EA's slapped a June 7th release date on the grindhouse-inspired game, creating a horror double-header alongside Alice: Madness Returns.

Speaking at GDC, both Suda51 and Shinji Mikami fleshed out some of the gameplay details behind Shadows Of The Damned. The health-system is alcohol based, allowing protagonist Garcia Hotspur to recover his health by drinking booze. The character is also armed with shape shifting ex-demon named Johnson. Johnson can occupy the shapes of all sorts of weapons, including rifles and pistols. Uh-huh.

The duo are billing the game as a "psychological action thriller". It wasn't exactly what we had in mind when the partnership was announced, but we could settle for some Tarantino-inspired Grindhouse action. So sure, why not?
