Sega has announced the new title from Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi: squad-based shooter Binary Domain for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The game looks set to riff on some of the ideas popularised by the likes of Blade Runner and Ghost in a Shell. Set in Tokyo in the year 2080, an international peace-keeping squad combat an invading robotic army through the city's derelict districts. the developer promises "innovative AI system" that'll "make the battlefield a more compelling experience."

"What I wanted to create this time was a dramatic and energetic sci-fi shooter. When you hear sci-fi you may think of cold, clinical environments but with Binary Domain I wanted to combine this with a deep human drama" commented Toshihiro Nagoshi. "The keyword we have in mind for this project is "Life". I wanted to make something that will be accepted by both the Japanese and Western markets and this fundamental theme is something everyone knows, but which the full extent of can be difficult to grasp."

"We are excited and proud to have Toshihiro Nagoshi working on Binary Domain," commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA of Europe and SEGA of America. "The game is being developed in Japan yet it is designed for a global audience and will take players into an exhilarating story wrapped into a unique, action-packed shooter experience in a fresh new setting."

If the result is anything like a mix between Sega's last futuristic effort Vanquish and the awesome Japanese Manga series Bubblegum Crisis we'll be happy. Check back soon for the debut trailer too.
