"Creatively, Shank still has a lot to give," said Jamie Cheng, founder of Klei Entertainment. "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."
"We are honored to again partner with the visionary talent of Klei Entertainment,"
"We are honored to again partner with the visionary talent of Klei Entertainment,"said Jamil Moledina, Director, Business Development at EA Partners. "Shank 2 showcases their ability to blend emotionally resonant yet sardonically violent storytelling with pitch perfect controls and art design and confirms EA Partners' strategy of bringing the best independent games simultaneously to all leading digital platforms."
Shank 2 returns with a story of redemption as Shank is forced back into action when his loved ones are put in danger. The game will expand on the originals intuitive combat and control system, while also adding a new arcade-style survival co-op mode that has gamers working together to take down their foes, relying on the environment and weapon pick-ups for survival.
The game will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC in 2012.
