announced Evil Dead Regeneration for the PS2, Xbox, and PC.
The game explores a "what if…" continuation from Evil Dead 2, from director Sam Raimi. Voiced by Bruce
Campbell, players will control Ash, the hero of the series, as
they're thrown into a masquerade of evil events, equipped with the latest in
prosthetic fashion. Developed by THQ studio
Cranky Pants Games, Evil Dead Regeneration is scheduled to release this
"I've come to understand that there is only one person in this world fit for
this kind of work," said Ash, part-time S-Mart manager, full-time fox. "And
that's me. Not because of my knack to get things right, most of the time,
but because I can slice and dice evil better than a knife sold on any
late-night infomercial. Maybe it's partially to the fact that I've replaced
one of my hands with a chainsaw, but I digress."
The press release contains a bit more about the game:
Evil Dead Regeneration follows Ash, the lone survivor of a camp discovering
the Necronomicon – the wholly evil book of the dead. Thought to have
murdered his companions, Ash is arrested, convicted of the crime, and
sentenced to Sunny Meadows, an institute for the criminally insane, but not
for long. Ash's peaceful stay is about to end – thanks to the perverted
experiments of his very own psychiatrist, Dr. Reinhard. Hell-bent on using
science to harness the Necronomicon's powers, the mad doctor unleashes the
book's all-powerful Evil on the world – releasing a new slew of Deadites,
monsters and spirits, twisting reality into a hellish strudel and leaving
mankind with that not-so-fresh apocalyptic feeling.
"It's our goal to create the spiritual successor of Evil Dead 2, one of the
seminal action films ever, in pop-culture," said David Bollesen, general
manager, Cranky Pants Games. "Having Bruce Campbell on board, providing
creative direction and embracing new ideas we've injected into their
universe is critical, and their enthusiasm continues to drive us to deliver
the ultimate Evil Dead experience."
