Namco has hired 10-20 staff members from BottleRocket to finish development of Splatterhouse.

Seems the company opened up a new studio in San Diego and pulled in artists, designers, programmers, producers, and other staff to work alongside the Afro Samurai team.

Splatterhouse was yanked from BottleRocket back in March because of “performance issues” and combined with Brash going bust and the subsequent cancellation of The Flash, the firm was in dire straits.

According to  Variety, BottleRocket is currently at work on Scratch: The Utimate DJ after a bit of a dry spell.
