Starbreeze has officially taken the wraps off of its mysterious original IP known previously as "P13," unveiling its new, official title, the tautological Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
The Unreal Engine-powered game follows two boys (who are brothers, and also sons) as they go on a journey to retrieve the "Water of Life" for their sick father. Filmmaker Josef Fares is collaborating with Starbreeze and 505 on the development of this XBLA, PSN, and PC game.
The first trailer is above, revealing what looks like a very pretty fantasy action-adventure experience. Brothers will be released spring 2013.
