If you're looking for a pick-me-up after a string of disappointing press conferences (aside THAT Final Fantasy announcement), there can sure be nothing better than a good dose of MadWorld, Platinum Games' SEGA-published black and white carnival of violence. Wii-exclusive, MadWorld has you going through a game of death as the imprisoned Jack, murdering all those in your way in a number of exciting ways so that you might escape a terrorist organisation. Like sticking tyres over their bodies and then running them through with nearby road signs, for example. And then putting them in the bin.
To join in with the festivities of E3, Platinum Games have released a bag of screenshots not for the squeamish. As if that wasn't enough, for dessert they've also unleashed a gameplay trailer that shows the game off in all its stylistic comic-book style glory, which also happens to be genuinely hilarious due to the OTT violence and a manical commentator. And the gameplay bears a passing resemblance to God Hand, which can only be a very good thing.
We can't wait...but we're going to have to, because it's not out until early 2009. Screens and trailer below. Children need not apply.
Thanks to IGN for the trailer.
