Revision3 announced the launch of its latest series, Death Battle!, which places two or more characters from video games, cult movies, and pop culture in an all-out, no holds barred slugfest to the death.
The series, created by Ben Singer and executive produced by Craig Skistimas of ScrewAttack, feature fictional hosts, Wiz and Boomstick, who guide viewers through each combatants’ arsenal and skill-set before the battle begins. The first episode pits Star Wars’ Bobba Fett against Metroid’s Samus Aran—two of the most well known space bounty hunters.
“We couldn’t be more happy to be working with ScrewAttack,” said Ryan Vance, Vice President of Programming and Production at Revision3. “Craig and Ben, and their team, have created an extremely original and entertaining show. We think Death Battle! is a perfect fit for Revision3 and we’re excited to bring the show to our viewers.”
“Death Battle! is a show that is all about kicking ass and we think people will be talking about what happens in each episode for a while,” said Craig Skistimas, Program Director of ScrewAttack. “Ultimately we want people to be so entertained by Death Battle! that whatever they thought was entertaining before watching it will no longer bring them enjoyment.”
Upcoming episodes will feature Street Fighter’s Akuma vs Mortal Kombat’s Shang Tsung and Marvel Comic’s Rogue vs DC Comics’ Wonder Woman. New episodes air every other Tuesday.
