Shadows of the Damned confirmed for June release

Shinji Mikami and Suda 51's psychological action thriller dated

Shinji Mikami has taken to the stage of an in-progress EA event to confirm that Shadows of the Damned will be released worldwide on June 7.


The game is a 'psychological action thriller' from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami and Killer 7 and No More Heroes mastermind Goichi Suda, in development at Grasshopper Games.

A new demonstration of the game at today's event showed lead character Garcia on a mission to rescue his girlfriend from demons using dark and light mechanics.

"[Shadows of the Damned] is our vision of hell, taking gamers on a journey through a demented underworld," said Mikami as he stylishly sipped whiskey on stage. What a dude.

"We're (Suda and himself) both big fans of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, and Shadows of the Damned is similar to that Grindhouse style, with our own punk edge," he added.

"It's really unique and really quite different to any other action horror games."
