monkey Ball to Yakuza and so many games in between. His newest title, Binary Domain, focuses on the 3rd person shooter genre, bringing excellent squad play, top notch voice controls and an engaging story.

Nagoshi-san’s trip featured a chance to meet with local press outlets, conduct interviews, and show people what Binary Domain is all about. After a brief intro featuring notes about the gameplay, in particular the voice controlled commands, everyone was given a chance to dive in and experience Binary Domain. We’ve compiled a batch of links from folks that played the game and their impressions of what they experienced and some of the stuff that took them by surprise, enjoy:

- Gamesradar:

We were pleasantly surprised by how seriously the story and world is being taken in Binary Domain, especially given that it’s a genre where those sorts of details often fall by the wayside, for better or for worse. And from what we’ve seen so far, the attention to the story hasn’t come at the expense of the other gameplay elements either – cutting through waves of robots with a badass minigun was still one of the highlights of the demo. We can’t wait to see everything that Binary Domain has in store, so look for more details as we approach its Valentine’s Day release date.

Binary Domain Event

- 1UP.com:

I’m not ready to call it the next Gears of War or anything, but it sure is refreshing to play a distinct third-person shooter that follows in the grand tradition of Japanese science fiction. Moreso than playing another zombie shooter, anyway. Here’s hoping that Binary Domain is able to make good on its promise. I, for one, am ready for the robot revolution to get started in earnest.

- Destructoid.com:

With only a few short months away it’s hard not to get a little bit excited for this intriguing third-person shooter. Its gripping story of robots versus humans, good versus evil, and the lower-class versus the elite of humanity has made Binary Domain on my most anticipated titles for next year. The game just exudes human emotion — fitting considering Binary Domain releases on Valentine’s Day.

- GameRevolution.com:

Let’s face it: Japanese-made games that attempt to emulate “Western style” action games don’t have a very good track record. Titles like Dark Void, Quantum Theory, and Lost Planet have tried to do the Third-Person Shooter with results ranging from decent to… abysmal. But here comes Toshihiro Nagoshi, who took his Yakuza team (the game, not the scary-ass gangsters) off of their usual projects to say, “[Forget] those other guys, we can do a Japanese Third-Person Shooter right.” And from the 2+ hours of gameplay we’ve seen of Binary Domain from E3 up through the recent showing in downtown San Francisco, he just might be telling the truth.

Press playing Binary Domain

- GotGame.com:

Binary Domain has a few strings to its bow: engaging fiction, voice commands, light RPG elements, and robots that snap, crackle, and pop. Hopefully – by release day on Valentine’s Day, 2012 – SEGA will have applied that extra layer of varnish to make its new IP something special, and a good start to the young year.

- TotalPlayStation.com

Even without the multiplayer component, though, Binary Domain definitely looks like it’ll bring the Yakuza series’ storytelling style to bear here in impressive ways. If nothing else, having something that feels innately like a cyberpunk storyline with echoes of Philip K. Dick is more than enough to get us excited, and we eagerly look forward to checking out more of Binary Domain before it hits on February 14th.
