Magicka: Other Side Of The Coin Landing In June

Magicka - much like a vampire or reality television - is seemingly incapable of death. Somewhat brilliantly, it's traversed locations as far flung as Cthulhu's stomping grounds and, er, Vietnam and lived to tell the incredibly silly tale. And now, it's letting you play as a villain, because how else do you impress people after exploring the two least likely settings possible? So this time around, you're Alucart the vampire, and your goal is to make a bunch of fantasy cliches hate each other. "But how," you're probably wondering, probing the deepest dungeons of your brain only to find cobwebs, bats, and repressed memories. Well, er, you know: with magic. Like it says in the title. See for yourself after the break.

So then, it was no noir trailer, but it looks like more Magicka, and I'm pretty OK with that. It's now officially slated for a June 14th release, too, so you'll be feeling bad about feeling good about being good at being bad in just a couple weeks. Which, I think, basically means "setting everything on fire."
