WayForward Developing 2D BloodRayne: Betrayal For Release This Summer

Seven years after the last game, Majesco are reviving the BloodRayne series. Teaming up with developer, WayForward Technologies, known for their work on Contra 4 and the Wii remake of A Boy and His Blob, Majesco will release BloodRayne: Betrayal as a downloadable game on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.

 

Unlike the previous games, BloodRayne: Betrayal will be a 2D side-scrolling action game. You’ll still play as Rayne who has been “recruited by the vampire hunting Brimstone Society for one final mission.” Majesco say this involves Rayne teaming up with a “mysterious new friend” to stop an evil vampire massacre.

 

While the game doesn’t have a release date yet, Majesco plan to release BloodRayne: Betrayal sometime this summer. All they’ve revealed of the game so far is a quick glimpse of concept art, and its logo, seen in the teaser video above.

 

Betrayal isn’t the only BloodRayne game Majesco have planned either. At E3 last year, a popular list of planned third-party Nintendo 3DS games made the rounds, and had BloodRayne: The Shroud listed on it. Majesco haven’t revealed anything about this game yet, however.

    I’ve never had any interest in the BloodRayne series, but I’m always willing to give a new 2D game from WayForward a try.

    I thought this was your April Fools joke at first.

      Trust me, today has been a bloody nightmare with trying to figure out what’s real and what isn’t…

    Mmmm more platformers especially with co-op is more welcome. I blame hard corps for setting the standard so high XD

    Wow, that instantly grabbed my interest. I never played Bloodrayne but the main character looked hot and bad-ass. Then combine that with Wayforward (their Contra 4 was great) and it would be a great game. Hoping that this would be in HD 2D sprites similar to Hard Corps: Uprising.

    From what I remember of Bloodrayne, it was pretty mediocre. Weird choice of an IP to revive.
