Travel to exotic places, meet strange and interesting creatures, and punch them in the face. That’s Zeno Clash 2 in a nutshell, picking up right where the original left off. The first-person brawler is unique, to say the least, and available today for 1200 MSP in an effort to start your weekend off with some bare-knuckle fisticuffs.
Though Zeno Clash 2 continues onward from the first game in the series, it boasts a few improvements. There’s the fleshed out combat system, more environmental variety and some spruced up visuals, pumping additional power into the surreal aesthetic. If you never got around to playing Zeno Clash, piecing together the series’ bizarre universe will be no easy task. However, developer ACE Team has taken the necessary steps to allow new players a chance to catch up on the unique story.

Keen to get their game announcement in before E3 2012 starts, publishers Atlus have teamed up with developers ACE Team and revealed that Zeno Clash II is heading to XBLA early next year. First-person melee brawler Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition, was released on XBLA back in 2010 and the sequel is promised to be “bigger, bolder and better in every way”.
Players will take on the role of lead character Ghat and explore the open-world of Zenozoik. Fans of the original will be pleased to hear that most of the characters, enemies, and items from the first game will return along with some new character designs, imaginative weapons and RPG elements that allow players to gain more strength and master defense. Also new to the game will be Ghat’s sister Rimat who can be controlled by a second player in drop in-drop out online co-operative multiplayer.
