Destiny 2‘s live action trailer from several days ago packed in plenty of action and teased the gargantuan showdown between the Guardians and the Red Legion leader Ghaul, while also highlighting the game’s new subclass abilities. Now, though, it looks as if the first-person science fiction shooter’s live action trailer for Japan is giving the original clip a run for its money, as the Eastern country’s celebration of the title features a huge dance party.
As seen below in Japan’s live action trailer for Destiny 2 known as “Freestyle Playground,” a glut of Guardians get down to an electronic dance track after one member of a Fireteam is found grooving by themselves in the middle of a mission. Eventually, a whole slew of Hunters, Titans, and Warlocks join the group for a gigantic choreographed set piece featuring soccer balls, glow sticks, fireworks, and more.
Although many fans would likely primarily categorize Destiny 2 as a looter-shooter experience, one element of the franchise that often gets overlooked is the fun that can be had with its social features, which is surely what the above live action trailer is attempting to encapsulate. One instance of this occurring in the game can be seen in this Halloween music video that was made by the YouTuber known as Husky Raid and several other Guardians, with a crew of players managing to coordinate and work as a unit perfectly for over six minutes, which culminates in a great choreographed dance sequence to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
All things considered, while Destiny 2‘s Japan launch trailer is a wonderful treat, it’s safe to say that there are plenty of fans who will miss out on watching it due to them already being wrapped up in the game, as it officially launched for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One today. As a matter of fact, with the first month for the game being chock full of content, it’s a safe bet to make that most Guardians will only have Destiny 2‘s gameplay on the brain for quite some time.
Destiny 2 is available now for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and it launches on October 24, 2017 for PC.
