Blood Dragon was announced this time last year, leading to much speculation that it was fake but looked totally awesome. That teaser however had some serious work put into it, much more that we have been given this time. For this teaser we have been given a wallpaper in the background of a picture posted on twitter... not exactly definitive.
More info after the jump...
The title of the game 'Blood Dragon III: Vietnam War 2' is completely ridiculous, and so, must be fake... right? I mean, it's a pretty great name. There is something Pratchett-esque about it; for one, some of his books sound like they could be sequels to Blood Dragon('The Science of Discworld IV: Judgment Day'), and he himself did say that his writing allows him "...to bend the universe around the story" and likes to have fun with his stories.
So, where did we get this picture? Well, Dean Evans, Creative Director of Blood Dragon, posted this Tweet:

After this tweet was posted Evans followed up with:
This would be a killer game/movie/comic/revolution. Solid work from @AndyBelanger #vietnamwar2 pic.twitter.com/558pfSqGgt— Dean Evans (@SpleenZilla) kwiecień 1, 2014
This has the same two legged robot-killers as the first one, which seem to be taken from Robocop, those aliens at the front look exactly like Giger's 'Alien' design. Also, the creature to the right is an arachnid from 'Starship Troopers'?
If we look at this from a practical point of view though, Blood Dragon was a huge success and there is no real reason not to follow up with a sequel.
Psyched about it? Let us know in the comments.
