All Articles: Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

XBLA Today: Hell Yeah, Marvel vs Capcom Origins

Microsoft has added two games to the Xbox Live Arcade today.

First up is the absolute insanity that is Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. Arkedo’s platformer is perhaps the only game in existence where a deranged (and dead) rabbit uses a buzzsaw to decapitate the legions of Satan:

You’re an angry rabbit with a thirst for vengeance, a super sawing jetpack driller and some seriously badass weapons. Explore, jump, shoot, loot, upgrade, drill and destroy Hell’s monsters. ALL OF THEM. Unleash the wrath of the dead rabbit in 10 huge levels packed with hidden areas, side quests and cursed souls to harvest.Charging through Hell on your jetpack driller, you’re on a quest to find out who had the balls to post your intimate photos all over the Hell-ternet. It’s payback time! While you’re at it, why not use this incredible journey to kill everybody else? There’s only one way to do this – FULL FRONTAL VIOLENCE sponsored by over-powered missiles, rockets and grenades! Inflict ultimate humiliation on the monsters of Hell using deadly “Finish him!” mini-games (includes the signature Dinosaur beheading). Grab as much loot as you can and spend it in big shops where you can buy bigger guns and awesome upgrades for your ride.

Also available today is Marvel vs Capcom: Origins, which collects the Marvel-only Marvel Super Heroes and the first Marvel vs Capcom game:

The heroes of Marvel are back on the fighting ground, ready to do battle with Capcom’s greatest legends, and with each other. In Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins, you get two classic 90s Marvel arcade games for the price of one! Both Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom play like their original arcade versions – with fast-paced, over-the-top fighting action – but now feature upgraded HD visuals and customizable appearances, online play, replay-saving and spectator mode, and a dynamic challenge system that earns points for unlockable goodies. Fight like a hero, play like a legend!

Hell Yeah! and Marvel vs Capcom: Origins are both available to download for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).

PSN Today: Grand Theft Auto III, Tokyo Jungle, Dead or Alive 5, Hell Yeah, more

Even if there were replacement referees judging a contest between the PlayStation Store, the Xbox Live Marketplace, and the Wii Shop, Sony would come out way ahead. And they proved why again today by dumping a massive quantity of quality games onto the PlayStation Store. All told, 17 new games are now available on the download service, and here’s a few highlights, starting with one of the greatest games of all time:

  • After a slight delay, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto III joins the store as part of the PS2 Classics line.
  • FIFA Soccer 13 corner kicks its way onto the store in three different versions (PS3, PSP, and Vita).
  • It’s the end of the world as we know it, but the animals found in the Tokyo Jungle (PSN) are cool with that.
  • The futuristic Starhawk (PS3) is now available to download in both a full version and a special multiplayer only edition.
  • EA’s underappreciated classic, Mirror’s Edge (PS3), is also available to download.
  • A pair of fighting games, Marvel vs. Capcom: Origins (PSN) and Dead or Alive 5 (PS3) will battle it out for your affections.
  • The absolutely insane Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit would make a hell of a download.
  • And LittleBigPlanet PS Vita is now available to download, wait for it, on the PS Vita.

You can find even more new releases after the break along with a ton of new game add-ons at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Hell yeah! Sega has announced a release date for Hell Yeah!

Publisher Sega and developer Arkedo have finally announced a released for their downloadable game starring starring the Prince of Hell in a quest for vengeance. Oh, did I mention that the Prince of Hell also happens to be an undead rabbit with a mean streak and a giant drill-cycle? Because he is and he does.

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit‘s release schedule will roll through the end of next month on three different dates. The PlayStation Network version will be available on September 25. The Xbox Live Arcade version will be released a day later on September 26. And the PC download will arrive a week after that on October 3. All three versions have been priced at $14.99.

If an undead rabbit sounds too family friendly for your tastes, take a look at the “Pimp It Up” trailer above to disabuse yourself of that notion.

New Hell Yeah! gameplay trailer brings you “Full Frontal Violence”

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 this Summer.

Sega and Arkedo Studio announce Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit

The trailer for Sega and Arkedo Studio’s Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit looks pretty awesome. There’s no gameplay – always worrisome – but the idea is interesting, and I’d like to see more. Knowing that you play as Ash, the prince of Hell, and that you’re being blackmailed on the Hellternet, and you ride a drill that you can use for transportation or mass destruction… all of these things are really endearing to me.

The most hilarious part of the announcement:

“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 word 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.

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit will be out later this year for PC, PlayStation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade.
