Schafer Would "Love" To Go Back To The Brutal Legend World
Were you a fan of the head-banging open-world rush that was Brutal Legend? Yeah? We've got good news.
Well, maybe not "good" news, but it's definitely encouraging. Double Fine Productions boss Tim Schafer said that he'd love to return to the bad-ass world of Brutal Legend at some point in the future.
As he told GameSpot:
"I love that world and I would love to go back there. And I think [actor Jack Black] might be up for it, too."
Black played the game's protagonist, Eddie Riggs, a roadie turned warrior who used a guitar as his weapon. The game was loaded with fantastic humor and awesome content, especially for heavy metal aficionados. However, as always, Schafer says he'd need money to do a sequel and as the original cost about $25 million, he'd probably need even more the next time around. And as he says, raising that kind of money "might be tricky."
On a more positive note, Schafer did say there may be an upcoming DLC pack that features the character Lionwhyte. He was the leader of the Hair Metal Militia and voiced by Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford:
"I would love to go back to that world or even just do a DLC pack...we're always trying to get Lionwhyte in there; a playable Lionwhyte army. Maybe that would happen someday. I would definitely love to do that."
That'd be a very late release for DLC, as Brutal Legend launched back in 2009. But really, who's gonna complain?
