Shadows Of The Damned Pushed Back A Couple Weeks
Well, it's probably better not to directly challenge inFamous 2, even if the latter is only an exclusive title.
Grasshopper Manufacture's Shadows of the Damned was expected to release on the same day as Sucker Punch's highly anticipated sequel (June 7), but EA has just confirmed a delay for Shinji Mikami and Suda 51's new project: it'll come out a couple weeks later on June 21. At that time, we can take on the role of demon hunter Garcia Hotspur, who travels to hell to save his one true love, Paula. He'll be accompanied by a cool, semi-evil skull named Johnson who will morph into weapons for Garcia. And with the likes of industry veterans Mikami (Resident Evil 4, Vanquish, etc.) and Suda 51 (No More Heroes, Killer 7), we figure this dark game has a ton of promise. Hopefully, that added flair will set it apart from other third-person shooters on the market today.
Yeah, multiplatform titles usually aren't intimidated by exclusives (unless they're called Halo or Gran Turismo or maybe God of War), but even so, June 21 sounds better to us. ...gotta have inFamous 2.
