Splatterhouse Goes Gold, Nails Down Release Date
It's all in the name. This slam-bang action extravaganza might be right up your alley and if it is, you don't have much longer to wait.
Namco Bandai has announced that Splatterhouse has gone gold for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Inspired by the popular 1988 arcade hit, this re-imagining of the game "combines visceral, adrenaline-soaked combat with horror elements to deliver over-the-top gore." ...yeah, well, we figured that much. College student Rick Taylor is on a quest to save his kidnapped girlfriend, Jennifer, who is being held in the mysterious Mansion owned by the zany scientist, Dr. West. Because the good doctor has some freaky monsters roaming about, Rick needs to utilize the powers given by a mystical sentient mask that gives him supreme ability. And so, he heads out equipped with the Terror Mask and has more than a few ways to dole out ridiculous amounts of pain. The Splatter Kills should be immense crowd-pleasers; they "enable you to rip, impale, and smash your opponents into bloody pulpy masses." The game will also boast a licensed soundtrack loaded with heavy metal, which certainly fits.
Splatterhouse will be ready to shock the hell out of you on November 23. It isn't a bad time; it avoids the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood that release in previous weeks.
