Whoever did the editing on this particular clip did a fantastic job. It’s almost uncanny how well the upbeat, happy melody of “Wimoweh” goes with the fast paced violence and savage combat sequences. The music brings a certain playfulness to the carnage, which fits perfectly with dark humor that Borderlands is known for. Throughout the video, we catch glimpses of the new characters laying waste to various monsters – which gives us a bit more insight into what their respective abilities will be like in actual gameplay.
If the game is even half as fun as this trailer is to watch — which we’re pretty sure it is — Borderlands 2 will likely be one of the best releases of the year.
