Atlus has announced Zeno Clash 2, due out on PC, PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade early 2013.
The ACE Team developed sequel to the indie first-person melee brawler features co-operative multiplayer and an open world.
You play Ghat, and are free to explore the world. Characters and enemies have seen a visual improvement, and there are new weapons and items.
The first-person brawler mechanics have been refined, with the lock-on mechanic improved. There's new RPG elements, too. The multiplayer is drop-in/drop-out online co-op. Ghat is joined by his sister Rimat.
ACE Team co-founder Andres Bordeu said: "The world of Zenozoik is one of wild dreams and wilder nightmares. This is part of the reason we are working on Zeno Clash 2, to give players the opportunity to explore Zenozoik with a friend via online cooperative multiplayer, turning those moments of wonder and awe into a shared adventure.
"We will make certain that going back and forth between solo and cooperative play preserves the consistency and impact of the narrative experience, while still allowing friends easily drop in and out of the game's fulfilling exploration and visceral melee combat."
