shadow of the beast release date ps4

Shadow of the Beast has been in release date limbo for as long as we can remember, but Sony's finally got one nailed - and the good news is that it's not too far away. From what we've seen of it, the revived hack and slasher looks great, so really, the only thing that's been missing from this blood-fuelled action title has been a confirmed launch date.

The beast will be unleashed on the 17th May in both North American and Europe, so you'd best get sharpening those claws. What's more, a brand new trailer's been revealed that sheds some light on the title as a whole, so that's well worth watching if you're on the fence with regards to hype.
