Remember back in 2001 when Rare changed the way people looked at cutesy platformers by releasing the highly acclaimed Conker’s Bad Fur day? Despite the charming graphics, large-eyed characters, and colorful locales, Conker’s foray on the Nintendo 64 was nothing short of crude, vulgar, violent, and downright awesome. Well, people can now look forward to looking at fairytales in a much different vein too. Playlogic has announced that they will be releasing Fairytale Fights, a hack-and-slash game set in a fantasy land, on October 27 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and in 2010 for the PC.
Fairytale Fights utilizes The Unreal Engine 3 and features hack-and-slash and platforming gameplay. Players can choose from four different fantasy characters and tackle levels alone or cooperatively. There is also a competitive multiplayer battle mode where up to four players can take the cartoony mincing and slashing to one another.
Playlogic’s latest project will feature colorful graphics and cute characters. Don’t be fooled, though; while there will be frolicking, running, and jumping, there will also be mutilating, slicing, and dicing. Players will traverse through the lush greenery of magical forests and witness the wonders of a castle made of gingerbread. They’ll follow that up by taking an axe to a group of lumberjacks and using a chainsaw to dismember a gingerbread man.
Fairytales Fights is not going to be your average fantasy tale. Despite the fact that the title has not yet been rated by the ESRB, it is safe to say that it will not be geared towards a younger audience. Playlogic will bring the candy-covered brutality to gamers everywhere this fall.
