Shank 2 release date announced

Digital brawler hits PSN, Xbox Live and PC early next month

Electronic Arts will release 2D brawler sequel Shank 2 in early February.


Announced last September, the game will be available on the PSN and PC in North America on February 7 for $9.99. It'll hit Xbox Live Arcade and the European PSN the following day for €9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points (£6.85).

Here's the official blurb:

Shank 2 returns with a story of redemption as Shank, a former mob hitman with a dark and vengeful past, is thrust back into action when the lives of those close to him are endangered. Expanding on the original game's rich and intuitive combat and control system, Shank 2 continues Klei's tradition of making fluid brawling controls and stunningly beautiful visuals that leapfrogs the competition in the 2D side-scrolling genre.

The game also introduces an intense new, arcade-style survival co-op mode that has gamers working together to take down their foes, relying on the environment and weapon pick-ups for survival.
