Dishwashing liquid arrives, basically confirms Dishwasher sequel

Ska Studios, the folks behind Xbox LIVE Arcade hack ’em up The Dishwasher (and the forthcoming XBL Indie title Charlie Murder) sent us dishwashing detergent in the mail.


The detergent comes as a teaser to an announcement, which is being counted down over at As of this writing, there are six days left on the countdown to… something. Our guess? A sequel to The Dishwashers, which that jerk Tom Morello spoiled for everyone, along with Halo Reach. See? A jerk.

Not convinced? Here’s what our Japanese translating robot (a.k.a. Brad Rice) came up with when looking at the Japanese text on the bottle:

It’s the sequel of washing food products!
It’s coming this early
and will make everyone happy!
Expect lots of blood to be shed

We’ll know more next week, and when we do, we’ll be sure to let you know. In the meantime, hit the jump to read the full text of the “Big happy announcement” — a fictional (?) cross promotion between Ska Studios and “Japan’s #1 dish washing liquid mega supplier, Fervor Shine!”

Oh, and for those asking — yes, it’s really dishwashing detergent. (Works great!)

Big happy announcement!
