Metalocalypse: Dethgame meets its own premature demise

Recommended Videos

Konami had been all set to publish a game for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network based upon the popular Adult Swim cartoon, Metalocalypse. Announced at Comic-Con last year, it was nowhere to be found at E3. A subsequent failure to materialize for this year’s Comic-Con caused Siliconera to get a case of curiousity and ask.

Turns out that the game was unceremoniously canceled at some point in the last year. According to Konami, Adult Swim pulled the license and that was that. Well, that’s a bummer.

Metalocalypse: Dethgame was a brawler which put you in the shoes of a Dethklok roadie beating people up in the service of your Swedish metal masters. Or something. I’ve heard some rumblings that the product wasn’t shaping up to be very good, so perhaps we’ve dodged a bullet here. Wouldn’t want to besmirch the pristine name of Dethklok, after all.
