Last night at The Game Awards, Tripwire Interactive announced via a new trailer that Maneater, an open-world and savage shark sim, will be swimming to Switch on 22nd May 2020.

In a world where millions of sharks are killed each year by humans and (according to the trailer above) only five humans succumb to the big toothy fish, it's about time that Jaws and his buddies got revenge, and it seems they're doing so in spectacularly bloody fashion.

Self-described as a single-player action-RPG, you'll be terrorising the waters of the Gulf Coast chomping on whatever or whomever you come across as you evolve constantly into a more efficient killer.

As you can see from the trailer, it's nothing if not savagely violent - they way Samuel L. Jackson went in classic shark shlockfest Deep Blue Sea seems to be par for the course in Maneater. We remember that film being a fun leave-your-brain-at-the-door movie - we guess we'll find out if Tripwire can sustain that level for an entire game when the game's unleashed in May next year.

Woah here she comes... Let us know if you're keen for Jaws to get his revenge with a chewy little comment below.
