Woolfe: The Redhood Chronicles PS4

If you go out in the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise – a crazed Little Red Riding Hood gunning for your blood. Belgian indie GRiN – not to be confused with defunct Swedish studio, er, GRIN – has confirmed that strange side-scroller Woolfe: The Redhood Diaries will release on the PlayStation 4 in 2015 – and will be playable at GamesCom later in the year for attendees of the German show.

Much like the Amanda Seyfried movie from a few years back, this promises a dark interpretation of the French fairy tale, depicting an enraged heroine who’s hell bent on getting revenge on toy soldiers for, er, some reason. Judging by the gameplay footage embedded below, the title still looks early, but with a year or so until release, there’s plenty of time for the developer to polish the protagonist’s blade.
