The wheels of Gameloft’s marketing machine were set in motion again today, as the company has released a teaser trailer for a new upcoming game. Called 9mm, it looks to be another 3D action game centered around crime, not totally unlike the Gangstar series. So far, 9mm looks a lot better than either of the Gangstar games though. The graphics look greatly improved and there seems to be a more serious, grittier tone to the style of the game. You can even catch a quick glimpse of a stripper dancing and a couple F-bombs getting dropped in the trailer’s soundtrack. Whoa, settle down Gameloft!

Another interesting twist in 9mm is that it appears you’ll be playing the role of a police officer in the game, rather than a street thug. The main character that’s portrayed in the trailer seems to place someone under arrest, and a subtle hint on Gameloft’s German Twitter account that translates to “Only the bravest cops can keep peace and order in the toughest areas”  which also leads us to believe you’ll be playing as a man of the law. One that plays fast and loose with morals, apparently, but a law man nonetheless. Could this finally be my oft-dreamt about video game version of the movie Training Day? One can only hope.

Also worth mentioning is the use of a bullet-time slow down effect during one of the action sequences in the trailer, which was pioneered by the Max Payne series of games. It may be that this plays a part in the actual gameplay, or it could just be a neat effect used for the trailer itself. At this point, anything is just rampant speculation on my part.

Speaking of rampant speculation, there is plenty of that going on in the upcoming thread for 9mm in our forums. If previous Gameloft releases are any indication, there should be a solid gameplay trailer to follow up this teaser in the next few weeks or so, and I would guess that an actual release isn’t more than a month or two away. We’ll let you known when we hear anything more on Gameloft’s 9mm.

    They could have picked any action scenario and they picked gang bang hustling in East L.A.?

  • Flunku

     I'm not playing this game yet again...

  • remmizero

     Wait, are you telling me Gameloft is releasing a game where this is not very clear indication of what the source material is?

  • Frumius

     Did you realize that the soundtrack has obscenities in it? Mother-f'er!  I sorta think you should take it down and put up a clean version.  You can delete my post, too, if you want.  I just wanted to let you know in case it slipped by.

       Are you serious?!? Dude, relax, everything is gonna be alright. They're just words.

    • EastsideStompers

      I agree. Absolutely no need for it. I cringe in NOVA 2 every time one of the bad guys shouts out 'kill that b*stard*'. It adds nothing.

      • Harry

         Are you serious? What, are you 10?

      • Anjoroge

         You don't expect a game with guns, strippers and narcotics to be E for everyone. Grow up dammit

      • EastsideStompers

        Hey, it's just my opinion. Tbh, I'm all for all-out carnage in games, but for some reason swearing feels wrong and pointless. But hey, if a 'f@ck' here and a 'sh@t' there floats your boat, I'm happy for you...tosser;)

        Hi CRASH: ) I really meant that comment as a joke, hence the smiley. Sorry it didn't come across like that. Also, please ignore this other guy who keeps spamming the comments with my user name who is clearly a bit bored.

        Ah.. ok.  Didn't realize it was a different user.

        Yup, he's spamming loads many posts trying to bring my name to shame. I guess some people have nothing better to do... : /

      • Thomas

         I don't condone what's happening to you, but maybe you should grow a pair and stop saying things like " I cringe in NOVA 2 every time one of the bad guys shouts out 'kill that b*stard*'". You actually cringe at that? The word "b*stard" really upsets you? I call bullsh*t, you're a troll, you were just trying to get attention, and you got it. 

      • Eastside Stompers

         I cringe when I hear bad words, I can't help it, and I still think the above trailer should be banned from this site.

      • Thomas

         Then I don't feel bad for you, Troll.

      • EastsideStompers

        I call timeout. My one opinion seems to have caused such a crazy reaction. If I'd known that would happen, I'd never have bothered writing it.

      • Everyone

          Tell Frumius and Dmarcoot to think before they write too. This is an adult forum, cursing is part of that. If you play a mature game, you're gonna get mature language, don't push your views on us.

    • Todd

      Frumius, how long have you been trolling?

  • Greg

     Ha, cool, Apathy, Celph Titled and good ol' B Real, got this song the iPod.

  • Skye629

     Whoa a True Crime ripoff wasn't expecting that this looks promising

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-West/1459215646 John West

    Looks way too incredible to me. Reflection (on rear view mirror), incredible amount of geometry, shadow - it looks better than GTA:San Andreas back in 2004. Its either a fake (end product not looking like this) or have I miss some great advance in technology?

    • Crish

      Maybe. Gameloft said that they wanted to develope later games using the Unreal engine. So probably this is the first one.

  • Dmarcoot

     I'm sorry, I dont have kids, but every parent I know who does would not want there CHILDREN hearing that song. Where did it say anyway where that this site would have that content? A responsible parent cannot even make an educated choice to not allow their child who likes games (the misson of this sit , right?) to enjoy is other non sociopathic content.

    • Jim

       This game is clearly not for kids, so the song shouldn't matter.

    • Sakidd1

       You are clearly a troll, stop trolling! Also, your comments are boring and unoriginal.

  • Bartie

    I'm gonna throw something out there, see what you all think.......unreal engine? I remember hearing that gameloft were working on a new game using the UE, looking at the GFX this could well of been it!

