A post-modern deconstruction of a classic fairy tale (on the Nintendo DS, with zombies)

Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ.

  • 'My, grandmother, what a big health bar you have.'

  • It's like Evil Dead I meets Evil Dead II meets, um, the Brothers Grimm. No Bruce Campbell connection as far as we know though.

  • The game is set for release later this year on the Nintendo DS.

  • The action appears to involve kicking arse and taking names, minus the taking names part.

  • Expect appearances from Gretel, Pinocchio, the Three Little Pigs, Sleeping Beauty and Zombzilla(!)

  • The stoy goes: After Little Red Riding Hood saves her grandmother from the Wolf, um, zombies invade.

  • It's possible that this screenshot will disturb our sleep for quite some time to come.

  • Precious childhood memories can often be destroyed by modern remakes, reinterpretations and sequels — yeah, we're looking at you George Lucas. However, zombies, BBQs and, er, fairy tales are three of our favourite things — so Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ for the Nintendo DS can only be described as "freaking awesome", and that's before we know anything about it. (It's only a pity that it doesn't seem to involve ninjas and pirates.)

  • That's Little Red Riding Hood on the left.

  • Fearsome Barney the Dinosaur zombies. Perhaps.
