Gotta give some props to Bethesda and their work on promoting Wolfenstein II, as it is some of the most creative and scariest stuff you’ll ever see. Some of the content they’ve been making has been showing us a world in which Germany won World War II, and how that victory affected the way pop-culture in general transformed over the years. Today, we got a glimpse of that as it hit a little close to home for the kid in all of us with a fake superhero show called Blitzmensch.
The character in animated form is a take on the Superfriends while the show itself is a nod to ’66 Batman, showing a German superhero who fights against liberty and justice. It’s an interesting take on the genre, and the animation is about what you would expect from the era. When I first saw this, it reminded me of old Robert Smigel cartoons from SNL, and if you told me this once aired on TV Funhouse, I would have believed you. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is just a couple months away as we’re gearing up for its release on October 27th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Enjoy the weird trailer below!
