Electronic Arts and Klei Entertainment announced today that the highly anticipated downloadable action game, Shank, will be available for download on August 24 for PlayStation Network and August 25 for Xbox LIVE Arcade. Shank blends classic side-scrolling action gameplay and unique stylized 2D art direction with a revenge story penned by award-winning game writer Marianne Krawczyk.
“We committed ourselves completely during the development of Shank and it’s been extremely gratifying to see the support we’ve received from the gaming community and press,” said Jamie Cheng, CEO of Klei Entertainment. “Watching people play and seeing them smile; it’s fantastic to see them latch onto the things we love most about Shank — the art, the story and of course the gameplay.”
Shank will be available for download beginning August 24, 2010 on the PlayStation Network for $14.99, and August 25, 2010 on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points.
