First Saints Row 2 trailer released

Smatterings of dialogue and squiggly black lines don't really sell it to us though...

We've seem some odd teaser trailers in our time, but the first for THQ's sequel Saints Row 2 really wins the weird - and rubbish - award we've just made up.

Devoid of gameplay and even cinematics, the teaser features dialogue and squiggly black lines against a purple-sun background that eventually forms itself into the Saints Row 2 logo.

Is it, perhaps, some belated April Fool? Join us in our bewilderment by watching the trailer in our video player.

Saints Row 2 developer Volition reckons its gangster sequel will be competitive with GTA IV.

"The only thing I know about GTA is what I've read. From what I've read it seems like they're going in a more realistic direction. For us it's more about almost a hyper-realistic quality, over-the-top, all about these memorable moments", a studio rep said in March.
