No, it’s not my cynical “I hate remakes” inner curmudgeon talking. Gametrailers just put up a trailer for Namco Bandai/BottleRocket’s revival of the classic arcade gore franchise, and it sucks.
No offense guys, but if you’re trying to sell this old warhorse on your flashy remake, you can do a much better job with things like gameplay footage, or not having virtually every shot of Rick take place in the 3D modeling program. I want to see the game, not some power tools splashed with Caro syrup. I know this is a teaser, but come on!
Splatterhouse is due out April 28, 2009 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
You can check out the trailer at Gametrailers.
