Shank 2 Release Date Announced

EA and Klei Entertainment have announced that Shank 2 will release on February 8th 2012 on PSN, XBLA and PC. The title will cost 800 MS points on XBLA and £7.99/ €9.99 on PSN and PC.

Shank 2 is said to have more precise controls, an addition of new weapons, smarter enemy AI and an increased range of combos, while maintaining the series 2D style. Shank 2 will also feature a new Survival mode which will feature a co op option, both local and online, and allow players to take on waves of enemies.


The original Shank scored a good 7/10 in its review, where Peter describing it as a ” fun brawler with sumptuous cartoon visuals and over-the-top violence.” Though he did concede that Shank did have “numerous flaws.” Let’s hope those flaws have been addressed in the sequel.

  1. The original Shank was excellent. Looking forward to playing the demo of this one :)

  2. I found the original visually stunning but very repetitive. Even in the short time it took to complete I grew tired of the formula. Hopefully they mix up the gameplay a bit more.
