Shank 2’s survival multiplayer character Karina isn’t just a re-skin of Shank

By  •  News

In our recent interview with Shank 2‘s Jamie Cheng, he pointed out that Karina isn’t just the character icon next to Shank’s in the Survival multiplayer. Roughly half the character skins unlockable in Survival Multiplayer, of which there are a total of 16, are Karina characters and the other half are Shank. Shank-alikes play like Shank with his weaponry but have different stats, same with Karina’s. In fact, some of Karina’s weaponry won’t even be usable in the single player at all (since you don’t play as Karina),  so the only way to experience it is to play as Karina. This is pretty awesome news, hopefully it will encourage people to play the multiplayer and try out Karina’s gameplay. Read More

Klei Entertainment sets the stage for Shank 2

Many years ago a man and his two handy blades, jagged though they were, turned an entire crime organization on its head. Sometimes, when there was another ethereal controller being beside him, he was joined by his fellow anti-gang affiliate. This man, named Shank, armed only with twin shanks (and meat cleavers, and a katana, and a chainsaw, shotgun, SMG and dual pistols) brought frenetic brawler action complete with weapon fast-switching and combos along with crisp art and high-tier animation quality, and it appears that Klei Entertainment aims to give him shank-tion to do it again. We here at XBLAFans were lucky enough to score an interview with Klei Entertainment’s CEO, Jamie Cheng. Take a look at what he had to say after the jump. Read More
