EA has announced that Shank will be released on 24th August on PlayStation Network and 25th August on Xbox Live Arcade.

The game will cost 1200 Microsoft Points on XBLA or $14.99 on PSN.

Shank is made by developer Klei and caught Eurogamer's eye back at GDC.

The idea's fairly standard: you're macho murderer in a 2D platform world, and you're going to cause a hell of a lot of carnage. The exciting part seems to be the execution, which is crisp, vibrant and powerful.
