Suda51: Shadows of the Damned to last ‘about 10 hours’

Shadows of the Damned will take around ten hours to complete depending on the difficulty setting gamers pick, executive director Goichi Suda has revealed.

Chatting with the folks at MeriStation, Suda also said it’s possible squeeze a little more play time out of the action-horror romp if you feel compelled to do so.

"It depends on the degree of difficulty," he explained. "Probably about 10 hours. Maybe more if you try to collect everything. "

A collaborative effort between Suda and Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami, Shadows of the Damned centres on demon hunter Garcia Hotspur, who finds himself traversing the pits of hell in order to rescue his true love.

The game hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 worldwide on June 21, 2011.
