So there’s this game coming out, you may have heard of it; it’s called Splatterhouse and I hear there’s a bucket or two of gore in it. If you’re looking to satiate your bottomless appetite for all things red and squishy, I suggest you check out this exclusive video showing off an in-depth look at the game’s incredibly wicked arsenal of badass weaponry.
I think it’s safe to say if you’re perusing this site you share our fondness of frenetic, blood-soaked and limb-flailing action, all of which the highly anticipated Splatterhouse looks to have in abundance. It’s my opinion we can always use more ways to slay and dismember our foes so the idea of gracefully removing an enemy’s arm before using said appendage to cause copious amounts of head trauma sounds mighty tasty. Read on to get caught up on everything you need to know about this game before it’s release on November 23rd. Fan of screenshots? Wow, me too. Last month we were given TONS and TONS of screenshots from the upcoming game that show off its cel-shaded art style but now we know a little more about the heart and soul of the game, specifically its kickass combat.
In case you were unfamiliar with the game, it’s a fun blend of beat ’em up action and survival horror that has an old-school slasher flick feel and a strong emphasis on making things go splat. It’s essentially a remake of the original game from way back in 1988, you know, before Facebook and Twitter took over the world. It follows Rick whose girlfriend has been kidnapped Mario-style by the malicious Dr. West. Things seem to be going downhill until Rick finds himself a handy little mask that imbues him with rock-hard abs and the miraculous ability to literally tear his unsuspecting foes apart.
So yeah, basically, Splatterhouse looks to be the very incarnation of everything I’ve ever wanted in a video game.
Splatterhouse will soon be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 when it releases in the US on 11/23 and 11/26 for those across the pond.
