The much enhanced follow-up is scheduled to be released on the PSN and PC on February 7th, 2012 for $9.99, and on XBLA a day later for 800 Microsoft Points. The Euro PSN version will also launch on the 8th for €9.99.

Read on for the announcement from EA.

Award-winning independent game developer Klei Entertainment and EA Partners, a division of Electronic Arts Inc., today announced that the highly anticipated 2D action brawler, Shank 2, will be available on the PlayStation Network and PC in North America on February 7, 2012 for $9.99 USD. The game will be available on the Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network Europe on February 8, 2012 for 800 Microsoft Points or €9.99.

Set in a pulp fiction world, Shank 2 puts players back in control of their favorite ex-mobster hitman, Shank. Klei has evolved the combat experience with precise controls, new weapons, smarter enemies, and more advanced combo techniques, all set to the backdrop of beautiful 2D art and animation. Players can put Shank’s trusty arsenal of handguns, chainsaws, grenades, plus all-new weapons to use in order to protect those close to him.

Introducing an all-new Survival Mode, gamers can team up with a friend online or locally, working together to take down hordes of goons in an action-packed, arcade-style brawl. Featuring stunning visuals from Klei’s veteran cartoon director, Jeff Agala, Shank 2 raises the bar even higher for 2D brawlers with art and animation that won Klei multiple awards and nominations, including IGF’s Excellence in Visual Arts nomination, and the Canadian Animator of the Year award for Klei’s lead animator, Aaron Bouthillier.
