Shadows of the Damned pushed back

Mikami/Suda horror gets two week delay.

Shadows of the Damned, EA's forthcoming action horror romp, has had its release date pushed back by a fortnight.

No More Heroes man Suda51, who's co-developing with Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, announced its new 21st June US date at a San Francisco preview event earlier this week.

There's no official word on a new UK date, but Amazon is currently listing the game for 24th June.

Suda didn't give a reason for the delay but it may well have something to do with the fact that its original 7th June launch date is the same day as publicity-vacuum E3 kicks off.

Eurogamer's Tom Bramwell recently went hands-on with the game, calling it "great fun – familiar yet enterprising and characterful."
