Matt Hazard, the larger than life personality that powered parody shooter Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard, is shrinking down and making the jump to PSN and XBLA. This time, though, instead of yuckin’ it up to the tune of Gears of War, Hazard’s bringing his signature brand of humor to the realm of sidescrollers like Shadow Complex.
And really, with a title like “Blood Bath & Beyond,” how can you refuse? Bigger, better, and more badass? Sorry Cliffy — weak descriptors like that just won’t cut it anymore.
The press release is after the break.

Namco has reached agreements to acquire 70 percent of D3′s shares, according to this Andriasang report.
The news apparently comes from a press release.
Namco hopes to acquire the full 100 percent of shares, at a price of 62,000 yen.
D3 will be turned into a wholly-owned Namco subsidiary.
Other detail from the press release outlines resulting benefits of the move:
- Cooperation on overseas content expansion using such products as D3′s BEN10 series.
- Increasing the value of D3′s content by tying it in with Bandai Namco Groups’ other “strategic business units” (the release mentions five such units: toys and hobbies, amusement facilities, game content, network, and video/music content).
- Use of Bandai Namco Games content with D3′s casual games series
- Use of D3′s content with Bandai Namco’s “multi-content” development system (this presumably refers to Bandai Namco’s ability to produce toys, anime and other products outside of games).
- For North American content development, improvement of development efficiency through shared use of technology (game engines, etc.)
- Cooperative development and promotions for mobile content
- Offering of new types of play and new content by using the combined knowhow of Bandai Namco Games and D3

D3 Publisher will unleash its Japanese hack-and-slash Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad on an unsuspecting American public tomorrow via the Xbox 360.
The 360 version takes place before the Wii version, Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers, and while both stories feature Aya and Saki battling zombies, more is planned for the Xbox 360 outing further down the road.
According to an interview with D3′s Alex Coward over on Strategy Informer, a variety accessories and outfits not in the Wii game will be made available, along with a Zombie Wale, sword fighting on a motorcycle, and the girls Misery, Himiko and Reiko.
PS3 users take heart: while the Onechanbara games are not currently heading your way, Cowards says it hasn’t been ruled out yet.

The futuristic sequel to the stupidly popular Puzzle Quest features a robotic woman saying things like, “Supernova,” as well as the opportunity to laser opponents. Because you’re in space, obviously.
