  • New Splatterhouse trailer is completely ridiculous

  • First proper Splatterhouse shots posted

    Tiscali Games has published the first proper screens of Splatterhouse, and very violent it looks too. It’s supposed to be out this year, and this sort of trumps EGM’s exclusive, but there we are. Take a look.
