I’m not a huge Marvel Comics fan, but I have a soft spot in my heart for Deadpool. The Marvel anti-hero has enjoyed a massive surge in popularity over the past few years, and it’s surprising that he hasn’t gotten his own game yet. That all changes this year with High Moon Studio’s Deadpool: The Game.
We got our first look at the Deadpool game at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, but we haven’t seen much from it since. The veil was lifted somewhat today in the form of a new trailer that shows more gameplay and even more of the lunacy that we can expect from what may be the craziest super hero game ever made.
There are certainly going to be better games released this year, but I have hard time thinking of any game that could be funnier than Deadpool: The Game. The only thing I can think of is a scenario where BioShock Infinite turns out to be a buddy cop comedy set in a whacky sky city instead of the critique on religious fanaticism and American exceptionalism it appears to be. Even then, Deadpool may be the funnier game.
There’s no word yet on when Deadpool: The Game will be released, but it’s coming to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC sometime in 2013.
