Rumored 'Ripper' Details: Jack the Vampire Slayer

Assuming this latest rumor is to be believed, the folks responsible for turning Dante's Inferno into a video game are looking to transform Jack the Ripper into a superhero.

Destructoid reports, via "sources," that the Jack of "The Ripper" is a "supernatural slayer protecting people from demons, vampires and other evil monsters" packing an "assortment of over-the-top weapons" and an "ability that lets him slow down time."

While the project is still unconfirmed, word of "The Ripper" began making the rounds yesterday after Electronic Arts filed file and game-related trademarks on the title, with an overlooked rumor naming Dead Space maker Visceral Games as the developer.
