Long before No More Heroes 3 arrived on current generation Xbox platforms, Grasshopper Manufacture released the action-adventure title Shadows of the Damned on multiple consoles including the Xbox 360.

Now, in a surprise announcement, the developer has revealed it will release a remaster of the same game. It's currently in development and is coming soon. No platforms have been announced at this stage, but more will be revealed at a special Grasshopper "Direct" broadcast next week.

In the meantime, here's some PR about it. You can also check out the amusing but graphic skit in the video above, featuring Goichi "Suda51" Suda in the background.

"Originally released in June 2011, Shadows of the Damned invited gamers to assume the role of Garcia, a hard-as-nails, leather-clad, motorcycle-riding professional demon hunter who finds his true love kidnapped by vengeance-seeking demons.

As he explores the furthest reaches of the netherworld, Garcia battles through Hell and back, with danger and turmoil around every corner. Gamers will find themselves challenged by demented puzzles and thrust into gruesome battles with vile and deformed creatures that can only come from the darkest recesses of Hell. More details will be revealed about the remaster at Grasshopper Direct next week!"

Once again, more details about this upcoming release will be revealed next week via the official YouTube broadcast. Notably, the online servers for the original Xbox 360 version were actually taken offline earlier this year.
