ESRB rates WET developer’s “Revenge of the Wounded Dragons”
Always a bountiful source for new and currently unannounced titles, the ESRB have once again provided a portentous glimpse into what gratuitously violent and sexually suggestive games we’ll be playing in the near future.
This time it’s WET developer A2M’s new side-scrolling vengeance smack-a-thon “Revenge of the Wounded Dragons”.
From the following description of the action, it does sound like this particular title will be found on the PSN and not at your local game store.
This is a 2D fighting game in which players assume the roles of two brothers attempting to avenge their grandfather’s death and rescue their sister from the local mafia boss. Players frequently punch, kick, and throw enemies as they “side-scroll” (i.e., walk) forward through the platform city environments; they can also use bottles, bats, knives, Molotov cocktails, pistols, shotguns, and uzi submachine guns to kill the henchmen. All enemies disappear from the screen seconds after they are defeated. The gun attacks represent the most intense instances of violence, as enemies react to damage with brief blood spurts, screams, and twitches. One still-image cutscene depicts a strip club where women in lingerie can be seen pole-dancing in the background.
So far the game is only listed for the PlayStation 3. As more information regarding Revenge of the Wounded Dragons emerges, we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
