The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile hits XBLA early April

Ska Studio’s The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile is hitting Xbox Live Arcade on April 6, if the above image didn’t give all of that away. If I didn’t have to add that it’ll cost 800 MS Points, that image would have written the story for me.

Not exactly, because there’s more! The final version of the game will be playable at PAX East the coming weekend, so you can start slicing things up sooner. We’re also told Ska will have a supply of Swedish Fish to share, and it will be holding hourly raffles where you can win a pre-release code to download the game. So now you have no choice but to stop by and say “hi.”

Vampire Smile will feature 13 story levels, 50 challenges, leaderboards, and — cue dramatic music as you run out to buy a new television — full stereoscopic 3D support.

I played it at the last PAX East, and really enjoyed killing things. What I didn’t get a chance to see in action was the game’s “Pretty Princess” mode, which Ska was proposing to be the easiest (and most colorful!) mode in the game. Make sure you bug them about it this weekend if you’re headed to Boston.
