A Ton of Icky Stills from the Upcoming Splatterhouse Reboot

SplatterhouseBack in the glory days of the Sega Genesis, I was all about “Splatterhouse.” The idea of playing a guy that resembled Jason Voorhees appealed directly to my horror-soaked brain, especially since the main character was a sinister badass who could easily break apart monsters with his bare hands. Rumors of a supposed “remake” have been circulating for years, but now, it seems, the game is finally coming together. The kindly folks lurking behind-the-scenes at Kotaku have posted several screenshots from the upcoming “Splatterhouse” reboot, and I must say, it looks pretty faithful to the original series. Unfortunately, this puppy won’t see the light of day until September of 2010, so I suppose these pics will have to satisfy my virtual bloodlust until then.

As long as I still get to smash monsters with a large chunk of wood, I’ll be a happy weirdo.

He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    I’d heard about this in a GameInformer a while back and then it fell off the radar. These stills look great. I have one beef though. Why shorts? He looks like a beefed up psycho skater. ANYway from what I remember this will have crazy effects when you get damage. If you’ve played X-Men Origins: Wolverine (the best Wolverine game EVER) you already have an idea of what i mean but this will be gorrier when it comes to the loss of flesh and regeneration. Can’t wait.

    the game is still in the works???

    When the first trailer was announced at VGA last year, EA had to shut down the company making it. Because they farked up the story line. I mean Splatterhouse location supposed to take place in a mansion crazy house. But their own version takes place in different areas, so EA had to shut them down:/

    Glad this is still in the works, it’s gonna be gory.