  • Dr strange

    It's a song, with words, on the internet. Get over it.

  • Sakidd1

     pretty.  boring.  unoriginal.

    • Fredrik Jackson

      Why are you commenting that every game is boring and unoriginal? Find something better do to. 

      • Sakidd1

        because it looks boring

  • -NoVa-

     So empty... Feels like a completed required feature and scene checklist without any human feelings.

  • Anto

    Yet another cheap Gameloft ripoff with no taste, no style and none of that magic of the copied original. Sad, really sad.

  • http://twitter.com/Dune_001 Jase Wayne

    kind looks good. Might be first gameloft game in a while I'll buy. Hope it has a good story and in depth gameplay. 

  • H0

    Wow, very good graphics. 

  • Digital-leaf

    Sooo, Gameloft decides that if Gangstar will copy GTA then 9mm will copy True Crime... Arrests, slow motion gunplay, perp grappling, that's all True Crime, Strees of LA and New York City. Gameloft is probably bummed that Activision cancelled True Crime: Hong Kong, otherwise they'd have more to copy for future Gameloft games in this series.

  • Frumius

     Also, when I watch porn, I hate it when there's nudity in it. I get seriously offended when I see a penetration shot. PLEASE CLEAN UP THE PORN!! What if kids were watching it? Please release clean versions of pornography from now on, thank you.

    • Dmarcoot

       I agree, what if CHILDREN stumbled upon a porn site?!? They need to clean up all of those porn websites in order to make them kid friendly.

  • htp24

     Not unlike True Crime: Streets of LA. And speaking of Gangstar, when are they going to fix Miami Vindication?

    • gelas

       couldn't agree more .. I bought miami vindication when it was on sale, and still can't play it till today ..

      • Anonymous

        Plus, Gameloft banned me from their forums just because I was telling them to hurry up.

  • http://twitter.com/NOVAinc Lucas

    Yes, definitely LOOKS like UE, the animations look like gameloft though ;)

    Eager to NOVA 3 announcement, though :)

    @the people complaining about gangstar, they updated it like a month ago, I've already finished it

  • Lamar Taylor

    Too many people making a big fuss over nothing. So what if it is a True Crime clone...if you don't like it, don't buy it.

    I think the graphics look nice and the gameplay looks fun. Im guessing this will play and look great on my iPad 2 so I hope they release this sooner than later.

    I swear people go on the Internet just to complain and be angry. This is just a video game not politics lol.

    • Anonymous

      I've bought a few Gameloft games and they are decent at best.  Usually just nice looking.  Obviously they just blatantly rip-off games.  I think it's pretty understandable people get tired of the same ole formula.  I don't really personally care, but I can understand where people are coming from.  I haven't bought a Gameloft game in a while.. not because they clone games but just because they don't offer the same fun to me as a lot of the smaller indie games do.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000480190394 Callum Rankine

    Well normally when Gameloft release trailers it is when they are about to release the finished game i think they will release it in a couple of weeks at most :D

  • Anonymous

    I refuse to buy any game from Gameloft until Gangstar: Miami Vindication gets fixed.

  • Eastside Stompers

    This game better not have any harsh language! I hate hearing words like
    damn, lame, and hell in video games and movies. Why can't all games be
    rated E, and all movies be G?

      So now you're attempting to be sarcastic or what?

         No, I stand by my morals, I actually cringe when I hear the word 'Bastard' in NOVA 2.

      "Why can't all games be rated E, and all movies be G?"

      Yeah this guy is definitely trolling.

         Eastside is still a fairy, he was offended by the 9mm trailer. What a tool bag.

    • TylerXX

       Hey Eastside, the sound of your piss hitting the urinal sounds feminine.

      • Recruit91

        So uh..... about the game....

    • Cash on Cash

      you are a (). so go f*ck your self 

  • Frumius

    My comment wasn't about the game.  The game is fine.  It's the language in the trailer for it that appears on the front page of this site, which I know kids visit regularly in order to read up on the latest games.  It would not be difficult to write about that game without the profanity, would it?  Think it bothers me, personally?  No.  I can swear every one of you under the table.  I merely point this out for the kids, both mine and my kid's friends, and theirs, who read this site.

    I'm hardly a troll. I'm an active participant on these forums with a forum account I established in 2009, and have over 700 posts about the games written up here (mainly in the F.A.S.T. and Skies of Glory threads, two of this forum's longest threads.)  Perhaps the ones who feel the need to call names are the trolls.

    P.S.  to Touch Arcade:  Why aren't these article comments tied to our forum accounts? One guy above posted as me, the one talking about porn sites. If these comments were tied to our forum accounts, perhaps we  would get fewer trolls and impostors.

    • Everyone

      Are you serious, the foul language in that trailer offended you? I don't want this site censored because of people like you. If you don't like harsh language in video games, then go back to the convent. "The game is fine, It's the language in the trailer that appears
      on the front page of this site, which I know kids visit regularly in
      order to read up on the latest games" You're a moron if you think "kids" own $400 iPhones. This is NOT a kids site, so stop pushing your moral views on the rest of us you panzy.

      • Sway-emo

        A*shole I'm 15 and own a 64gb iPod touch 4th gen an iPad 2 and a f*king iPhone 4. Now who's to say a kid can't afford more than a douche like you? C*nt backup your shi*
