Dead to Rights: Retribution video reminds me: Get a dog

In this latest developer diary for Namco Bandai’s upcoming Dead to Rights: Retribution, Volatile Games shows off the game’s combat.

According to the game’s combat designer, the main feature of the game is to allow players to have the choice to use hand-to-hand combat, ranged weapons, or the dog (Shadow) to take out enemies. It’s totally up tol you. But here’s the thing — that dog looks like he’s no joke. We’re unclear if the game features a “pooper scooper” mechanic where you have to clean up after Shadow, but it looks like it might be worth it. 

Dead to Rights: Retribution is scheduled to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year. Namco Bandai, please considering giving away patches of dog fur as a pre-order bonus.
