Disney Interactive/Propaganda Games have released a new trailer for the Tron Legacy tie-in video game Tron Evolution at E3. The game will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the PC, with portable versions on Nintendo DS and PSP, and a multiplayer version, Tron: Evolution Battle Grids for the Wii. The cinematic footage almost looks as cool as the movie. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

A trailer for a tie-in videogame is a lot more relevant when we’re discussing a Tron picture than would normally be the case. The most obvious reason is that Tron was, of course, set within a virtual world and as such shares a lot of aesthetic and even generic qualities with videogames. Beyond that, there’s been a lot of stylistical flow between the first Tron film and the graphic design of videogames over the last couple of decades and also, most specifically to Tron Legacy, director Joseph Kosinski had previously created some TV spots for Halo 3 and Gears of War.
After the break you can see a trailer for Tron Evolution, the tie-in game to next winter’s Tron Legacy movie. There’s a clear through line in the design, from film to game – clearer even than from original Tron to this sequel.
