5th Cell, known for developing DS million-sellers like Drawn to Life and Scribblenauts, unveiled its first title for a home console: Hybrid, a third-person shooter built on Valve's Source Engine and coming to Xbox Live Arcade some time next year.

Hybrid centers around two warring factions, Paladin (human) and Variant (alien), the former running a resistance force that hopes to kick the latter out of its cities. The game's teaser site shares journal entries from soldiers representing both groups -- the Variant soldier fears that he might actually pity the humans he's fighting.

This trailer unfortunately doesn't show any gameplay or demonstrate how Hybrid will stand out from other shooters, but 5th Cell has a reputation for putting out titles with creative concepts, so I expect we'll hear that the studio has something unique planned for this so far seemingly routine shooter.
