Splatterhouse looks like good clean fun 'cough' and after several delays, we might have a believable release date.
Currently in development by Namco Bandai for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, this remake of an original beat-'em-up classic looks to feature a ton of fast-paced action and gritty gore. Players will step into the shoes of Rick Taylor, who embarks on a mission to save his girlfriend, Jennifer, from hordes of vicious fiends. All Taylor knows is that she disappeared after entering a mansion owned by the mysterious scientist Dr. West, who has been creating some seriously nasty things behind closed doors. And so, in classic video game style, the hero dons a Mayan Terror Mask and becomes a massive killing machine. The concept is certainly appealing and provided Electronic Theatre has the correct information, we can expect to see the game towards the end of November. The source gives Splatterhouse a November 26 date but just bear in mind that it appears to be the UK date; the US date might be a bit different. We'll just have to wait and see.
For the most part, though, the difference between US/UK releases is usually only a couple of days, so perhaps it's now safe to assume that Splatterhouse will be ready to rock for the holiday season.
