I'm no expert at holding swords and such, but that doesn't look like an effective way to dispatch robots.

Supergiant Games, the guys who brought us 2011’s artsy fantasy fighter Bastion are back with another fantastic looking action title set in a well-produced dystopic future. After nearly being killed by a group of assailants, the Transistor, the giant sword with extraordinary power that you see above, falls into the hands of a young woman, says Supergiant’s Greg Kasavin. We’ve got the teaser trailer below.

First impressions: it looks a lot like Bastion. This is that same team, plus a few more heads, but that’s not a bad thing in the slightest. Bastion was a thoroughly realized game in a well-dressed and incredibly unique universe. Transistor also looks to retain the same 2D engine that powered Bastion as well, which looks fine when Supergiant’s art is applied to it. Kasavin said the team wasn’t sure which platforms the game was going to (guaranteed downloadable title, you read it here first), but it’ll be out early next year. We can’t wait.
