EA has finally confirmed what Suda51 and Shinji Mikami have been working on for them at the Tokyo Game Show. The game is called “Shadows of the Damned”, and apparently, it’s a “psychological action thriller”. The protagonist is a dude called Garcia Hotspur, whose true love is abducted by demons and dragged to the underworld. He then goes traipsing off to hell to bring her back.
“This game has a punk rock edge to it,” said Resident Evil 4 director Mikami. “You can see Suda’s trademark flair and style everywhere in this game. There are lots of light moments as well.
“But of course, you can see a lot of influence from Mikami-san in the core gameplay mechanics,” No More Heroes creator Suda51 said. “This game is really intense; however you also see some light moments as well. It’s a very dark game. And it’s one of the greatest games I’ve ever worked on in my lifetime.”
Shadows of the Damned will be released summer 2011 for the PS3 and 360. Here’s the announcement trailer for you to peruse:
