Some of you may remember Slain!, an old-school platformer revealed last year to be coming to Wii U. The game appears to be heavily inspired by Castlevania, with all manner of ghouls and monsters doing whatever they can to ruin the protagonist's day. Backed by a heavy metal soundtrack and featuring gratuitous amounts of violence, it definitely looks like one that'll challenge gamers who prefer their games to be 'Nintendo Hard'.

It seems the developers have gone a bit too far with the difficulty, however, and the game has been delayed so gameplay can be tweaked. According to a representative from Wolf Brew Games, "Right now no mortal man or woman could possibly get past Slain!'s intense platforming, traps and monstrosities." As a result, the PC version – which is releasing first – was delayed and now all the console ports are expected sometime between May and July.
