Kick-Ass game coming to PS3

PSN title will arrive at end of April

A video game adaptation of comic book movie Kick-Ass will hit PSN on April 29th - and is fully playable on PS3.

Developed and published by WHA Entertainment, the title will cost $14.99 in the US - so you can expect it for around £8.

It's been rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

The title is a third-person 3D action fighting game, where the player can play and control modern day super heroes based on the super characters found in the film of the same name.

Gamers will be able to play as the three primary characters in the movie - Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy.


Kick-Ass follows the story of the movie, and features multiple environments within New York City.

There's 12 story missions, plus two bonus rounds. And the publisher promises 'plenty of gore'. Joy.

Multiplayer local co-op gameplay is also available - but not online, it appears.

Bonus points also unlock the complete first edition of the Kick Ass comic book.

"We are excited to provide players a closer look at the gameplay and characters involved in Kick-Ass," said Howard Horowitz, Founder and CEO of WHA Entertainment.

"Kick-Ass is set to deliver non-stop superhero action to gamers, and what could be more fun than getting to play as one of the three super heroes based on the super characters featured in the movie?"
