Shadows of the DAMNED! is a third person action game formed with the partnership of Grasshopper Manufacture (Well known for their niche games such as Killer7 and No More Heroes) and EA Interactive (Known for their even more niche games such as M.U.L.E, Terra Driver and whatever Madden is). The game is set to come out in America for June 21st after being pushed back by two weeks. To lessen the wait, Suda51 and Shinji Mikami (The developers of the game) prepared a rather bizarre (and that’s putting it LIGHTLY) trailer demonstrating some of the gameplay concepts they introduced in the game along with some more gameplay footage. Anyone who can remember as far back as 2006 will remember that Grasshopper released some concept art for a game called Kurayami which seems to have a lot of the concepts from that game introduced into Shadows. The trailer can be viewed after the jump.

Shadows of the Damned is the product of an unusual collaboration between Grasshopper Manufacture (Creators of Killer7 and the No More Heroes series) and EA (the company that EVERYONE knows because they publish Soukyugurentai under the name Terra Diver to the US, making it the first time a Raizing game has made its way to western territories… and EA make a couple of sports games that no-one really knows much about). The game focuses on Garcia Hotspur’s quest to go into the depths of Hell to rescue his girlfriend. Some new concept art from the game was recently released today showing some of the nightmareish monsters from the game including monsters with minotaurs clouded in electricity, Zombies with exoskeletons and a guy with a cage round his face. See the full roster after the jump.
