Splatterhouse Lives up to Its Name in gamescom Trailer

Splatterhouse is an update of the original gory-filled arcade beat-’em-up released in 1988. Namco Bandai’s efforts to retain the original game’s qualities are clearly showcased in the titles’ gamescom trailer. As seen in the trailer, it shows gameplay footage of the classic and cleverly compares it to the forthcoming Splatterhouse title. Check it out after the break.

In Splatterhouse players will learn how to harness and focus the juggernaut power of Rick in order to perform countless brutal attacks and stop his relentless opponents from gaining the upper hand. The dynamic combat system will see Rick performing bone-smashing combos and grapples and much more. Splatterhouse is currently scheduled for an appropriate release date during Haloween on October 26th.
