E3 2010: The 3rd Birthday's E3 Gameplay Trailer

One of the titles that we’ve been hearing about for a while, yet have seen surprisingly little of, is Square-Enix’s The 3rd Birthday. This title is a spin-off of the Parasite Eve series, the last game being Parasite Eve 2, which released 10 years ago. For the most part we’ve just seen main character, Aya Brea, in a wedding dress in the few pieces of media released to date. Lucky for us, The 3rd Birthday is one of the titles Square-Enix has brought with them to E3 this year.

The trailer below shows off some nice-looking CG, as well as some actual gameplay. I know, that is almost unheard of! This is looking pretty nice for a PSP title, but will it play well? Traditionally I haven’t been too impressed with “shooters” for Sony’s handheld (or from Square-Enix in general, to be honest). Can this one break the mold? Check out the good below.
