Marvel and High Moon Studios are teaming up for a game based on the “Merc with a Mouth,” Deadpool.
And before you click play above, know that this definitely has some language, subject matter and violence issues … everything you would expect from Deadpool.
Not that well-known out of comic book circles, Deadpool has been around for some time now and made an appearance in the 2009 Wolverine film as well as a couple of video games. While it isn’t unusual for comic book characters to get their own video games, the idea that this particular one is getting a shot at it without a major film coming out to support it is a bit of a head scratcher.
The new title was announced during a panel today at the San Diego Comic-Con, and not much information was mentioned beyond a 2013 release date and that High Moon is producing it with Nolan North of Uncharted fame voicing the character after he has done so in other incarnations.. A site for the title went live earlier today at DeadpoolGame.com, but it is currently bit difficult to reach due to heavy traffic.
We’ll keep you updated as more info comes out.
