High Moon Studios is going all out on the development for their upcoming video game based on Marvel’s “Merc With A Mouth” Deadpool.
Two new characters from the Marvel universe have been revealed as a part of the game’s hero/villain roster – Mister Sinister and X-Men’s Psylocke. Check out the pics (and Deadpool’s hilarious description of them below):
Deadpool took some time out of his busy mercenary schedule to post a few words about his game’s newest members, too:
Sooo, uhhhh, APPARENTLY there are characters in my new upcoming Activision game, DEADPOOL, who are not Deadpool! Right??
I thought it was pretty clear when I said I wanted a true Deadpool game that it would star Deadpool…in every role! My star power shouldn’t be limited to the central protagonist. I should be playing the hero, the anti-hero, the villain who eventually changes sides to join forces against the TRUE villain (me), the romantic interest, the quirky best friend, the comic relief, and at least 8 other characters in fat suits! Is that too much to ask?!
But…I’ve been talking to my therapist…and she says it’s important that I not allow the existence of other people who are not me to determine my own self-worth. I just have to be the best unhinged mutant mercenary I can be. So, here’s a look at some of the…other…characters you can meet in DEADPOOL.
Long time writer for the Deadpool comic, Daniel Way, is penning the story for this third-person shooter. Check out the latest trailer for this comic book-themed shooter above. For a preview of the game, check out this gameplay vid from Rev3Games below.
Deadpool will be available on June 25, 2013 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
