Shank 2 Celebrates Release Date with Gameplay Footage


Shank 2 will be available on XBLA and PSN in North America on February 7th and February 8th in Europe. Klei Entertainment decided to add some spice to the announcement by providing another uncut gameplay video.

Set in a pulp fiction world, Shank 2 puts players back in control of their favorite ex-mobster hitman, Shank. Klei has evolved the combat experience with precise controls, new weapons, smarter enemies, and more advanced combo techniques, all set to the backdrop of beautiful 2D art and animation. Players can put Shank’s trusty arsenal of handguns, chainsaws, grenades, plus all-new weapons to use in order to protect those close to him. Introducing an all-new Survival Mode, gamers can team up with a friend online or locally, working together to take down hordes of goons in an action-packed, arcade-style brawl.

If you need a little music for this celebration, you could try listening to the theme. Want to take it with you? You can download it and put it on your music device and start an excitement party.
