Shank 2 Announced: Coming In Early 2012

Electronic Arts just announced Shank 2. The followup to the downloadable action game Shank will hit the gamernets in the beginning of 2012. It will be released for the PS3, 360 and PC.

"Creatively, Shank still has a lot to give," said Jamie Cheng, founder of Klei Entertainment. "We took the feedback from the community and ran with it, putting our own flavor on every change. For Shank 2, we literally took apart the game and put it back together to push the envelope in combat mechanics, visuals, and 2D animation in games."

Here's the official description of Shank 2:

Shank 2 returns with a story of redemption as Shank, a former mob hitman with a dark and vengeful past, is thrust back into action when the lives of those close to him are endangered. Expanding on the original game's rich and intuitive combat and control system, Shank 2 continues Klei's tradition of making fluid brawling controls and stunningly beautiful visuals that leapfrogs the competition in the 2D side-scrolling genre. The game also introduces an intense new, arcade-style survival co-op mode that has gamers working together to take down their foes, relying on the environment and weapon pick-ups for survival.

I didn't have a chance to play the original Shank, but I'm looking forward to downloading both games and giving them a spin early next year. Check out the official site for more information.
