Namco Bandai is giving tough cop Jack Slate another chance to shoot lots of bad guys—or throw them down flights of stairs—in Dead To Rights: Retribution for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The next entry in the Dead To Rights series will, according to 1UP's first details on the game, be an origin story, explaining how protagonist Jack Slate and his dog Shadow "first come together as partners." We imagine it will be a lot like the classic Tom Hanks comedy Turner & Hooch, but with scores of bald enemies who will be viciously bitten by Shadow and shoved by Slate.
