Avenged Sevenfold's M.Shadows about 'Hail to the King: Deathbat': "I think doing a second one"

M.Shadows talked with Full Metal Jackie about 'Hail To The King: Deathbat' video game and more. Below you can read an excerpt:


Some video games are actually episodic. ‘Madden NFL’ is on its 15th version. Is ‘Hail to the King: Death Bat’ and its characters the start of a gaming franchise?
That would be entirely up to the fans. I have a feeling that this game will probably garner some kind of cult following. If it grows outside of that then we’d love to make more. We’d love to make more anyway. I think doing a second one, regardless of what the reaction is, is probably in the cards. If the second one comes out and everyone loves the game then there’s no reason for us not to make them.
Considering how much I’ve enjoyed making it, and how much the band enjoyed making the music and just being a part of the process. We’ll do it until it doesn’t make us happy anymore. Right now, we have this cycle where we go on tour for a year, two years at a time. Then we get sick of touring and we want to write a new record then we go and write a record, then you just want to get out of the studio and tour again. There’s no reason why we can’t throw making games into that mix as well, we like to work and we like being creative in that way.
