Even Uwe Boll can’t kill the BloodRayne franchise (maybe it helps that Rayne is already undead). Majesco has announced that they’ve teamed up with WayForward (the developers of Contra 4 and Shantae: Risky’s Revenge) to resurrect the Nazi-killing vampire in BloodRayne: Betrayal.
Instead of the 3D action titles of olde, WayForward will be bringing BloodRayne: Betrayal to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade as a 2D side-scrolling hack ‘n slash. In what’s described as her “final mission,” the half-vampire teams up with a group of slayers to “stop an evil vampire massacre.” So is Majesco saying there are good vampire massacres? Hmm…
Betrayal will “[introduce] new characters and gruesome environmental puzzles” as well as include a “full arsenal of lethal weapons” in its quest for bloody vampire action. The game will also likely include co-op play as Rayne is said to team up with “a mysterious new friend” on her mission.
BloodRayne: Betrayal will be available to download this Summer.
