Composer Akira Yamaoka has given hope to those who loved the criminally ignored Shadows of the Damned, revealing that he's thinking about a potential sequel and Electronic Arts would be up for it. 

"I’m thinking of a sequel, actually," he told Eurogamer. "I can’t tell you here, but clearly I’d like to."

When asked whether EA would actually back a sequel, he tried to be vague before ostensibly confirming it would: "Probably ... Well, yes."

Shadows of the Damned had its flaws and could have done with some damn quality assurance, but it was nonetheless one of 2011's most shamelessly entertaining adventures. I'd love to see more of Garcia Hotspur and Johnson, and if EA's willing to take the risk again, I'll be totally up for it.

Review: Shadows of the Damned

A demon with a goat's head is riding a horse that defecates pure darkness. Then the demon eats the horse's heart, grows to the size of a ten-story building, eats the rest of the horse and proceeds to urinate more darkness into a gigantic fountain.  That's just the first boss.  Welcome to Shadows of the Damned.more

Another silly dev diary for Shadows of the Damned

There has been a lot of media for Shadows of the Damned lately, but this -- this is what I was patiently waiting for all along. It's a follow-up to the video from a couple months back that gave Suda51 and Shinji Mikami incredible new voices. I desperately hope this becomes an industry-wide trend.more

Liberation Maiden Sin probably isn't ever getting localized, but we can always hope. The visual novel based on Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shooter is definitely coming to PlayStation Vita, though. That's happening in Japan this summer.
