Dethklok, the band from Adult Swim’s series Metalocalypse, is heading to Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network in a new game from Konami.
Users will play as a Dethklok roadie named Klokateer who will go up against “a heinous rampage [of] rabid mutant fans in brutal combat,” while protecting the pure fans that are presumably non-mutants. And off course players will be entertained with music from Dethklok, including three all-new songs.
While I am psyched about the idea of a totally metal game like this, I’m a little disappointed that there’s no mention of The Goon, who most recently crossed paths with the Norwegian musicians in the 32-page one-shot Dethklok vs The Goon comic from Dark Horse. If you are bashing mutants or the like, then it’s only natural to let him crossover again as a secret or unlockable character. (I don’t even really care if he kills the roadie, just put him in, ok game studio!?)
Metalocalypse: Dethgame is due out in late 2009 — The Goon/Dethklok crossover comic book is on sale now.
