Late Avenged Sevenfold Drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan to Appear as Character in Video Game ‘Hail to the King: Deathbat’

Avenged-SevenfoldAvenged Sevenfold will be launching a mobile video game, Hail to the King: Deathbat, this summer.

In a recent interview for the upcoming issue of Revolver, vocalist M.Shadows spoke about the various special powers the characters would have and how the late Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan would appear in the game.

Well, for instance, Arin [Ilejay, drums] really wanted a blade in each hand with a boomerang effect so that they would come back to him. We couldn’t do that, so we compromised and gave him a double-sided sword. Zacky [Vengeance,guitar] wanted a baseball bat—he throws rocks at people, and mashes them with a bat. Synyster Gates [guitar] has a little demon that runs around with him—and when you use his magic powers, you hear one of his dive-bombs, which he recorded specially for it. Johnny [Christ, bass] has the “Hell Sword,” which rains blood on people, and I have “Shadows Sight,” which is like a black plume of smoke that you inhale in your lungs. We all did stupid voiceovers for it when we were a little inebriated. [Laughs] Also, with the blessing of his parents, we put The Rev in the game. Once you unlock his character, you can use him as your comrade to help you through the levels.

The game follows the band’s mascot, Deathbat, as he attempts to reclaim the underworld from the evil Dark Andronikos. Watch a trailer for the game below.
