Slain: Back From Hell is a balls-to-the-wall, heavy metal, gory, action game which will immediately remind you of Castlevania, and it is currently enjoying a massive sale on the US eShop for 50% off! Until May 10th, you can pick it up for just $9.99. If you have any interest in picking this one up, now would be a great time to do so. Juan’s excellent review of the title sold me on it, and I have been waiting for an opportunity such as this to get it. If you haven’t seen it yet, I would highly recommend checking his review out. It is some of his best work to date.
“You control the fate of Bathoryn, a doomed hero in a Gothic world, who seeks to liberate six cursed realms from six deadly overlords. He must battle his way through this blighted land, packed with gruesome and lethal creatures before ascending (or sometimes descending) into a stronghold, all the while defeating fiendish traps and vile monsters alike. Accompanying by the heavy metal visuals is an even heavier metal soundtrack recorded by Curt Victor Bryant (formerly of Celtic Frost).”
