UPDATE: Today, SEGA revealed more letters in their teaser image.

SEGA | Guts Will Be Sp___ed.

I’ve seen many a theory since posting this image up yesterday. I’m believing more and more that on October 29th, guts will be spelled. This is an allusion to The Typing of the Dead. Many are hoping that The Typing of the Dead will get some sort of an HD remake, and that this tease confirms it.


Just a little while ago, a teaser image appeared on SEGA’s official Facebook page. In a sort of slimy-green font, it reads, “On OCTOBER 29TH, GUTS WILL BE _______.” There’s been plenty of speculation over what that seven-letter word could be already, but I suppose we’ll know for sure on Tuesday.

SEGA | Guts Will Be...

Given the nature of the words and the choice of font, as well as the close proximity to Halloween, I’m prone to guessing it could be House of the Dead-related. But there are plenty of green and gooey properties from SEGA that shouldn’t be underestimated in this age of retro revivals. Does anyone remember The Ooze, for example? I’m almost tempted to compile a list of long-forgotten SEGA properties involving guts spilling and splattering.

We’ll be sure to let you all know what’s revealed when the time comes. In the meantime, I welcome all speculation. What do you think it could be?
