Shadows of the Damned
As the Tokyo Game Show prepares to get under way, we finally get a glimpse of what happens when Shinji Mikami and Suda 51 come together – complete with the sounds of Akira Yamaoka working the score. The action-horror title stars Garcia Hotspur, a hunter of demons who’s “wrath will bring hell to its knees.”

A blurb from the game’s site mentions combining Suda’s punk-rock style with Mikami’s horror designs – the tiny bit of gameplay in the first trailer earnestly looks like Resident Evil 4 plugged into No More Heroes, complete with absinthe vending machine. I’m going to guess that’s what they are going for since both those titles are cited at the start of this announcement trailer.

Take a look after the break and let me know what you think.


  1. They had my purchase once I knew this was Suda51’s and Kojima’s game… and then Akira Yamaoka’s name popped up and I’m ready to pre-order it.

  2. Surely you mean Mikami (a.k.a. The Godfather of Awesome)? I’m very happy that these guys are still out there making games! Also glad to see “Trademark of Grasshopper Manufacture” at the end! Awesome developers deserve to keep their awesome IPs!
