Sega has revealed details about the new game from Arkedo Studio, the team behind Big Bang Mini and the Arkedo series.
Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is a jubilantly violent and gory platforming adventure starring Ash, a very angry rabbit who is also the prince of Hell.
Ash is propelled on a mission of bloody vengeance when his nemesis - Fat Rabbit - posts incriminating sex pictures of the Prince and his rubber ducky on the 'Hellternet'.
"The divine union between Arkedo and SEGA results in the devilishly good product we can all sinfully be excited about. Hell Yeah!" commented Haruki Satomi, Senior Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America.
The game will be released on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC Digital Download in 2012.

Microsoft Studios is publishing, making the game a good candidate for this year's Summer of Arcade series.
The Xbox Live Arcade version of Minecraft will launch without Kinect functionality, it emerged at Microsoft's recent Spring Showcase.
The Xbox 360's own version of Minecraft, the phenomenally successful indie title from Swedish developer Mojang, was announced at last year's E3, and was originally slated for release late last year.
The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft will also be base on version 1.6.6, which released on PC last May. It's the intention of 4J, who is working together with Microsoft Games Studios and Mojang on the port, to bring the game up to speed with its PC counterpart through a series of patches - one of which will introduce Kinect support.
"1.6.6 is the level playing ground that Microsoft, 4J and Mojang agreed on at the start," lead producer Roger Carpenter told Eurogamer, "At some point we'll announce how the updates are going to come about - we will slowly but surely bring the Xbox version up through the versions."
The Xbox 360 version introduces an in-game wiki, as well as tutorials that run through the foundations of Minecraft. It remains unclear how exactly Kinect will be integrated within the game.
"The one thing we were at great pains to do when we took on the project was, for want of a better phrase, not mess it up," said Carpenter. "Minecraft's so dear to so many people that we had to nail it on a controller, and on Xbox."
Microsoft has unveiled an all-new Kinect-exclusive game for XBLA, with the Wreckateer coming to Xbox 360 later this year.
Developed by Iron Galaxy - a team of veterans from Midway Chicago, and who have recently been responsible for the XBLA port of Street Fighter 3: Third Strike - Wreckateer is a physics-based score attack game.
Play is highly reminiscent of Angry Birds, with the player using a catapult to fire an iron ball at a series of castles which then come tumbling down. Using Kinect players can add after-touch and spin to the ball.
