Betrayed by the only family he ever knew and left for dead it’s up to Shank to seek revenge for the death of his beloved at the hands of the underworld’s deadliest assassins. Utilizing his knowledge of gang warfare and weaponry Shank must battle his way through the criminal underground in order to seek revenge against the people for bringing his world crashing down around him.

Game Play

Shank immerses gamers in a side-scrolling, highly cinematic revenge story. With the ability to string together endless combos of mayhem and destruction and an array of blood-spilling weapons at your disposal, Shank seeks to reboot the 2D brawler and take it to a level of production never before seen.

Utilizing a unique 2D art style featuring diverse settings, unique visual effects, and the most fluid animation seen to date, Shank stands apart from its brawler counterparts and stands out in a crowd.
