We have to admit it: when we posted our run-down of the best new game trailers from E3, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot wasn’t really on our radar.
But the trailer for Ubisoft’s free-to-play dungeon-crawler-cum-tower-defence hybrid is a lot of fun, neatly skewering fantasy conventions, as square-jawed hero Sir Painhammer guides the viewers around his desirable home.
Better still, Ubisoft has just released a blooper reel that shows the characters in unguarded moments during the ‘filming’ of the trailer – and which is almost twice as long as the original.
Now that’s really going the extra mile. We’ve seen actual animated shorts that packed fewer gags than this.
