Dishwasher: Vampire Smile release date

XBLA-exclusive sequel goes Bosch!

Bloodthirsty Xbox Live Arcade exclusive The Dishwasher: Vampire Smile will be released on 6th April.

The cost? A palatable 800 Microsoft Points.

Vampire Smile does what previous game The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai did on a bigger, ballsier scale. You romp, sideways, through stylish stages as a dead samurai, performing slashing combos that slice foes to smithereens.

It's a series birthed by a Microsoft XNA competition called Dream-Build-Play. Solo creator James Silva won his Xbox Live Arcade publishing deal and went on to show entire studios a thing or two, scoring 8/10 on Eurogamer in 2009.

Eurogamer caught up with Silva last year. There's a third Dishwasher game planned, did you know?
