What's the deal with using Twitter as a venue for big announcements? Geez.
Well, whatever: Grasshopper Manufacture decided to drop the release date for their new highly anticipated project, Shadows of the Damned , via their English-language Twitter feed. As you can see , the horrifying third-person shooter will be ready to go on June 7, and we'd like to assume they're talking about the North American date. It's on their English Twitter channel, after all, and June 7 does fall on a Tuesday. Shadows is the new brainchild of established developers Suda51 ( No More Heroes , Killer7 ) and Shinji Mikami of Resident Evil fame. Believe it or not, this is EA's first venture with a Japanese developer, so that's news in and of itself. As for the game, you will play as demon-slayer Garcia Hotspur, who travels to hell to save his beloved Paula. Suda51 described it as having a "punk rock edge," and let's not forget that the soundtrack has been composed by Akira Yamaoka, who worked on the Silent Hill franchise.
Shadows of the Damned is coming for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and PC and if you missed the official unveiling from last year's Tokyo Game Show, feel free to catch up . Looks promising.
