Schafer: This is Brütal Legend's year


VG247 met up with master games designer Tim Schafer at E3 last week, who told us he feels that 2009 is Brütal Legend's year.

"This has been a great year for us. I'd thought we'd never get there," he said when asked about how he sees Brütal Legend fitting in alongside the myriad of shooters and rhythm action games on show at the LACC.

"We'd be showing it and I'd walk up and there'd be this huge game on a billboard and I'd be like, 'I wonder if we'll ever get there, we'll probably never get there,' and now this year there's Brütal Legend up there.

"I really feel like this is Brütal Legend's year, and it really feels like it does stand out among the other games," said Schafer.

Brütal Legend is out for Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year. That is, if Activision's move to block the game's release doesn't bear fruit.
