Watch: Gamecube Prison dances with mechs in P.N.03

Welcome to GameCube Prison (opens in new tab), the first season of a new regular video series looking back on console-exclusive games trapped behind technological bars. In this episode, we learn that ballet can be sufficiently weaponized if you've got the right dance moves.

Often misread as a stilted third-person action game, P.N. 03 is an utterly unique take on combat that rewards deft dodging and rhythmic return-fire. Plus: you get to be Vanessa Z. Schneider, one of the most agile and elegant characters to ever come from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. Coupled with an initially bizarre but apt method of control, P.N. 03 is as GameCube as it gets.

In the next episode: Metal Gear?!
