Lurid swear-em-up Shadows of the Damned—a 2011 action-adventure collaboration between Suda51 and Shinji Mikami—is getting a remaster. It was introduced yesterday—amid a deluge of Summer season Game Fest bulletins—within the type of a trailer by which principal character Garcia Hotspur arrives on the developer’s places of work and shoots an unarmed man within the head. I feel Nintendo introduced that new Zelda the identical means.

In the event you’re unaware, Shadows of the Damned is a splashy, bizarre third-person shooter that is been trapped on the PS3 and Xbox 360 because it launched 12 years in the past. It is loud and brash and zany—your signature gun is named “The Boner,” which ought to provide you with some concept of the aircraft we’re working on right here—and whereas it wasn’t a smash hit in its day, it is occupied a sacred house within the hearts of followers as a cult basic for over a decade.

Factor is, after all, that the devs at Grasshopper Manufacture have not stated something about what platforms the remaster goes to be launched for. We’ll be taught that, hopefully, on the Grasshopper Direct on June 14. In fact, we nonetheless do not know which platforms the studio’s Lollipop Chainsaw remake goes to launch on, so possibly Grasshopper will hold all of it a  pleasant secret till the final potential second.

You’ve got gotta suppose it will hit PC although, right? Just about every thing does, nowadays, and the studio’s been fairly good about placing its video games on god’s personal platform over the course of its final a number of releases. Until Sony has money-hatted the devs into an unique—which might in all probability nonetheless hit PC a 12 months or two after launch—I am unable to see any cause why Grasshopper would not put the Shadows of the Damned remaster on PC.

We’ll discover out quickly, optimistically. Within the meantime, can somebody prod Suda about releasing Flower, Solar, and Rain on a platform moreover the PS2 and Nintendo DS? All this gunplay and vivid violence is nicely and good, however a few of us (me) simply wish to remedy maths puzzles at a tropical resort threatened by terrorists and time loops, you already know? .
