New Splatterhouse Also Throws In The Original 16-bit Trilogy

Namco Bandai's gory re-imagining of the 16-bit side-scrolling classic Splatterhouse will come with an unlockable bonus: three 16-bit side-scrolling classic Splatterhouse games.

The latest issue of PlayStation: the Official Magazine brings good news for the serious Splatterhouse fan. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game will feature the original arcade version of Splatterhouse - the "uncensored Japanese" version, they say - plus Splatterhouse 2 and Splatterhouse 3, originally released on the Sega Genesis. That's a perfect opportunity to compare the new, incredibly violent Splatterhouse to the comparatively tame 16-bit originals.

How will you unlock those? Namco Bandai apparently isn't releasing that info yet, at least not to the PlayStation centric magazine.

New article in PS Magazine?, original games confirmed? [West Mansion - thanks, Marty!]


    That's awesome news... unless of course it's going to be on of those "pay to unlock" schemes - which i wouldn't be surprised if it is.

    I haven't played any of the Splatterhouse games as of yet, but i'm quite keen o give them a shot, so if they are all coming with the new one that may just be my best bet.

    I don't really care about the new one, I just want the JAP arcade version! haha
