Throw your horns up!

Brutal Legend, (Not pictured - none more rock Umlauts)

Brutal Legend, (Not pictured - none more rock Umlauts)

Via the ever-resourceful souls at Kotaku, a splendid insight into just what delights await you this Rocktober when Tim Schafer’s eagerly anticipated Metal-inspired adventure, “Brutal Legend” debuts on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The game has received an “M” or ‘Mature’ rating in the US, which means content that includes “blood and gore, intense violence, partial nudity, strong language and suggestive themes”.

As an eternal twelve-year-old, that description positively screams “DAY ONE PURCHASE!” at me, but you can make your own mind up.

What I’ve seen so far suggests a spin on action games like “Devil May Cry”, mashed with an unholy pinch of “Dynasty Warriors”-style melee combat, pedal-to-the-you-know-what driving sections, cheese-dream-induced heavy metal album cover imagery and the kind of insanely awesome absurdist humour that only Shafer can deliver.
