EA and developer Klei Entertainment have announced a sequel to last year’s beat-em-up, Shank. You’ll never guess what it’s called? Shank 2! Amazing, I know.
"Creatively, Shank still has a lot to give," said Klei Entertainment’s Jamie Cheng. "We took the feedback from the community and ran with it, putting our own flavor on every change. For Shank 2, we literally took apart the game and put it back together to push the envelope in combat mechanics, visuals, and 2D animation in games."
Shank 2 is all about redemption, as former mob hitman Shank jumps into action once more when the lives of those close to him are endangered. The 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up sequel also introduces a new survival co-op mode.
You’ll be able to download Shank 2 from the digital distribution platform of your choice in early 2012.
