Drench Yourself In New Splatterhouse Screens & Art

Just like any good horror movie villain, as soon as you begin to think that Splatterhouse is down for good, it rises again like a blood-soaked phoenix. It's been quite some while since we heard anything about the Namco Bandai (formerly Bottle Rocket)-developed title, but now we have some gory new screens shots and art to sink our teeth into. Check out Rick in all his hockey mask-wearing, monster-punching glory.

Judging by the screens, you're constantly going to have your fist buried up to the shoulder in the faces of your abominable foes. These mutated enemies are the product of Dr. West's evil experiments, which are now running amok in his dilapidated mansion. Where things get really messy is that Rick's girlfriend, Jennifer, was last seen entering said mansion. This is where Rick's "Terror Mask" will come in handy, allowing him to transform into a 'roided out hulk and maim his way to the love of his life.

Expect Splatterhouse to be available in Q3 of 2010 for the 360 and PS3. Here's hoping the game can dodge a return trip to development hell.
