I can’t think of an original-concept game I’ve been more excited about than Tim Schafer’s Brutal Legend. Rock and roll plus demon slaying? How has no one created this game yet? Plus, getting Jack Black to voice our hero roadie Eddie Riggs was a stroke of genius. For those of you who might not know Brutal Legend puts Riggs in a demon realm where he’s got to stay alive armed with a battle axe and his guitar Clementine.To get people psyched for his game, which drops on October 13th, Schafer–the brains behind The Secret Of Monkey Island–stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last Friday.
In the clip, Fallon says he and his crew want to start treating video game releases like movie premieres, so hopefully this will bring the people behind the scenes of the video game world to the forefront and get them some much-deserved screen time.
