Shank 2 stabs its way onto PSN, PC, and XBLA in February

Having practically forgotten that a sequel to Shank was being made, news of the follow-up's looming arrival is a pleasant surprise. Shank 2 will first be hitting PlayStation Network and PC in North America on February 7, followed by a release on Xbox Live Arcade and European PSN a day later.

It's also nice to hear that Electronic Arts and Klei Entertainment have resisted the urge to charge more than $9.99 for this game. Good on them! They could've easily gotten away with a higher asking price.

I was starting to think the beat-'em-up genre in its entirety would no longer appeal to me outside of nostalgic favorites, but Shank was a good deal of fun. Klei has seemingly addressed the control issues I had with the original game, so Shank 2 should be very appealing indeed.
