Frozen Codebase has announced that the video game adaptation of comic book movie Kick-Ass will finally hit PSN this week. According to Ben Geisler, President of Frozen Codebase, the third-person 3D action fighting game will be based on the action-comedy superhero film but will have more depth:
“The game is a fine blend of the most action-packed parts of both facets of this incredible story. You can play the role of Kick-Ass, a dorky high school kid who is sick of seeing people around him doing nothing to stop crimes. You can also play as Hit Girl, a 90-pound powderkeg of badness. Hit Girl has been trained by her father (Big Daddy — also playable) to be a ruthlessly effective mercenary and assassin.”
“The game tells a story which closely follows the movie and comic book, but we also go into considerably more depth on the drug trade. Kick-Ass begins to chase after thugs you only briefly see in the movie (such as Tre Fernandez and Cheadle). We also added an Arena mode because it felt fun to fight enemy after enemy in a seemingly never-ending manner.”
“But we’re not done! Stay tuned, — we’ll be adding multiplayer as a downloadable content update!”
The game will be available on PSN this Thursday for $14.99.
