Today Konami released a brand new trailer of its upcoming mecha action game Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner M∀RS, remastered version of the original Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner produced by Hideo Kojima

The trailer provides us with a new look on the renewed graphics that can be cranked up to 4K resolution on PC and PS4 Pro. We also get to see the new features including the VR mode, the model viewer, the cinematic theater, the hangar, the new controls, a new tutorial, and the “very easy” difficulty mode for the chumps.

Unsurprisingly, it looks awesome, pretty much like everything Hideo Kojima contributed to.

Incidentally, we now also have a firm release date, which is September 4th for North America (September 6th in Europe and Japan). It will be launching for PS4 and PC, with support for PlayStation VR and Steam VR. A demo is also coming on the PlayStation Store, even if we don’t know a release date for that.

You can check out the trailers below. You’ll notice that I included the Japanese version on purpose as the second video below. While it’s in Japanese, it includes considerably more footage focusing on the story and characters. Konami appears to think that we don’t care about that, this side of the ocean.

If you want to see more, you can also enjoy a previous comparison trailer and some PlayStation VR gameplay that I filmed back at Tokyo Game Show last September.
