The remake of cult ‘80s arcade brawler Splatterhouse will launch at Metal Hammer magazine’s 2010 Golden Gods awards at London’s Indig02 venue.
Rock stars, publishers and fans will attend the eighth annual event on June 14th with Namco Bandai sponsoring the ‘Metal As Fuck’ award – handed to the winner of a three band battle on a boat.
Attendees will also be able to play Splatterhouse, which features a heavy metal soundtrack with tracks from Golden Gods nominee Five Finger Death Punch and previous winner Lamb of God.
Metal Hammer publisher Chris Ingham said: “Splatterhouse is one of the seminal arcade games of the ‘80s that I remember well.
“Not only is the game awesome but Namco has assembled a soundtrack of bands that any Metal Hammer reader would be excited to play so we are delighted to welcome them to the Golden Gods for the first time.”
Head of PR for Namco Bandai Partners Lee Kirton added: “We‘re incredibly excited that Splatterhouse is to be a part of this well celebrated awards show.”
Splatterhouse follows the story of Rick, a super strong killer on the hunt for his kidnapped girlfriend. It is scheduled for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 in time for Halloween.
