Exclusive trailer: The Kore Gang blends Psychonauts and Ratchet & Clank (with a dash of Crash for good measure)

What do you get when you mix Psychonauts, Crash Bandicoot, and Ratchet & Clank in a blender? A blender full of broken DVDs and cases, obviously. But what if you mix together the ideas that made those franchises so popular? According to Snap Dragon Games, you get The Kore Gang, the developer's Wii-exclusive action/adventure game set to launch next week in North America. We have an exclusive trailer for you to feast your eyeballs on, and it shouldn't take very long for you to spot the influences.

Some of the characters absolutely look like they were snatched out of Tim Schafer's personal doodle book, and that's enough to at least pique our interests. We're not entirely sold on the gameplay, since it isn't shown off in too much detail during this short trailer, but we're definitely going to give it a try next week. Well, maybe not actually next week - this month is sort of crazy - but eventually, for sure. Eventually.
