More Latino heat from Eidos

For those who didn’t get a chance to experience “Just Cause” and all of its flamenco guitar playing splendor, Eidos announced “Chili Con Carnage” (what, “Carnage Asada” was taken?), a third-person action shoot-em-up for the PlayStation Portable. The game is set for a spring 2007 release.

The hero is a dude named Ramiro Cruz, who’s out to avenge his dad’s death by unleashing hell on the drug cartel and the boss who killed him. The appeal here is in the game’s delivery — it’s meant to be an over-the-top, humorous gun party, so you’ll have a truckload of weapons, as well as “spicy, gravity-defying” moves. Which is good, since I was getting a little tired of the mild, not-so-spicy moves. Let’s change things up.

Oh, and there’s exploding chickens in this game — which I’m actually really interested in seeing. Perhaps there could some advertising opportunities for El Pollo Loco, Baja Fresh and Chipotle.

Here are a few shots:




Whoa — they weren’t kidding about the whole spicy moves thing. They’re real. Spicy moves are real.

    That’s also known as “Total Overdose” on the PC for which a demo is available. Spicy!
