Aliens: Colonial Marines DS Trailer Leaked?

Posted by Damien McFerran

Could this be Wayforward's spiritual follow-up to Contra 4?

A mysterious trailer has hit YouTube recently that appears to show footage from Aliens: Colonial Marines for the Nintendo DS.

The previously unheard of game appears to have been coded by highly respected developer Wayforward. While we're not entirely convinced this is a 100% official video, it certainly looks very polished for a fake effort, displaying silky-smooth 2D animation and plenty of action.

The video is accompanied on YouTube by the following text:

The CANCELED/unreleased Aliens vs. Space Marines for Nintendo DS. Rumor has it that the game is complete, but had been shelved due to money issues at Sega.

It certainly makes sense as Wayforward has recently been making noises about a new action title that is shaping up to be the spiritual successor to the fantastic Contra 4...perhaps this is it? If so, is the game really cancelled?

Needless to say, we'll be contacting Wayforward for clarification, but in the meantime feast your eyes (and shield your ears) for this:

--The video was removed due to a copyright infringement claim by Sega of America.--

I guess they shouldn't have milked Sonic so much.

That song was............interesting. The game sounds great, but I'm not to sure about that gameplay. Kinda looked lame. Would still like to play it though. Maybe we'll see it sometime in the future.

Didnt have the sound on so missed that, but if this is real and from WayForeward I will be putting my preorder in day one. Love hardcore side scrollers.

UPDATE: the vid has been pulled "due to a copyright claim by SEGA of America." Sounds pretty offical then.

It was the most amazing 2-D experience you've ever seen. I'm changed forever just for having witnessed it. :D I might just give up gaming now as it can never be any more unbelievable than that.
