We had a horrible thought this morning that Twisted Metal might get delayed in the UK.

Better late than never though, as the platform holder's just confirmed to MCV that the Eat Sleep Play developed racer will..

We're going to be honest, we don't know a whole lot about Konami's NeverDead
We know it's being developed by British-based studio Rebellion. And we know that the game's protagonist is immortal, able to lose limbs during combat and then pick them up at a later date.
