Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced that PSN's 2D shooter Crash Commando will release this December. We're currently awaiting similar confirmation from Sony America. The game features 12-player online and offline combat, along with über-violence and "a wicked sense of humour." We've heard the game called a mix of Warhawk, Soldat and Contra.

Crash Commando will also include full Trophy support, stat tracking, rankings and leaderboards when it launches, though there's currently no word on price. PS3 Fanboy had some hands-on time with the title during E3, so have a look if you're curious.
