Sumioni Trailer is Art in Motion

on December 1, 2011 10:45 AM

Aquire has released a new, gorgeous trailer for paint brush adventure Sumioni, due out on the PlayStation Vita in Japan on February 9.

Players make use of the Vita’s touch screen to interact with their Sumioni, meaning “ink brush demon,” painting platforms for him to jump on in order to move through levels. The game’s art style is unique, invoking Japan’s artistic past with its stylized backgrounds modeled after ancient ink paintings.

Check out the trailer after the cut: it is two minutes of beautiful eye candy.
