Spoiler: Splatterhouse has some blood in it

Namco Bandai would like to remind you that Splatterhouse is released this week, although the chances of you forgetting again fifteen minutes from now are high.

For any game without major marketing, the end of November is a silly launch date, not to mention that delays and a lack of publisher push have turned this into quite an obscure release. Hell, we don’t even have a review copy yet. 

The game looks incredibly stupid and full of blood, but then, I like stupid n’ bloody. I’m still holding onto a faint glimmer of hope that this game will be at least decent, but Namco Bandai’s behavior concerning the title doesn’t look too great.
