NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today release new screens for Splatterhouse, an all new installment of the landmark 1988 arcade hit classic. This latest set of assets highlights the devastating weapons that Rick can acquire and use in game. Designated into categories such as bludgeon, edged, and ‘extra brutal’ weapons, Rick’s arsenal enables him to literally explode bodies into visceral chunks. Rick can annihilate, dismember, and utterly destroy his enemies with a menagerie weapons, including a 2×4, baseball bat, cleaver, shotgun, and the massively devastating chainsaw. When pounding flesh into malleable heaps of viscous meat, it’s good to know Rick’s got options.
Splatterhouse follows college student Rick Taylor as he embarks on a mission to rescue his girlfriend, Jennifer, who has disappeared after entering a mysterious run-down Mansion inhabited by an elusive scientist. Confronted by Dr. West and his horde of horrific abominations, Rick comes across a mystical sentient mask that promises to give him the power to reunite with Jennifer. Full of desperation, Rick dons the “Terror Mask and is transformed into a raging juggernaut exemplifying unadulterated violence and destruction.
Splatterhouse will be available in Q3 2010 for the Xbox 360Ã‚Â® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATIONÃ‚Â®3 computer entertainment system.
