Tigertron released a new trailer for its underwater PlayStation 4 and PSVR adventure game Jupiter & Mars during Sony PlayStation’s E3 Showcase Preshow.
The story-focused trailer tells of a tribe of whales called The Elders who serve as the guides in the game. Also, Tigertron announced that Jupiter & Mars would be playable for the first time in North America at E3’s premiere indie game showcase, The MIX on Wednesday, June 13.

“For a trailer that debuted during Sony’s E3 press conference and simultaneously shown on movie screens across the country as a part of Sony’s E3 Experience, we wanted to do something a bit different and more provocative,” said Tigertron’s Creative Director James Mielke. “Using a piece from of our composer Jonathan Atkinson’s original score as the backdrop, we brought the game’s story and setting to the forefront. Observant viewers may even get a hint of the setting of the final level in the game.”
Jupiter & Mars puts players in the role of dolphins Jupiter and her companion, Mars, as they explore five distinct “biomes,” such as tropical islands and sunken underwater cities. With the help of a group of ancient whales called The Elders, Jupiter and Mars navigate a future Earth where humanity has disappeared, forcing the dolphins to confront and solve the after-effects of man’s industrial legacy. Set in spectacular oceanic environments, Jupiter & Mars is an audio/visual feast for the senses that aims to entertain gamers worldwide and inspire the video gaming community with its story and message.
