Look, there are a ton of things that we miss about the gaming days of yesteryear. It’d be great if 2D Mario could return to its reign of supremacy, and it certainly wouldn’t hurt if Sonic wasn’t burning alive in whatever flaming trash heap he currently finds himself in. However, with all of the turmoil surrounding Konami, killer of all things Castlevania, it’d be fantastic if the gaming world could get a dark and gritty 2D platformer with a long-haired hero.
If you find yourself agreeing with that last sentence, fear not, as Slain is making its way to Xbox One in the near future. A new trailer was released for the bloody side-scroller, and if you’re not a fan of pixelated gore, you might want to look away.
