Shadows of the Damned coming out June 7

Shadows of the Damned, the punk rock/psychological thriller collaboration between Goichi Suda (Suda51) and Shinji Mikami (Vanquish, Resident Evil 4), is getting an unexpectedly early release for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on June 7. The June 7 release date was officially announced during a recent GDC press conference. However, since the title was first revealed during EA’s Tokyo Game Show 2010 press conference, the publisher has remained mostly silent about the project.

Shadows of the Damned follows Garcia Hotspur on a trip to hell in search of his true love. As expected, all kinds of frightening evil will stand in his way. Design for the game’s mechanics are being handled by Shinji Mikiami, while Goichi Suda takes point in regards to the title’s style and art direction. Suda's studio, Grasshopper Manufacturer, is the team behind the game.

  • IceBlueKirby - March 2, 2011 11:48 p.m.

    The story sounds eerily familiar, but I'm still interested in this game. Doubt it'll be a day one buy, but after some reviews go up I'll see just how badly I need to own this game.
  • DF344 - March 2, 2011 10:34 p.m.

    Garcia Hotspur? Awesome!
  • DarthPunk - March 2, 2011 10:25 p.m.

    @ Sinsational. Did you even watch the trailer? The gameplay looks nothing like either DMC or Dante's Inferno
  • FrozenImplosion - March 2, 2011 10:19 p.m.

    Sorry for the triple post but this actually reminds me SO MUCH of Dark Sector
  • FrozenImplosion - March 2, 2011 10:18 p.m.

    After watching the video again I think this might just be an auto-pick-up
  • EdDeRs1 - March 2, 2011 10:16 p.m.

    this is gona be so FUCKING EPIC! add an Iron Maiden soundtrack and well, all that can be said is... HAIL TO THE KING BABY!
  • FrozenImplosion - March 2, 2011 10:16 p.m.

    Looks really cool, the visuals remind me of Singularity a bit, idk why. Probably will wait until a couple reviews come up. As long as it's not the next Damnation then I think this will be a buy :D
  • icedoesnthelp - March 2, 2011 10:12 p.m.

    WHAT!? No PC? sigh.
  • Sinsational - March 2, 2011 10:11 p.m.

    Meh. Mix DMC with Dante's Inferno and you get this. Pass.
