Wired: Last year, The Last Guy on PlayStation 3 took a very basic game idea and made it remarkable by using aerial maps of real locations as levels in the game. Someone at Square Enix must have loved that idea, because it has done just that with its upcoming shooter 0 Day Attack on Earth.
Square Enix has taken the concept a step further by making 3-D renderings of major cities around the world, rather than simply borrowing images from Google Earth.
The trailer being shown here at the Tokyo Game Show boasts "defend real cities" without listing how many there are. The action moves too fast for me to pick out many locations, although I definitely spotted the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The demo level was unsurprisingly limited to Tokyo, a city I don't think I could recognize based on urban topography alone save for the Tokyo Tower.
