Matt Hazard spin-off due this winter

Blood Bath and Beyond for PSN/XBLA.

Vicious Cycle and D3Publisher have announced that Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond will be released for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade this winter.

Blood Bath and Beyond is a spin-off from last year's pretty ropey Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard, in which lead character Matt has to take on foes from his fictional old games. Satire, innit.

This new digital download is a side-scroller in which Matt has to... go back through his old games chasing down one of his old nemeses, General Neutronov. His battle threatens to take him through a made-up catalogue of delights like The Adventures of Matt in Hazard Land and Chest of the Pirate Queen.

There are some screenshots in a Flash viewer on the official site, which also suggests we'll see the game the other side of the New Year.
