Even after watching this movie, the game still doesn't make much sense. But man, does it look amazing.

Capcom of Japan has updated their Killer7 website with a game trailer. This particular trailer just happens to be the one that was shown at TGS last month.

The trailer shows off how bloody and cel-shaded the game will turn out to be. There is a lot of shooting, a lot of killing, and a lot of blood being spilled, all in that shaded fashion. You can see all seven of the main character's "personalities" in motion as well.

Now they're one of the largest shareholders, but don't expect to see a buyout anytime soon.

Update: More information has surfaced about the deal. Apparently, Nintendo had got a pretty sizeable chunk of their newly acquired shares from Mattel, the toy company. Mattel had an agreement with Bandai in 1999, which was to end at the end of this year. As a result of this, Mattel decided to dump some Bandai stock, and Nintendo wound up nabbing it from them.
