Bloody Roar announcement was a fake

Turns out that Bloody Roar announcement from the "Hudson" Twitter account last week was a fake. As GameSetWatch notes, the ruse was exposed when the account tweeted what was supposed to be the first image, but was actually an image stating "You all been trolled!" It turns out this fake Hudson Twitter account committed itself to a very long con for the purpose of messing with Bloody Roar fans.

There is apparently a real Hudson Twitter account, but it hasn't been used since 2010. When we contacted Hudson parent company Konami for comment, the publisher simply told us it was "looking into this."

Sorry, Bloody Roar fans.
