No catchy heading, this game looks AWESOME!

Insanity’s Blade is an interesting title in the world of “retro-style” games because while a lot of them are pointed more towards cute platformers like¬†Super¬†Mario, Sonic, and other classic 16-bit titles, none of them take the other side of the spectrum. What about the Castlevania games and Splatterhouse series? Gory and fun 16-bit platform games were just as important to gamers and helped shaped that generation of titles. Luckily, Causal Bit Games remembers this time frame, and is creating Insanity’s Blade, which is poised to hit the Wii U “shortly after” (according to their YouTube message) the May 20th release on PC.
