The following list of trailers includes games that are exclusive to 3DS, Vita and PC with several others available on the PS3 and Xbox 360, and they range from gameplay trailers to completely animated cinematic teasers. Watch them below, and pick your favorite.

Anarchy Reigns

  • Platinum Games, Sega
  • January 2012 (PS3, Xbox 360)

Total mayhem. Anarchy Reigns is an online online beat ’em up game.

Armored Core 5

  • From Software, Namco Bandai
  • 2012 (PS3, Xbox 360)

Fast-paced action, awful in-game commentary. Armored Core 5 makes its mechs smaller than its predecessors and increases focus on stealth, tactics and use of the environment, while also including an online 5 vs. 5 team battle mode.

Dark Souls

  • From Software, Namco Bandai
  • October 4, 2011 (PS3, Xbox 360)

The spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls. Dark Souls will feature more weapons, spells and player classes over its predecessors, while also increasing the difficulty of the game to ensure players feel fear when dungeon crawling.

Journey

  • Thatgamecompany, Sony
  • 2011 (PS3)

Like Flow and Flower before it, another unconventional must-play. With no instructions or maps, Journey pits players in the desert with the simple goal of journeying to the mountain in the background. Journey was nominated for Game Rant’s best original game of E3 2011 award.

Might & Magic Heroes VI

  • Black Hole Entertainment, Ubisoft
  • October 13, 2011 (PC)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PKxXdSUl3Q

Beautiful cinematic trailer that screams “epic.” Might & Magic Heroes VI is a turn-based strategy game only available on PC and takes place before the events of Might & Magic Heroes V, developed by Black Hole Entertainment instead of Nival.

Tekken 3D Prime Edition

  • Namco Bandai
  • TBA (3DS)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7Y40wT6Jgw

One of the best looking 3DS titles to date. Tekken 3D is the second Tekken title on the 3DS, this time offering 60 FPS framerates with the 3D on or off, along with 40 characters for players to choose.

The Secret World

  • Funcom, EA
  • April 2012 (PC)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uMsXj_6ut0o

Guns, swords, magic and monsters. Confirmed back in 2007 and undergoing two name changes to date, The Secret World promises to be a very unique MMO that combines an interesting story while removing traditional RPG elements such as “levels” and player classes, in exchange for a more accessible skill-based system. The Secret World is based in the modern world, blending in supernatural myths and history.

Trine 2 Co-Op Trailer

  • Frozenbyte, Atlus
  • September 2011 (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=52FFEqEfkG0

Some of the most fun you can have with friends in a side-scroller. Trine 2 brings back the style and characters of the original Trine, but this time lets the Wizard, Thief and Knight play together co-operatively all at the same time.

WipEout 2048

  • Studio Liverpool, Sony
  • 2011 (Vita)

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IvO8T1eG_vU

An over-the-top futuristic racer for Vita players looking for an adrenaline rush. WipEout 2048 brings players back to anti-gravity racing while also letting Vita players enjoy cross-platform play with PS3 owners of Wipeout HD Fury.

Might & Magic Heroes VI boasts the most impressive CGI trailer while the best gameplay comes from the short bits of Trine 2 and WipEout 2048 footage. Which trailer do you like best and which of these games will you seek out?
