Blood of the Werewolf from former EA and Activision devs announced for digital release
Scientifically Proven Entertainment has announced Blood of the Werewolf will be released through the eShop on Wii U. The action-platformer from former Activision and EA developers contains a dark atmosphere, with what Nintendo Life calls “punishing old-school gameplay”. It is also coming to PC, PSN and XBLA.
Speaking with Nathaniel McClure, a former Call of Duty developer, Nintendo Life got some details on the game’s storyline.
In it, you play as Selena, one of the last of the Wolf Clan whose parents escaped the werewolf genocide in Europe. In secret she learned her abilities and how to battle her enemies in case the family was followed to the US.
“When Selena turned 13, as is tradition for the Wolf Clan, she killed her first prey,” said McClure. “She was presented with the Wolf Clan Sigil, which she wears on her side. Selena married Marko, another member of the Wolf Clan, and together they moved from the city to a small farm house away from others. Here, they were free to release the wolf within. Soon after, Selena gave birth to a son, Nickoli. They were a peaceful, happy family — but that peace was not meant to last.
“The story opens with Selena coming home one evening to discover her husband Marko brutally murdered and her infant son missing. The game takes place over a single full moon night as Selena journeys through the city that is controlled by the three major houses; Frankenstein, Jekyll, and Dracula. She must encounter and overcome many minions, obstacles, and bosses to find the last of the wolf line, her son.”
Selena is voiced by Erin Cummings of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Bitch Slap fame, and the game is slated for release in June.
