New Diabolical Pitch Screens Arrive

By Michelle Balsan,
Move over Bionic Commando, we've got another, potentially crazier use for a bionic arm coming up in next week's XBLA offering, Diabolical Pitch. You take on the role of a former pitcher who has to use his skills, and his mechanically enhanced throwing arm, to survive a twisted amusement park populated with what looks to be mascot-zombies.

Can't quite wrap your head around that? That's ok, it's from Grasshopper Manufacture, so you're really not expected to. Just know that the title is for Kinect, and that you can play solo or with a buddy.

Oh, and there are screenshots, but they probably don't make what exactly is going on too much clearer. They are, however, very intriguing.
