Klei Entertainment and EA Partners have announced that Shank 2 will be available on the PSN and PC in North America on February 7, 2012 for $9.99. The game will be available on the Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network Europe on February 8, 2012 for 800 Microsoft Points or € 9.99. The original Shank was excellent and this one looks to be even better.
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.
