I love me some top-down RPG action.
The game that was once an experimental isometric RPG for the Duke Nukem franchise morphed into Bombshell and now, 3D Realms and Interceptor Entertainment have released a new gameplay trailer.
Here, Shelly "Bombshell" Harrison dukes it out with a boss named Zeroth Guardian. He's actually two massive beasts with ice-based powers and Shelly must adapt as the battle progresses. She has both offensive and defensive abilities that serve her well in this fight, and we get a good idea of how the game will play.
Bombshell is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC; no release date yet, but here's a summary of the game's ludicrous – though clearly entertaining – plot:
"Once a respected bomb technician in the Global Defense Force, Shelly Harrison donned the codename Bombshell after she failed to disarm an alien explosive that led to the loss of her entire squad and her right arm. Deemed responsible for the resulting casualties in what became known as 'The Washington Incident', Shelly was stripped of her rank but later approached by a private military contractor promising her a chance at redemption. Harnessing the alien technology responsible for the dramatic turn in her life, Shelly became Bombshell–a tough-as-nails mercenary-for-hire touting a powerful bionic arm and a fierce attitude."
