Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil, Vanquish) and Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) have teamed up with Suda51 (Killer7, No More Heroes) at Grasshopper Manufacture to make Shadows of the Damned:
Right now it looks a bit like the video game equivalent of a crazy Robert Rodriguez movie. The game's official website describes it this way:
Venture deep into a hyper-demented re-imagining of hell as demon hunter Garcia Hostpur on a mission to rescue the love of his life. Defeat the armies of darkness with the power of the light and the help of the trusty Johnson, a former demon with the ability to transform into an array of viscious weapons. Shadows of the Damned delivers shocking and unique gameplay experiences that include over-the-top action, grandiose boss battles, demented puzzles, grotesque enemies, heart- pounding moments and pychotic imagery.
The release date is currently listed as 6/7/11. Is this on anyone else's radar?
(And no, we don't talk about the other thread.)
