Before Resident Evil … before Alone in the Dark … before, hell, Ghouls’ N Ghosts and just about everything else … there was Splatterhouse — the original bloodcurdling epic video game featuring a hockey-masked killer with a bigass 2×4 that took the Turbografx 16 and Sega Genesis by storm. Namco just sent over some new screenshots of its upcoming redux of the popular horror game from back in the day, and wow, they look pretty damned sweet and pretty damned violent! Bless you, Namco. Bless you!
Though we still don’t have a firm date yet (Gamestop has it listed as September 1st), we do know that the game entails the now skull-masked Rick returning to a veritable splatterhouse of horrors to save his beloved Jennifer from all kinds of evil. Really? That’s all the storyline we need!
