She doesn’t have to die, Rick. We can save her. Go back to the house.
The original Splatterhouse was an arcade game. Similar to my experience with Ghouls ‘n’ Ghosts, I have never, even to this day, seen a Splatterhouse arcade cabinet. It was ported to the Turbografx in the US (with some minor changes, including changing protagonist Rick’s mask from white to red in order to cut down on his similarities to a certain famous movie slasher in a white mask). I also never played this version. I wanted a Turbografx very badly as a young man, and never got one. It didn’t do well in the US as we all know, and my mom did her homework (in the form of asking Don, the owner of the local rental store where I rented all of the games I played) and discovered that a Genesis or SNES would be a better purchase. I went with the Genesis (initially, I would eventually be “that kid” and have both).
