Video: Jedi mind-trick like noboby’s business in Mindjack

Traditionally the beginning of the year is a dead zone, with gamers idly standing by, revisiting an old favourite title, or finally getting around to finishing others, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 changed all that. As titles ducked and covered to get out of the way of the juggernaut, choosing instead to slip to January or February, a new age dawned. The age of the year round release. Mass Effect 2 proved that the end of the year isn’t the only time to stock up on titles, and Square Enix’s Mindjack hopes to mine the same deposit as it hits our shores on the 20th January 2011.

As the trailer below depicts, you can get your Mr Smith from The Matrix on as you invade and control the minds of just about anyone. It’s a stellar concept and I, for one, am looking forward to getting a closer look at how it actaully plays. For now, this gameplay will have to suffice.
