When you think of Square Enix, the first thing that pops in your mind is probably something on the lines of Japanese anime touchy feely game.  Well this new IP from Square Enix is the total opposite of what we are used to seeing for.

Gun Loco is a fast-paced third person shooter with a twist. The game involves a lot of running, jumping, dodging, and vaulting. The characters will also have different kill moves that are over the top explosive kind of finishers.

The story is on the line of a prison planet with a chaotic war going on. You get to pick different region on the planet (factions) to fight for. Thats all there is to know about the story so far but it we doubt that it will be as story driven as the other games Square Enix has done.

The art work is obviously and interesting choice but it lets you get a feel of the games tone. We expect it to be funny and witty with characters that have over the top personalities.

The other thing is that Gun Loco is a Xbox 360 exclusive. From the art style and the direction this game seems to be taking its obvious that the game is targeting the western audience. The fact that is an Xbox exclusive is good proof of that. Square Enix looks to be trying to profit off of the other genres that they have yet to conquer, but will this game go under the radar like their latest new IP Nier?
