DescriptionIt has been three months since your escape from the Splatterhouse in the first game. Having been unable to save Jennifer, you keep having the recurring dream where she is begging you to come and rescue her. The mask from the Splatterhouse appears and promises that there is still a chance to save her. There is a downside to it, though. Wearing the mask of terror will fill you with feral rage and an insatiable hunger for blood.
Heavily influenced by films such as Evil Dead 2, the game takes you through eight, side-scrolling stages. Rick has a basic set of punches, kicks and flying kicks, but he can pick up additional weapons such as a lead pipes, bones, bombs, a shotgun and a chainsaw for the ultimate bloodfest, while fighting skulls, razor fish and giant demons. A boss, requiring a specific pattern of moves, awaits you at the end of each stage.

MilestoneThis was the first M-rated game released for the Wii's Virtual Console.
RumorsRegardless of what many people seem to believe, there never has been a Splatterhouse 2 arcade game. It was either the original Splatterhouse, a slightly altered version, or a system running the Genesis version. Nevertheless, it was listed on The Killer List Of Video Games for quite some time until it was finally corrected.
Version differencesThe Japanese version of the game is radically different from the European and American release. The plotline is different and more coherent with Splatterhouse 3. The mask isn't the skull one featured on EU/USA releases but is a sort of kabuki-like faceless white mask (like the one on the Japanese game cover).
