At the Electronic Arts Pre-Tokyo Game Show Press Event, the company officially unveiled the collaborative project between Shinji Mikami and Suda 51: Shadows of the Damned.
Shadows of the Damned follows Garcia Hotspur, a demon hunter, as he ventures into the underworld to retrieve is beloved from the demonic inhabitants' grasp. By himself, he can create quite a lot of chaos for the undead. Garcia is not alone, however; he is accompanied by a former demon which can transform into a multitude of destructive weaponry though which much destruction can be wrought.
The game's press release states that players will have to use light and darkness together in order to face the onslaught of the undead and pass through a variety of unique puzzles and locales located within the City of the Damned.
Shadows of the Damned is a major collaboration between Shinji Mikami, Suda 51, and Akira Yamaoka. Suda 51, the Director behind Killer 7 and the No More Heroes franchise, is the Executive Director, and his developer Grasshopper Manufacture is the team behind the title. Shinji Mikami, Director of Resident Evil 4 and Platinum Games' Vanquish, is the Creative Designer. Akira Yamaoka, the Audio Director for the Silent Hill series until recently, is involved with the game's music. This collaboration is certainly something not to be missed.
