I played the Sega Genesis port of Splatterhouse 3 when I was young. I remember it being fun if not a bit repetitive like most beat-em-ups could be. I remember it standing out most for just being one of the most unique games I ever played at the time, with impressive backgrounds and visuals for a console game from that time, and some of the most bizarre boss fights I'd ever experienced. Unless it was in some manic fever dream, I clearly remember a demonic teddy-bear, and a creature that could only be described as a circumcised penis with razor sharp teeth. I was always surprised the game didn't get more attention considering it came out around the same time as Doom and Mortal Kombat, when game developers were really starting to push the boundaries of the level of graphic violence allowed in video games. I don't remember many gamers talking about it, or parents trying to get it banned though. I am familiar with the original, it was a bit more straight-forward and punishing while 3 felt a more open, chaotic, and fun.

I'm less surprised the remake didn't really take off. The original trilogy was a cult hit at best, so the nostalgia demand just wasn't there, and this type of game just wasn't going to look like anything special to new players in today's gaming market. I skipped it myself for this very reason. I knew the game wasn't going to give me the same feel it did back then, when it was truly something unique, when now it was just another violent horror game in a very competitive market.

Yep, and Night Trap was Super Mario Brothers compared to these games. I guess parents can't get outraged over something they've never heard of. (Then again, I hadn't heard of Night Trap until several years ago) It's amazing how under the radar these games actually were.

It is disappointing. The first two games being buried on turbografx hasn't helped, since that console was an extreme rarity in North America. When the series finally got a port to a major console, I guess nobody wanted to rent a game that was the third part of series they weren't familiar with. It's the only reason I can think of to explain how this series became so overlooked, hardly even a footnote in VG history.

I know either PS2 or PS3 had a far far updated version of the game but I can't seem to find it anywhere!

The TurboGrafx-16 mini has the original TG16/PC Engine port as well. It used to be a fairly inexpensive mini-console, but the price has more than doubled in the past year ($240 on Amazon now, yikes).

The game will probably come out eventually in one of the console stores or on steam.

Never got to play Splatterhouse but I think I remember the controversy around Night Trap. Was that the one for Sega with the college girls in the house?

Well, this is late, but yes. Night Trap and Mortal Kombat caused some controversy in the media around 1992? Senator Joseph Lieberman was involved. It led to the creation of the ESRB ratings in the U.S.

I still have spatter house 3 on the genesis, I remember Night trap for the Sega CD but never owned it though I do have the one called Sewer Shark which was some ass if I remember correctly. Lol. Still got my old NES too in my garage.

Oh Splatterhouse…. This game bleeds nostalgia….
The horrifying theme of this game may be inappropriate for young children... and cowards."
I loved this game warning on the box.
This bad boy capitalized on the horror popularity of its time and the more you heard about it being banned somewhere the more you wanted it.

@jasonswrath1988 I do remember the Splatterhouse games. I played all of them. I fire them up once in a while.

Night Trap was another stroll down memory lane.

@Jason Voorhees , if you ever get the chance to play them, do so.
Check Amazon or eBay for a disc copy.

@I_THE_MAN_I my NEW still works to this day as well.

I only remember this when they made a "remake" for Playstation 3! I had to research the game and the only reference/homage to Friday the 13th/Jason Voorhees is the fact the main character has a mask and kills people!

I never played the original. I did play the second and third one though.
