Foul Play for PC and Xbox 360 offers gentlemanly brawling

Yes, yes we're very quaint here in England. Top hats, monocles, all of that, everywhere (or in trendy East London where I live, anyway). Continuing the stereotype we titter at knowing the world believes, Mediatonic is bringing gentlemanly side-scrolling fighting to PC and Xbox 360 with Foul Play on September 18.

All the world's a stage, said that Shakespeare chap we've definitely all met, including this game, as it's masquerading as a play about hunting monsters being performed in a Victorian theatre.

See, you're famed demon hunter Baron Dashforth starring in a show about his life, and will need to please the audience by beating seven shades of heck out of the actors playing villains. It also has two-player co-op including Dashforth's sidekick, Scampwick.

Foul Play is due on PC and Xbox Live Arcade on September 18. Hit the official site for more.
