Yesterday, DS Fanboy (http://www.dsfanboy.com/) reported on the rumor (http://www.dsfanboy.com/2008/05/12/rumor-sega-publishing-platinum-games-title-for-ds/) that Platinum Games, the company started by ex-Clover Studio members (and Capcom luminaries) Atsushi Inaba, Hideki Kamiya, and Shinji Mikami), was partnering with Sega for new games to be released on the Wii and the DS. This video of Mad World is not technically confirmation since it could be a total fake, but it sure looks real -- and it sure is getting taken down from Youtube and Gametrailers with alarming speed.

Mad World is a bloody, futuristic action game that looks (from the blurry video) more like a brawler than the kind of operatic sword maneuvering we know from Devil May Cry. We hate to mention it again (because we always do when talking about Clover), but it evokes a futuristic, really bloody God Hand.

It looks like we were wrong about one of the rumors, by the way: Bayonetta is a PS3 game (if any of this is real), and not a Wii game.


The video begins with the caption "CHAINSAW," followed by a beefy guy in metallic, future-armor putting a chainsaw through another guy. There's a high-contrast, almost black-and-white look to the visuals. The video then cuts to "ROSE BUSH" and our hero pushes an enemy into an array of horizontal spikes. Then "HEART SURGERY" and a Kano/Mola Ram heart-ripping maneuver. The character walks toward the camera as a list of wrestling-esque move names fills the screen: "Flat Tire," "Spike Press," "Death Express," and others. Then the logo appears ("World" is inside a chainsaw blade shape). The video ends with the caption "CAUTION SIGN" followed by a clip of a guy being beaten with a sign.
