Night Slashers X Featuring Ash

By 04.14.20News

We recently came across a fanmade beat’em up game called Night Slasher X. It’s based on the Data East arcade classic Night Slashers and features Ash as a playable character. It’s pretty awesome! Something to play while you self-isolate.

Night Slashers X is an excellent widescreen fan-made beat’em up based on the Data East arcade classic Night Slashers, which sees three monster hunters and Ash from The Evil Dead punching, kicking, hacking and blasting their way through hordes of undead monstrosities.

Created in OpenBOR, the gameplay in Night Slashers X is pretty similar to the original 1993 Night Slashers game, but it has upgraded visuals, widescreen and more enemies. The three original playable characters (Jake Hunter, Christopher Smith, and Zhao Hong Hua) are all present, each with their own unique move-sets, and they’re joined by Ash from The Evil Dead. Ash can’t pick up and use weapons, but he’s pretty deadly anyway, with a boomstick and a trademark arm-mounted chainsaw to keep the monsters at bay.
