The surreal visuals and first-person melee of Zeno Clash returns from ACE Team and Atlus. Zeno Clash II heralds improvements to the combat’s Lock-On feature, and drop in/out co-op multiplayer throughout the entire campaign. New, unspecified RPG elements will allow players “to gain more strength, master defense, or improve in other areas in order to give Ghat and his companion Rimat a better chance of survival.”

“The world of Zenozoik is one of wild dreams and wilder nightmares,” stated Andres Bordeu, co-founder of ACE Team.  “This is part of the reason we are working on Zeno Clash II, to give players the opportunity to explore Zenozoik with a friend via online cooperative multiplayer, turning those moments of wonder and awe into a shared adventure.  We will make certain that going back and forth between solo and cooperative play preserves the consistency and impact of the narrative experience, while still allowing friends easily drop in and out of the game’s fulfilling exploration and visceral melee combat.”

Zeno Clash II will launch on PC (via Steam), Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade sometime in early 2013.
