Sega’s Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit Announcement Trailer


You’re the Prince of Hell. You ride ‘The Driller’, a bladed one wheeled bike (of sorts), you’re packing some hefty guns and most importantly you’re a skeletal Rabbit with one hell of an attitude. And when “Fat Rabbit” manages to nab a few saucy and somewhat naughty pictures of you, he takes the only course of action any nemesis would do, and posts them on Hell’s equivalent of the internet; the aptly named Hellternet. So as the prince of darkness, you head to the darkest depths of Hell to duke it out once and for all with your arch enemy.

Already you can clearly see the comic value that this platformer is going to offer. It takes the conventional side scroller and flips it over to something more flamboyant and ostentatious in its expectations.

We’ve all spent far too long jumping onto Goombas and Badnicks, so Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit likes to throw some weapons your way, giving you the same feel of Metal Slug on happy pills. And this game doesn’t hold back on the dismemberment either. One can only feel that with these hordes of forgotten souls and un-dead, Arkedo Studio agrees there is no harm in a little pain and suffering in the underworld. 

Arkedo Studio was a small indie studio and only rather recently were they taken under the wing of SEGA for promotional purposes due to their previous success with other indie titles.

As always with side scrolling platform games there is an element of fear about repetition and how frustration can overcome the joy of the game, but SEGA are renowned for their old school titles in the 2D format which puts a comforting thought into our minds. So with a brilliantly bloody and brutal way of pushing out the comedy aspect, we can look forward to a joyous experience as we murder our way through Hell.

Set for a summer 2012 release, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit will be available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network. Keep your eyes peeled here for further details as we get them. Oh and like me, you’ll probably be humming, “Hell yeah the rabbit is coming, you better start running,” after you have watched this awesome trailer.
