Shadows of the Damned delayed to June 21

Suda 51 and Shinji Mikami's hell-bound action thriller collaboration for PS3 and Xbox 360 gets pushed back two weeks.

Judgment Day has been postponed a fortnight. Electronic Arts has confirmed that Shadows of the Damned will miss its previously announced June 7 release date, now landing in stores on June 21.

Johnson (left) and Garcia team up to battle the forces of evil.

Shadows of the Damned tells the story of Garcia Hotspur, who goes on a trip to hell to save his true love, Paula. His travelling companion on the long, hard road through hell is a foul-mouthed demonic skull named Johnson that can morph into a variety of guns, but is also effective as a torch.

The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 action game is not the first collaboration between Suda 51's Grasshopper Manufacture studio and Shinji Mikami. The pair previously worked together when Suda's Killer 7 was published internationally by Capcom, with Mikami assisting on the game's story and serving as producer. Individually, Suda garnered acclaim for the No More Heroes series of games, while Mikami has been instrumental in the success of the Resident Evil franchise, producing the PlayStation original, as well as the critically acclaimed revamp of the franchise, Resident Evil 4.

Mikami and Suda aren't the only notable names attached to Shadows of the Damned. The game will also have a soundtrack composed by Akira Yamaoka, who created the score for the Silent Hill series.

I don't know what anyone on here is talking about. Am i the only one that thinks this game looks really bad...not just bad but REALLY BAD. Suggestion: Postpone it for 5-6 more years.

Boy oh boy. This game is gonna kick all kinds of ass. 2 weeks is no big deal, I'm a bit of a slowpoke myself but I'll be picking this one up for sure once I'm done with the titles I have on me.

Game looks promising, want to see more footage. And I don't mind waiting if they it's what they need to bring it closer to perfection.

before watching this video, i didnt know the gameplay was like improved re4/re5. good thing is it looks improved and the bad thing is it looks so cheap. i liked re4 alot, re5 less but this game looks weaker... nice colors but... i dont think it looks good after undying ( its style is close to that imo )

I'm actually glad about this because I didn't have the money to buy it when it was first coming out.

I can live with that. I'll just have to upgrade my own "boner" until then.

This game is probably the only single player game I'm incredibly excited about, it's kinda like a more awesome version of Dante's Inferno... Not that big a deal having to wait a couple weeks, not the kind of delay Duke Nukem Forever got...

I wasn't too interested in this game, but the names attached to it make it a lot more interesting.

@Rayzakk But what specific aspect of this game pollutes your mind? Please provide context so we can better understand your views.

Because someone's an adult doesn't mean you need to pollute your mind. That's the opposite of grown up. If you think this is your kind of thing then go ahead. When I say we I mean no one needs this. If you want to put this kind of stuff in your mind no ones stopping you.

I'm okay with a 2-week delay, I'm probably going to be gaming with NHL 11 until well after the playoffs are over :)

@Rayzakk While I don't think the game looks that good anyway, I don't see what the big deal is if the game is going against your faith. If you truly believe in your religion, no form of media (including games) should change that.

Great another blasphemis game. We don't need this but the sad thing is people seem to want this sort of thing. Thumbs down.

I can't wait for this title. It also comes out the first day of summer so I would really want to play it on that date.
