SEGA® Europe and SEGA® of America Inc. are excited to announce Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit™! What’s this, you haven’t heard of it? That’s because it hasn’t been announced yet! Filled with comical gore, plenty of fake blood splatters, and a hot-tempered rabbit prone to extreme violence, what more could you ask for? A drill? Ah, we have that as well. Located in the depths of hell and developed by Arkedo Studio, this single-player game will be unleashed on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network, and PC Digital Download in 2012.
You are a devil rabbit named Ash, who also happens to be the prince of Hell and feared by all. But one individual has forgotten that. Your archenemy Fat Rabbit has posted your secret sex pictures all over the Hellternet and that makes you seriously angry. This sucks! You want him to burn in hell, and with your hot temper you can make revenge oh so sweet. It’s you and your trusty driller alone (plus some other weapons and customisation!) against everyone else. Drill your way to vengeance and explore the huge and varied world of Hell Yeah! Delving into the darkest depths of the underworld, you can ride the driller as a slaughter machine and exterminate those rude and ugly monsters by blasting and tearing them apart on your mission to get Fat Rabbit. Don’t feel bad, they all deserve to die! It’s you against all Hell, after all. It’s Hell Yeah!
“The divine union between Arkedo and SEGA results in the devilishly good product we can all sinfully be excited about. Hell Yeah!” commented Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America.
“Yes: divine. Exactly the words we were looking for! Now if you will excuse us for a moment, we have a quote by a SEGA VP to show our mums. Then we’ll be back: we have a great game to show!” added Camille Guermonprez, Studio Chef at Arkedo Studio.
The Hell Yeah, a non-PC Steamworks title coming later this year, reminds me of Jazz Jackrabbit, the second game to be specific. Seems like it should be a cool game, unfortunately I don’t own a console. Here is a quote from the press release:
