On April 13th, Sony announced that the new franchise from Sucker Punch, inFamous, would actually not be releasing in June as previously stated but instead, will be coming home May 26th. Click here for the official statement. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this new title, infamous is a third person sandbox adventure that takes elements from the game City of Heroes and GTA and forces you to make decisions as to whether or not you’ll become inFamous as a Hero or a villain.

InFamous comes to you from the guys at Sucker Punch Productions, the people who brought you Sly Cooper (a title that myself and my wife very much enjoyed). The graphics for this game look stellar, and I have no doubt that this is going to be one of the best new properties to come out this year. I, for one, am very excited to get my hands on it. You can expect a full review as shortly after the game hits shelves. In the mean time, there are plenty of pre-order options out there if you can’t wait for May 26th that will help you get your hands on an advance demo of the game.

This is very good news for us and Sony to get a game out in what has generally been a slow period for AAA titles. Here’s a trailer for the game. If this adrenaline charged video doesn’t get your heart pumping you should see a doctor or maybe even a coroner. Enjoy.
