Original Splatterhouse Devs Now Back On The Game

What go around. Come around. Despite Namco Bandai yanking development of Splatterhouse from developers Bottlerocket, the publisher has now hired many of those same developers to finish the game off.

Guess Namco's problem was indeed, as we suggested, with the "upper management" at Bottlerocket, and not the developers themselves.

According to The Cut Scene, Namco Bandai have quietly opened a new studio in San Diego, where "between 10 and 20 designers, artists, programmers, producers, and other staff" from the original team have been hired to complete work on the upcoming remake of the classic 80's NES title. These guys will be helping the publisher's internal Afro Samurai team finish the game ahead of its release later this year.
