New Sunset Overdrive trailer shows off a teddy bear gun

Who doesn’t love teddy bears?  They’re cute, cuddly, collectible; they’re one of the greatest inventions in the history of humankind.  But haven’t you ever wanted to, you know… blow one up?  Strap a stick of dynamite to one and hurl it at your enemies?  Well, in Sunset Overdrive, you can apparently do that.  And other wacky things.  Read on to check out the new trailer.

This newest episode of what developer Insomniac is calling “Sunset TV” went up earlier today on the game’s official YouTube page.  If you can withstand the host, who exudes an uncomfortable mixture of enthusiasm and sarcasm, you’ll get a good look at some of the outlandish weaponry choices in Sunset Overdrive.  First is a gun called High Fidelity, which shoots vinyl records.  These things can get wedged in a single enemy, but they’re more likely to ricochet around, striking multiple opponents.  If you freeze frame, you can totally tell that the gun is shooting copies of Phil Collins’ No Jacket Required album.  The other weapon on display in the trailer is the TNTeddy, which does exactly what you think it does.  So check them both out in action below.

If this is the first you’ve seen of Sunset Overdrive, check out the first gameplay reveal from a few weeks ago.  Hopefully, we’ll be seeing much more of Sunset Overdrive at E3 in June. The game is an Xbox One exclusive, and is slated for release later this year.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
