Zeno Clash 2 screenshots get tooled up

Zeno Clash had two main strengths: a delightfully weird world and a giddying simulation of beating the merry heck out of man and beast alike with your meaty fists. The announcement of Zeno Clash 2 focused mostly on the former quality, but some new screenshots give us a pleasing look at the latter. It's our first day properly back at work so we're easily excited by things like pretty pictures, see. The first-person face-puncher sequel is an open-world-y affair, unlike the linear original, and boasts RPG elements like stats. Oh, and it adds online co-op multiplayer, so you can chain faces real good together with Ghat's sister, Rimat. Developed by ACE Team and published by Atlus, Zeno Clash 2 is slated for a downloadable release on PC (via Steam), Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 some time this spring.
