Sega Teases Horror Game for October 29th
Well, I think it’s probably going to be a horror game, I can’t see anything non violent/horror based coming from a sentence that starts with ‘[on this date] guts will be [blank here]’. Unless we’re talking the world’s most ridiculous over the top Sonic the Hedgehog game. Or maybe the world’s first Mario and Sonic at the Olympics meets House of the Dead crossover.
What will this game be? What’s the picture they’re teasing? Read on to find out…
That’s the picture. Not much, but I think the choice of text colour, font and wording gives away much of the intent here.
So what’s this mystery game likely to be? Well let’s start with the seven letter blank space. In that, it seems the most likely words are spilled, spelled, or something else along those lines.
What does this leave as possible? Well, based on the Wikipedia page for Sega franchises, there are exactly three possibilities.
Condemned (a psychological horror game for non Nintendo systems)
House of the Dead (the lightgun zombie franchise you should already know about)
And MadWorld (the ultra violent arena combat game which illustrates the Ultra Super Death Gore Fest Chainsawer 3000 page on TV Tropes).
Practically speaking, I’d count the first out for obvious reasons (it’s never been on a Nintendo system and isn’t quite as over the top as the next two), meaning that my personal top two predictions are either a new House of the Dead (most likely option) or a new MadWorld/Anarchy Reigns sequel (less likely). Either would be nicely welcome on the Wii U, what with it’s general lack of ultra violent third party games involving copious amounts of gore and horror elements.
What do you expect this game to be? Will it even be a game at all?
