Tokyo Game Show. Video game heaven. Adam Dodd has been chatting about this mystery horror game being worked on for a while now. He even dedicated an entire epic article about the “Game That Could Redefine Horror”. Well after FOREVER of waiting, it’s here. Shadows Of The Damned. Check out the trailer below.
The game is being created from 3 masterminds. Executive director Suda51 (director of No More Heroes), creative producer Shinji Mikami (director of Resident Evil) and music composer Akira Yamaoka (sound director of Silent Hill). Doesn’t get much better than that. The game is looking to be released next summer on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Head past the break for more info and screens. In Shadows Of The Damned you play a demon hunter who must save his lady seemingly from hell, by fighting darkness with light. Sound familiar? Like, Splatterhouse meets Alan Wake meets Dante’s Inferno? Not even close. I would say closer to Resident Evil meets The Darkness.
Your character known as Garcia gets his love stolen away from him by the demons he has pissed off and he must rescue her. Though he is a tough total badass, he still must fight demons in hell, which would be tough for anyone really. The game promises ‘demented’ puzzles, lots of sweet weapons, sick monsters and lots of scary heart pounding action. And I don’t doubt that at all.
“We are excited to finally take the cover off our latest project and invite gamers from around the globe to experience this new, warped world we have created,” said Goichi Suda, CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture. “By partnering with EA, a publisher that truly shares our commitment to quality and innovation, we have been able to develop Shadows of the Damned according to our ambitious vision while creating an entertainment property we believe will appeal to a global audience.”
“With Shadows of the Damned, gamers will fight for love in the most difficult arena imaginable … hell,” said Shinji Mikami, Creative Producer of Shadows of the Damned. “Players will find themselves surrounded by demons set on destroying their heart and soul. Only the strong will survive.”
