Sacred Citadel 2D brawler announced by Deep Silver, Sacred 3 coming 2013

It's been a long while since Sacred 2: Fallen Angel debuted on the gaming market back in 2008, and we haven't heard a whole lot about the series since then. Today, however, we got new information regarding two new games in the series including an offshoot, and a proper sequel.

They released the trailer above today announcing Sacred Citadel, a 2D brawler set in the Sacred universe, but with a decidedly more cartoonish tone. The game features two-dimensional beat-em-up gameplay with giant bosses and vehicular combat with three playable characters which can also be used in the game's three player co-op.

They also used this opportunity to drop the small detail that Sacred 3 will be arriving in 2013. Sacred Citadel is also scheduled for release in 2013 on PC/Steam, Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Network.

    YOU may have not heard much about sacred 2 since it's release in 2008. But I am reminded every week when my RSS feed is hit with the same series of articles about it for some reason. Along with the xbox 360 RPG revival from way back.

    Citadel looks pretty cool, I'll have to give it a shot. Not sure what to think about Sacred 3 since I've only played a little bit of Sacred 2 before, and I don't even remember whether I liked it or not.
