SouthPeak Games has this week dipped into the PlayStation 3’s blessed font and trickled holy water across its latest Monster Madness creation, officially christening it Monster Madness: Grave Danger.
Initially announced back in September of 2007 under the working title of Monster Madness: EX, SouthPeak’s newest extension of its popular Monster Madness property will arrive exclusively on the PlayStation 3 having directly evolved from fan feedback amassed following the release of Monster Madness: Battle for Suburbia.
According to publisher SouthPeak, feedback gathered from last year’s Battle for Suburbia “has been taken to heart” by development team Psyonix Studios, resulting in “every Zombie, Werewolf and Vampire being recalled to square one.”
The game’s official blurb explains that Grave Danger is the product of Psyonix Studios taking the series “back to the drawing board” in order to analyse every aspect of the game and “revamp [nice pun] and fully realize the core fast paced monster-blasting action” ahead of its release on the PlayStation 3 platform.
Expected improvements over the original Monster Madness include features such as totally reconstructed camera angles, tightened control mechanics, enhanced aesthetics, and a better selection of online modes.
However, SouthPeak is keen to point out that it has acted upon the most popular request submitted by gamers [no, not to perform the anatomically impossible] insofar as it has implemented four-player online co-op along with 15 new character outfits and no less than 20 “Challenge” mini-games too.
Monster Madness: Grave Danger for the PlayStation 3 is scheduled to arrive at retail in the second quarter of 2008.
