WHA ENTERTAINMENT, INC. ANNOUNCES KICK ASS NEW AND IMPROVED AVAILABLE FOR SONY PLAYSTATION(R) NETWORK (PSN) NOVEMBER 9TH

New York, N.Y. November 3, 2010 - WHA Entertainment, a publisher and developer of entertainment games based on leading IP Franchises, announced today that Kick Ass New And Improved will be available Tuesday, November 9, for the Sony PlayStation Network (PSN). The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and can be downloaded for a low MSRP of $9.99.  The title includes new features, which include a new mission, fights and enemies.

"We are committed to continually updating and improving the game," said Howard Horowitz, Founder and CEO of WHA Entertainment, Inc. "The great thing about today's digital entertainment platforms is the ability for developers to go back and update content for consumers who previously purchased the game as well as new players."

Consumers who have already bought and downloaded the game can visit the PSN store and download Kick Ass New And Improved at no additional cost. Based on the popular comedic superhero fantasy movie, Kick Ass New And Improved introduces several new features that will enhance the action-packed gameplay for the ultimate superhero adventure, including new mission "Frank's Night Club" where players will face new enemies and new fights!  Among other new elements, the new Red Mist Boss fight will feature extra player moves including a double hit spin attack and a toss attack team move for all playable characters.  Additional enhancements throughout the game include AI balancing, sound improvements and improved trophies. 

Kick Ass New And Improved 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 nine 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 features 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 issue of the Kick Ass comic book.   For more information visit www.thekickassgame.com
