has released a new gameplay movie and five fresh screenshots
from Shank 2
, the 2D action brawler sequel developed by Klei Entertainment
and due to be available in North America on February 7th and across Europe on February 8th, via Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC. 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. 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.
