E3 2016: Bound Receives Mysterious, Balletic Trailer

Sony’s Santa Monica Studio announced Bound a while back with a beautiful trailer featuring a ribbon dancer performing graceful moves through an abstract geometric landscape.  The new trailer is more of the same, so the mystery of what it is you actually do in Bound will linger a bit longer, but there’s no denying the grace of the dancer’s movements.  Watching her glide through the world as it rearranges around her is well worth the 103 seconds, and the shadow of the monster at the end hints that there’s more going on here than putting a series of fluid moves together.  Bound is fascinating in its grace and mystery, and the trailer’s hints at the game to come will hopefully be answered on the E3 show floor.  Such as- why is she wearing Opa Opa as a hat?
