Manhunt 2 for Wii
Banned in the United Kingdom and delayed this summer due to an “Adults Only” rating from the Entertainment Software Rating Board, Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software are trotting Manhunt 2 back out for an Oct. 31 release, after a modified version received an “M” for mature rating.
“Manhunt 2 is important to us, and we're glad it can finally be appreciated as a gaming experience,” said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar. “We love the horror genre. Manhunt 2 is a powerful piece of interactive storytelling that is a unique video game experience. We think horror fans will love it.”
The sequel to the 2003 hit game Manhunt is a third-person action thriller in which a man working on an experimental project at a secret lab must kill — a lot, and always in dramatic fashion — to escape.
The game will be available on the PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii.
