New Shank 2 Screens Emerge

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Just last month, EA and Klei Entertainment announced that Shank would be receiving a sequel. Just in case you were wondering, the sequel is obviously titled Shank 2.

In addition to the announcement trailer, a second trailer was released last month. Now, we have a batch of screenshots to share with you:

The graphics are amazing in this game. I saw the quick look on giantbomb like 3 weeks ago.

The co-op stuff looks really boring though, you fight of enemy waves in a kind of smash brothers style arena

I picked up the first one when it was on sale the other week. It's pretty fun, but I hope Shank 2 has online co-op.

I liked the first one, but it was way too short and withouth the ability to play co-op online was a huge let down, hopefully there's more creativity (what sequel would be without it?), a longer campagin, and actual online play. Mini-games would be nice too.

XBLA is a definitei creative paradise for different graphical formats.
Love the updated visuals in this, the sequel seems even better than the first so far.

The first one was pretty good so I'll probably play this at some point. Not a day one, though.

After beating Shank, I'm most certainly interested in this sequel.
Really don't understand some of the Shank hate.
It's one of the better XBLA titles out there.

I liked the first game. Playing on hard was a bitch for certain parts though. Looking forward to this
