Today, Square Enix announced it would be bringing an "all-new approach" to the genre with Gun Loco which is a Sci-Fi Shooter game, a frenetic future combat shooter that is slated to arrive exclusively for the Xbox 360 in 2011. Gun Loco will also feature 12-player online matches across a variety of different modes.

Gun Loco is an Australian outback story, in which the universe's most off-kilter lunatics and criminals are shipped off to a remote prison colony. Unbound and ungoverned, the cons engage in brutal gang warfare as they vie for survival and ultimate power over the planet. The conflict plays out across a variety of climate zones and locales, and players will also find themselves thrashing fellow criminals amongst the ruins of the planet's fallen civilizations.
