Christmas Massacre is an upcoming PS1-styled horror game that is inspired by the classic gaming era. The game is scheduled to launch on PlayStation on 17 November and features a mass murdering Santa Claus as he walks around the town butchering all the residents in his way.
Santa uses knives and even a flamethrower to kill people. In the trailer, he is even seen using the flamethrower to burn children in a school. The game also features a “Doll Mode” where players can shrink down to a Chunky-sized toy and kill people. The game seems to simply be about murdering people as fast as possible. Oh – and there’s a talking Christmas tree.
Christmas Massacre seems to be up there with other ultra-violent games back in the day including Manhunt and Hatred. The game is also too violent for Xbox and Nintendo according to the official Twitter account.
When asked whether or not Christmas Massacre will launch on other platforms besides PlayStation, the account claims it is “too crazy for Switch” and “too crazy for Xbox”. At the moment it isn’t exactly clear what “too crazy” means. We don’t know if Nintendo and Microsoft denied certification for Christmas Massacre or whether the game had other issues preventing its launch.
Christmas Massacre might be violent but other ultra-violent games have launched across both the Nintendo Switch and Xbox in the past. So it sounds a bit fishy. However, I doubt Christmas Massacre will end up being anything worth your time in the first place. So if you’re on Xbox and Nintendo, don’t feel bad. Watch the trailer below. The game is launching on PS4 and PS5. It is already available on Steam.
