|Input||Wii Remote and Nunchuk|
From a third-person perspective, the player controls Jack, a hulking brute with a chainsaw for an arm, as he competes in a violent TV show. Using the Wii Remote's Nunchuk add-on to move Jack, by gesturing the Wii Remote, players perform brutal melee attacks on enemies. Also Jack can use objects around the environment, such as impaling an enemy's head with a sign post saying "Caution Sign," in an ironic way.
The game will feature extreme, over-the-top violence, but designer Shigenori Nishikawa intends it to be seen in a comical light despite the dark tone of the game. For example, in a mini-game called "Man Darts," players must hit enemies onto a giant dartboard with a baseball bat to score points. However, because of the intended level of violence, PlatinumGames is unsure of whether or not the game will ultimately be released in Japan, stating, "In certain markets there are a lot of limitations on the amount of violence you can show, so we definitely have the Western market much more in mind."
In MadWorld, Varrigan City has become a target for a group of terrorists known as "The Organizers." The Organizers have taken over the city and transformed it into the setting for a game show called "Death Watch," where the city's citizens are being forced to fight for their lives against mysterious enemies.
