Jack and Shadow to return in Dead To Rights: Retribution
Volatile Games have announced today that, in partnership with NAMCO Bandai of America, a new Dead To Rights game featuring gritty super-sleuth Jack Slate and his ever ready canine companion Shadow is on its way for the PS3.
Gaining the subtitle of “Retribution”, the game features the crime-fighting duo fighting to “expose the shadowy underworld figures exerting their evil grip over the crumbling metropolis.”

The game promises to “innovate” with a new hybrid combat system consisting of 3rd person shooting, visceral hand-to-hand combat and an overhaul of Shadow’s “dog AI”.
The release also goes on to discuss some of the game’s virtues by stating:
[...] the immersive gameplay and storyline combined with beautifully imagined backdrops and scenarios pulls the player into Jackâ€™s world as he investigates the threats facing the once great city. Jack will encounter a variety of ruthless gangs, each with their own fighting style, and all looking to destroy him and Grant City.
Sounds good to us. We always had a soft spot for Shadow. Admittedly, such soft spots were usually targeted by his inquisitive jaws as he attempted to bring us to justice. Damn we hate that dog.
[UPDATE] Eurogamer have some new screenshots of the game. Fetch!
