What happens when you take famed game director, Suda 51, and industry stalwart, Shinji Mikami, and put them together in a blender? Well, if you do it literally, you get a bloody mess, but if you're talking figuratively, you get Shadows of the Damned.
The dark themed third-person action shooter, coming your way in June, is a collaborative effort from the two legendary Japanese developers and we caught up with composer Akira Yamaoka recently to talk about the title, what we can expect as gamers from it, where they got their inspirations from and how they designed the game with the Western audience in mind.
Shadows of the Damned is scheduled for a June 21st and June 24th release in North America and Europe respectively.
