New York, N.Y. April 14, 2010 - WHA Entertainment, a publisher and developer of entertainment games based on leading IP Franchises, announced today that it has released a new gameplay trailer and a batch of screenshots for Kick-Ass, the upcoming worldwide game release for the Sony PlayStation Network (PSN), launching April 29.
Additionally, WHA Entertainment confirmed that the MSRP for the PSN version of the superhero action game would be $14.99. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
"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, Inc. "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?"
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 super characters found in the film of the same name. 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 plus 2 bonus rounds and encounter frantic super hero action as they face petty thugs and powerful mob bosses. 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!
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 edition of the Kick Ass comic book. There are many additional Kick-Ass game features to play.
