Watch Japan’s Version Of The Latest Binary Domain Trailer

Remember the Binary Domain trailer Sega released last month? Japan now has that trailer, too, but it feels very different from its English counterpart. The same scenes have been edited together in a different order with a much more mellow soundtrack playing in the background.


Here’s a look at the video, uploaded by 4Gamer:



And here’s the English trailer from last month for comparison:



If you’re just getting caught up, Binary Domain is under the care of Yakuza director, Toshihiro Nagoshi, with overseas staff helping out on the game as well. Nagoshi hopes the man vs. machine game will appeal to both overseas and Japanese gamers.

    really changed my mind after seeing the JPN trailer.will definitely check this out :D hope this is longer than Vanquish. love that game but the downside. it’s only short

  • The Japanese trailer is ::alright::. I feel the English trailer’s piano transition to distorted guitar(still accompanied by piano) ending with chimes set the mood much better.

    It actually sort of reminds me of “In A Heartbeat” from 28 Days Later, which is also a damn well made piece.

    The Japanese trailer music just seemed out of place. Possibly more suited to a “landscape-sweep” trailer.

    EDIT: And speaking of the music, I hope we get an OST or track download for the english trailer. It was be a great stand-aline piece to listen to.

    • It is a real song, look up “65DaysOfStatic – Aren’t We All Running”. Usually, for trailers, if you follow the link to watch on YouTube, someone in the comments has identified the song.

      • You are an amazing person. And while your logic for checking comments does seem sound at first glance, when you get the eyecancer that is “LOLSUXXORZ” “STOOPED” etc. etc. it falls apart sadly.

        Thanks for the song name.

      Opposite of that, I really enjoy the song from the Japanese trailer a lot more. =P

    Wasn’t impressed with the English trailer but the Japanese one has grabbed my interest.

    The first thing that I thought of when seeing this is Vanquish. Which is a good thing because I loved the game, a very Japanese take on shooters.

    The second thing that I thought of was Front Mission Evolved, especially the ugly out-of-mech parts of the game. Which is NOT a good thing because FME was just an overall crummy game. Maybe it’s just because Binary Domain is still under development, but the characters look stale and stiff just like in FME…

    Hopefully it’s more the Vanquish side than the FME side!

    Is it me or does this remind anyone else of a terminator-esque ‘Lost Planet 2’?
