Is this a retitled version of their Colonial Marines sidescroller for DS* (which was apparently shelved due to the delays of the console version), or something else entirely?

*Sorry for the shitty music - I believe Sega took all versions of the original video upload offline and that's what I could find.

No platforms mentioned and I suppose it won't be a DS (only) game anymore. Perhaps for the downloadable services? 3DS?

I don't believe this was ever confirmed, and I'm personally less than optimistic.

FYI, here's the thread from two years ago on Colonial Marines DS. Video links don't work anymore, but there's a quote from a former WayForward employee implying that it would have been a Metroid-esque title.

It would be cool if it shows up for psn/live. That trailer is so old the game could look like anything by now.

Completely agree. An Alien Metroidvania would make my day. Announcement at E3, perhaps?

WayForward did a DS version of that, which was shelved when the Gearbox version was shelved in late 2008.

In that case this is most likely the skeleton of that game.

I haven't been disappointed with any WayForward title yet, so I'm definitely optimistic about this title. The canceled version looked good, hopefully they're sprucing it up in this new release.

They've got Colonial Marines... maybe... and the Creative Assembly project, which is reportedly huge. I doubt it.

They used it as the test game for the rest of the franchise.

Now they even have Creative Assembly making a survival horror title.

The Aliens games have a pretty decent track record as far as sidecrollers go (I loved both the SNES and Genesis versions of Alien 3) and this is WayForward. Looks like fun so far, but the video was kind of vague in a lot of ways.

WayForward and Aliens? Sounds cool.

That Colonial Marines sidescroller looked fun too, at least the sprite art and animation was great looking. Wouldn't mind if this is a retitle of that game.

The other Colonial marine threads are so old I thought I'd just throw this in here. Over at Joystiq today they received the severed head of Casey from Aliens. As it finally seems Gearbox is actually going to show off Aliens at E3. Like for real this time.
