Watch the first gameplay trailer for ReCore, coming September to Xbox One and Windows 10

One of our favorite trailers from last year's E3 keynote was the Xbox One exclusive ReCore, which looked like Star Wars and Wall•E mashed together. And now it's almost ready to go: Microsoft has announced that ReCore is set to launch September 13th.

A new trailer showed the wide cast of robots players will be able to guide around the environment, using their unique abilities to climb walls, leap over electric barriers, and destroy enemy bots. The game looks like a combination of third-person shooter and puzzle game, with the masked hero combining the powers of their robot friend with quick-dodging gunplay in a rusted desert world. As with most games Microsoft has showed off at this year's E3, ReCore will be playable on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

Though the original trailer lacked any gameplay footage, the names behind the title — Megan Man creator Keiji Inafune and the makers of Metroid Prime — were more than enough to elicit excitement. And it set up an interesting concept, centering around a lone human survivor exploring a desert wasteland with her blue orb companion, which could slot into various robots for fighting the red-orb'd robots... okay, it's better if you just watch the video. Trust us.
