Namco Bandai announces Inversion

TimeShift devs twist gravity next year.

Namco Bandai has announced a new 360 and PS3 game: Inversion, a gravity-defying third-person shooter from TimeShift developer Saber Interactive, due to be released in 2010.

Messing with the Newtonian physics is the order of the day, with the player cast as a cop called Davis Russel searching for his missing son in a city turned upside down by an alien invasion.

The alien Lutadore (aren't those Mexican wrestlers?) have gravity weapons that have left areas of zero gravity around the city, or changed which way is up. Players will get a chance to use the gravity-manipulating weapons themselves, and there's Havok-powered destructible cover too.

"We are doing things in Inversion that most people didn't think possible on the current generation of consoles. We can't wait to get Inversion in the hands of gamers across the world," said Saber boss Matthew Karch.

Kotaku has the details and some screens.
