Shadow Of The Eternals Is Alive And Well, Here’s A Video

We all assumed it had been canceled, but IGN has uploaded a new trailer for the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness, Shadow of the Eternals. It looks as though the game is now being produced by Quantum Entanglement Entertainment. Hopefully it’s still coming to the Wii U as originally intended. We should find out soon.
