The Horror Geek presents E3 2009: Dante's Inferno trailer

E3 2009 madness continues, now with a new look at Electronic Arts' highly anticipated horror game, Dante’s Inferno.

The new trailer for the game (which is being developed by EA's Visceral Studios—which is the new name for EA's Redwood Shores Studios) will do little to dispel the whole "God of War in Hell" vibe that's come to surround the title, but gamers who feel that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery should still find much to like in this roughly two-and-a-half minute preview.

The trailer does a nice job of highlighting not only the game's story (which finds main character Dante charging into Hell to save his beloved Beatrice—who's been lured there by Lucifer himself) but also showcasing the fluid combat, what appears to be a gigantic boss, and highlighting how cool looking the videogame interpretation of the inferno truly is. That's an impressive set of accomplishments for 2:20 of screen time…

Dante's Inferno will make its debut on the Xbox 360, PS3, and the PSP in 2010.
