EA has announced that it’s to release a sequel to the PSN and XBLA, arcade scroller, Shank.
This time Shank is out to save his loved one’s, although other than the addition of a co-op survival mode, that’s about all we know at the moment.
“Shank 2 isn’t just a reboot of Shank,” EA’s Andy Katkin, “it’s an entirely new game,” while developer, Klei Entertainment’s Jamie Cheng said, “What we did was rip the game apart and reconstruct it to allow us to have more responsive controls and better graphics. We tore our combat system apart … and created new controls to be able to use the enemies’ weapons against themselves.”
Shank 2 is currently due for release sometime in 2012 for PC, PSN and XBLA.
