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.

Airport 51 Exists

Airport 51
While many of us having been enjoying No More Heroes 2 since the Winter, many more poor European souls had to wait for the chance to slice and dice their way to the top of the assassin ranks again. As if to offer some sympathy however, those in London have a chance to visit and shop at an recreation of Travis’ favorite clothing outlet, Airport 51.

From May 28 until June 4, Chateau Roux’s independent shop based in Carnaby Street has been rebranded as the clothing store from the game, where clothing endorsed by Suda 51 waits to bite at the wallet.

I have a hunch that, much like in the game, I couldn’t afford to shop there – but if anyone overseas wants to send me a Bizarre Jelly 5 t-shirt out of love, we could probably be BFF.

Catch some images after the break.
