Electronic Arts used its pre-Tokyo Game Show conference to start off with a bang in announcing Shadows of the Damned. The title is apparently going to be a psychological thriller that is being developed by Suda51 and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil). As for the plot, EA says gamers will follow a “demon hunter deep into a hyper-twisted re-imagining of hell where he must rescue the love of his life by defeating the armies of darkness with the power of the light.”
The main protagonist is Garcia, who is described as a “hard-as-nails, leather-clad, motorcycle-riding professional demon hunter.” He should not be confused with Joe Garcia, a journalist here at PlayStation University. As you fight your way through the game’s action scenes, you will also be “challenged by demented puzzles and thrust into gruesome battles with vile and deformed creatures that can only come from the darkest recesses of hell.”
