SEGA have announced a release date for an English Vanquish demo, and that date is August 31st. Along with the announcement, Vanquish community manager, Julian Mehlfeld, issues a challenge to players on the PlayStation blog.


The best clear time for the Vanquish demo at SEGA, he says, is 6 minutes and 12 seconds — a record established by one of their internal producers. The challenge is to to try and best this time.


Additionally, he recommends going through the tutorial in order to learn how the Boost and Augmented Reaction abilities tie into each other and how to use each one effectively.

    “Additionally, he recommends going through the tutorial”

    I don’t know about others, but personally, when I buy a new game and it has a tutorial, I always play that first. I assume that would be the best course of action anyway?

      Some people prefer to jump head first into something not knowing anything and having their ass handed to them. See the MP crowd who neglect the Campaign of a game and hop right into a MP match and ask you how to do something you’d learn 10-15 minutes into the story :|

        sometimes i find it funner to learn things on the fly. however i know its my fault for not tutorial if i die in the game because of it lol…if the game looks like its gonna be hard to grasp though..i take the tutorial xD

  • do we get something if we beat the demo in less time than that

  • andref

    I see they moved up from september 2

    • hyuver

      It’s not moved up, the september 2 is for japanese PSN, this one is for US and EU

      • andref

        Ah i had thought september 2 was for us

  • Pfft tutorial! I will just keep button mashing until it works and then learn from that!, lol.

    Anyway, the demo is definitely needed for this, the game looks from the trailers too *hardcore* for me, but Im glad they are giving a chance to try it

    Guess I’ll have to find some time play this demo in-between my Other M play sessions on that day.

    • Other M is getting pushed back to October because of this demo for me! Woo! Wait… then Vanquish comes out for real… I guess Other M gets pushed back to next year!

  • 3 more days!!! Ahhh!!! ;)
