Konami announced today that a video game based on the wildly popular Adult Swim animated series Metalocalypse is currently in development for Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network. The upcoming Metalocalypse: Dethgame will immerse players into the world of Dethklok, the world’s most brutal Norwegian heavy metal band.
Created by series co-creator Brendon Small, Metalocalypse: Dethgame players will be transformed into Klokateers, loyal band roadies, and unleashed to wreck havoc on rabid mutant fans, explore Mordhaus and protect the METAL faithful. The game will include tracks from the best-selling Dethklok: The Dethalbum and feature three brand new songs from Williams Street Records’ Dethklok (available for purchase in the Fall). The gaming package is rounded out by several mini-games, making Metalocalypse: Dethgame a unique gaming experience in the downloadable game arena.
“We have gone above and beyond and found the biggest nerds in the industry to help develop and deliver what will without a doubt be the most successful downloadable cartoon death metal game in recorded history,” says Small. “I defy anyone to find another death metal cartoon that can claim the same. I think the most important thing to remember beyond the record-setting CD sales, and astounding ratings and growing rabid fans around the world, is that this game is going to be a blast to play.”
Developed by Frozen Codebase, Metalocalypse: Dethgame will hit stores this Fall. More information on Metalocalypse: Dethgame, can be found here.
