'Severed' trailer shows that the PS Vita is full of life

The creators of 'Guacamelee' want you to know what Sony's gaming handheld can do.

If you need proof that the PlayStation Vita is a haven for creative games, Drinkbox Studios just delivered it in spades. The Guacamelee developer has posted a fresh gameplay trailer for Severed, its surreal dungeon crawler for Sony's handheld, and it's clear that this isn't your usual slash-em-up. The blend of a nightmarish art style with touchscreen swordplay looks exciting, and more than a little trippy -- think Mexican folk art with a horror vibe. There's still no firm release date for Severed, but the title is definitely shaping up nicely.
