Avenged Sevenfold has released the trailer for Hail To The King: The Animated Series. In an update to fans M Shadows announced that the animated series will debut on Dec 15th and serve as a backstory to their upcoming game Hail To The King: Deathbat. In the game, you’ll be able to unlock 16 pieces of never-before-seen artwork from their albums, 7 new Cam Rackam paintings, 7 new songs from Avenged Sevenfold that are “theme songs for each level done in an old school video game fashion with a new school twist” and re-imagined versions of older songs. The trailer for the game will also debut on Dec 15th with an early 2014 release date as the game and series go hand-in-hand. When the series, which tells the story “before” the game, ends then the game will pick up.
