It's been a few months since we heard anything about Binary Domain, the sci-fi shooter from the Yakuza team. Sega has now situated the game in time -- a time other than its year-2080 setting, that is -- providing an "early 2012" release window.

The trailer after the break introduces the story, in which humans in a futuristic Japanese megalopolis fight against murderous androids who have infiltrated society. Sure, the gameplay's totally different, but we're going to pretend for now that this is the Snatcher sequel we never got.
