PlatinumGames producer Atsushi Inaba has confirmed a demo for upcoming third-person shooter Vanquish.

That's according to Andriasang, which reports that the demo is due out for PS3 and Xbox 360 on 2nd September in Japan, at least.

The teaser will allow players to go through a prologue sequence and go up against Argos in a boss fight, perhaps emerging with some bargain cutlery and a couple of new draught excluders.

Called "Velocity Attack", the demo will be playable on casual and normal difficulties. The former diminishes your manhood by introducing an auto-aim feature.

According to reports, the demo at next month's Tokyo Game Show will expand on Velocity Attack with new playable areas and a surprise appearance by a familiar face.

Vanquish is a third-person cover shooter set in the near future when the world's resources are almost depleted.

The Russians and US are violently disputing ownership of a space station designed to draw energy from the sun, and you play a dude in a lightweight mech suit sent in to separate the men from the armoured soldiers with rechargeable shields.

Check out our Vanquish hands-on preview from a few weeks ago to see whether it's up your street.

Publisher SEGA recently announced that Vanquish will be released on 22nd October in Europe.
