Shank 2 launch trailer is full of ultraviolent action

A lot of fantastic games came out this week, but there’s yet another one that may have slipped past your radar or you just forgot about. Extremely bloody and violent 2D side-scrolling beat ’em up Shank 2 is this week’s downloadable title on PC, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. EA released a launch trailer for Shank 2, and it displays all the ultraviolent goodness you’d expect.

The improved, responsive controls and upgraded visuals are boasted while Shank stylishly beheads people, smashes faces in and throws enemies into giant saw blades. As you do, of course. The trailer also gives you a pretty good look at the all-new multiplayer survival mode. All things considered, Shank 2 is looking like a pretty great package for only $10, wouldn’t you say?
