To say that we’re excited about David Jaffe’s next M-rated entry into the Twisted Metal franchise is a bit of an understatement. Finally another reason to dust off the PlayStation 3 and get back to some serious gaming. Even better? Upon the game’s February 14th release it’s not coming alone!

In a recent video posted over at the official PlayStation blog, creator and all around video game makin’ badass David Jaffe revealed that the first run of Twisted Metal on PlayStation 3 will come with a PSN voucher for Twisted Metal Black, the PlayStation 2 classic that came out back in 2001. It’s unclear whether this version of the game will have Trophies or not, but we’ll know soon enough!

Twisted Metal, available exclusively from Sony and director David Jaffe, will be released onto the world on February 14th, 2012. Mark your calendars. Warm up your fingers. Let the games begin.

Twisted Metal®, the longest running franchise in PlayStation® history and the multi-million selling series, is now back, exclusively on the PS3™ system. David Jaffe and Scott Campbell, co-founders of Eat Sleep Play and the original creative team behind Twisted Metal, bring back the dark humor, fast-action gameplay and a world of cars, guns and destruction.

With four factions battling for control, players step into the combat boots of a twisted disciple in a high octane, highly destructible world. Players fight for the prize of one wish fulfilled by the stylishly evil Calypso, the mastermind behind the Twisted Metal tournament. Disciples strategically dismantle opponents in vehicles loaded with weapons of Twisted destruction.

With a robust online system, players unleash destruction with up to 16 players through PlayStation®Network (“PSN”) and battle through a variety of favorite and new game modes.

Twisted Metal carved out its own unique gaming genre. No other title has Twisted Metal’s perfect mix of dark humor and personality along with massive destruction in a distinctive atmosphere and vehicles and weapons that act as extensions of each character.

High atop his penthouse office, a mysterious ringleader named Calypso lords over the contest of vehicle combat known as Twisted Metal. He returns again to host the ultimate contest of skill and destruction. Contestants have been chosen to compete and, should they emerge victorious, win whatever prize their heart desires.
