New York, N.Y. April 29, 2010 - WHA Entertainment, a publisher and developer of entertainment games based on leading IP Franchises, announced today that Kick-Ass has launched in the U.S. and Canada for the Sony PlayStation Network (PSN) for an MSRP of $14.99. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. Additionally, WHA Entertainment confirmed that the superhero action game will launch in Europe (U.K.) on Wednesday, May 5th.
"Kick-Ass is all about non-stop superhero action, and now everyone who enjoyed the movie at the theater and fans of the comic book can become a super hero in their own living space," said Howard Horowitz, Founder and CEO of WHA Entertainment, Inc. "Who wouldn't want to play as Kick-Ass, Big Daddy and Hit Girl, the three super heroes based on the previous weeks' # 1 movie in the U.S."
Kick-Ass is a fully 3D action fighting game set in the third-person perspective, where the player can play and control modern day super heroes based on the storyline of the movie. Gamers will be able to play as the three primary characters in the film - Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy. The story-driven game draws heavily from the strengths of the intellectual property; an action combat game where the characters finally grow sick of the crime around them, and decide that they will do something about it.
Featuring multiple environments within New York City, players will be faced with twelve story missions including 2 bonus rounds and encounter frantic super hero action as they face petty thugs and powerful mob bosses, eventually bringing down Frank D'Amico. Players will also have a blast with sub-missions and mini-games, to add even more gameplay to the mix. Staying true to the intellectual property, the game will feature visceral combat and plenty of gore, as the player's main goal is to bring justice back to the city, no matter what the cost! The final mission ratchets up the action to an entirely new dimension, when players pilot the already-legendary jet pack from the movie's climactic final battle scene. Cut loose with twin Gatling guns, cutting down enemies in a barrage of hot lead and shattered glass - but don't forget to keep moving, or you'll be blown out of the sky in a hail of return fire and bazooka shells!
Featuring multiplayer local co-op gameplay, Kick-Ass brings an unsurpassed integration of missions given via friend requests from the FACESPACE social networking site. Bonus points also unlock the complete first issue of the Kick Ass comic book. Many additional Kick Ass game features to play and become a superhero!
