Suda51 and Shinji Mikami's Shadows of the Damned was just delayed a few weeks, giving us enough time for another hands-on preview. You play as Garcia, a demon hunter, who is on a quest to find his girlfriend who has been dragged to hell. Typical, right? In our latest preview of Shadows of the Damned we got to see first hand just how many ways Garcia can take out enemies.
"The main gameplay element I came away with from this latest hands-on session was how many different ways Garcia will have to eliminate the darkness, even if some of those situations are only temporary. One example involves lamps, which look like antiquated versions of heating lamps you see in patio areas in restaurants. I’d use Johnson to light the lamp, but I would also need to take out specific enemies in order to get rid of the darkness permanently from that area. Otherwise, the darkness would come back in less than a minute, and I would have to repeat the process all over again."
