on December 10, 2016 5:32 PM

Publisher 505 Games and developer Giant Squid released a new ABZU trailer through Xbox’s official YouTube channel to accompany the game’s launch onto Xbox One. But not just any ol’ trailer. No, no, no, an accolades trailer.

As you may remember, ABZU first launched digitally for PS4 and PC back in August where it received decent critical acclaim, especially for its visuals. DualShockers personally awarded it a 9 out of 10 in our review.

As for the new trailer, it runs at one minute and 47 seconds, and features more gorgeous footage of the game, as well as favorable blurbs about the game from various outlets.

For those of who have never heard of ABZU, here’s a brief overview from 505 Games:

Abzu is an epic descent into the depths of the sea where players explore the mystery and wonder of the ocean, while the distinct art style blends beautifully rendered ocean environments alongside a deeply emotional narrative. As ‘the Diver,’ players will uncover their true connection to the ocean, as the world around them begins to unlock its secrets. Fluid swimming controls allows the Diver to interact with lush kelp forests; thousands of fish and hidden worlds, which await her on her quest.

ABZU is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Seeming this post is about the game’s Xbox One release, it is probably worth pointing out that if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member, you can get the game currently for $16.99 USD, three dollars off its usual $19.99 price point.

Below, you can check out the new trailer:
