Suda 51's next title will take us to Hell and back.
Shadows of the Damned is being co-created by No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda and Resident Evil brain Shinji Mikami. You can see the influence of the latter specifically in the game's in over-the-shoulder perspective, which is similar to that of Resident Evil 4. And while man-on-demon combat seems to be the game's true focus, there will be other things to do. The aforementioned press release makes a special mention of "demented puzzles" being incorporated into the game.
== TEASER =="With Shadows of the Damned, gamers will fight for love in the most difficult arena imaginable… hell," said Mikami said in a statement. "Players will find themselves surrounded by demons set on destroying their heart and soul. Only the strong will survive."
Shadows of the Damned is slated for a summer 2011 release on the Xbox 360 and PS3. As Kotaku notes in its announcement article, this game appears to be the very one EA mentioned back in August 2008 when it teased a Suda and Mikami co-created horror title.
