Splatterhouse in 2010

Splatterhouse in 2010

Namco-Bandai confirmed today the release sometimes in 2010 of Splatterhouse on Xbox 360 and PS3. I'm pretty sure quite a few of us already know what this will all be about, but in case you want to know more 5 images are available inside.
Update: Added some more images and artworks.

Epic.

A game that sorely needed to be remade.

Visually it's a mess, and I don't mean that in a good way. But the original still has charm, so who knows, maybe something good will come of this. (despite Namco closing down the original dev team)

They should have remade it using a style similar to shadow complex. 3D sidescroller with elements of pure 3D. I just think it would have felt more like the original that way. we'll have to wait and see though.

I love the original 3 games so this is a must buy for me, though i hardly expect it to be stellar. Also i guess Biggy Man is confirmed then :)

The devs must be disregarding the fact that the original games were absolute shite, and the reason they were synonymous back in the day was that they contained copious amounts of the red stuff. It was the only ploy it had and made the series controversial in the 16-bit era (Turbografx-16 and PC that is). Why they think that warrants some kind of nostalgic remake is beyond me. It should have been a XBLA remake at best.

I wish we had someone like Tim Schafer working on this to reaffirm it's awesome. Despite whatever dingle berry thought the series sucked, it's better than Friday the 13th! There I said it...

Sorry, but the PC-Engine (TG-16 in the states) was an 8-Bit console, albeit with a 16-Bit graphics processor. And I don't recall any PC-Version, unless you mean the version for FM-Towns. Game should have been cancelled, I don't see any appeal in these screens.

But I agree with bramski, they should have remade it using a style similar to shadow complex.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The world isn't interactive enough. It's easy to compare it to Far Cry... and it's probably not as good as Far Cry. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I only played for about an hour so far but my initial impressions are that the squad and stealth stuff is okay but the vehicle handling is indeed super bad. (3 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: that is pretty crazy considering WD2 pretty much ruined the shooting mechanics from WD1 (probably the only good thing about that game) (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't call you crazy.. I haven't played either. (6 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts People are gonna call me crazy, but I got far more enjoyment out of Watch Dogs 2's shooting mechanics than Ghost Recon: Wildlands'. Need to test other weapons, but only unlocked 2 of them. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (9 Hours ago)
