Gamers eager to reconnect with Sweet Tooth need not fear another delay will separate them from the killer clown, as developer Eat Sleep Play today announced via Twitter that Twisted Metal has gone gold.
Due out on February 14, Twisted Metal was originally scheduled to hit retail on October 4. However, the game was delayed to early 2012 in August, with a February 14 release date announced later that month. A collector's edition of Twisted Metal has not been announced, but gamers who pick up a first-run copy of Twisted Metal will score a free copy of 2001's Twisted Metal Black, via download voucher.
The first installment in the series since 2008's Twisted Metal: Head-On - Extra Twisted Edition for the PlayStation 2, Twisted Metal is being developed by many of the series' original designers at Eat Sleep Play. Besides a campaign mode, the game will sport two-player split-screen action, as well as online battles.
