You know Kick-Ass right? That awesome movie that released a few months ago. Well this week we see the release of Kick-Ass on Blu-ray & DVD and to celebrate that, the game adaptation on PSN gets a timely price drop from $14.99 to $9.99. So if you haven’t bought the game yet, this would be the best time to do it.
I have not played the game yet (I don’t own a PS3, oh the shame) but I recently watched the movie and thought it was great and the game doesn’t look too bad as well. Check out the press release and a trailer below and let us know if you will be picking this game up.
WHA ENTERTAINMENT, INC. ANNOUNCES PRICE REDUCTION FOR KICK-ASS FOR SONY PLAYSTATION®NETWORK (PSN)
A New Lower Price Just In Time For The Release Of Kick Ass The Movie On DVD
New York, N.Y. August 02, 2010 – WHA Entertainment, a publisher and developer of entertainment games based on leading IP Franchises, announced today a new lower price of $9.99 for Kick-Ass for the Sony PlayStation Network (PSN). The new lower price comes just in time for the release of the major motion picture on DVD and Blue Ray, which are both available starting tomorrow August 3rd. Kick-Ass is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
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.
“One of the most popular action movies of the year, Kick Ass wowed both fans and critics and the DVD is sure to become a collector’s item,”
said Howard Horowitz, Founder and CEO of WHA Entertainment, Inc. “We wanted to make sure the game is available to as many of the movie fans as possible so that is why we are making the move to this new lower price point for the game. Now all the fans out there can enjoy the supercharged action on PSN.”
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! 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 edition of the Kick Ass comic book. Many additional Kick Ass game features to play and become a superhero!
