Shank trailer is beautiful, bloody

EA sticks out a brutal trailer for Shank

Shank was one of the most promising games to come out of last year's Penny Arcade Expo, and it looks like it's shaping up to be a fantastic side-scrolling action title.

The game is being developed by Klei Entertainment, the studio behind the fiendishly addictive N+.

God of War series writer Marianne Krawczyk is writing the story so expect bloody revenge and plenty of shouting.
