Oh dear. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen a game of the movie, but here we are again: Freedom Factory Studios and UIG Entertainment are developing Kick-Ass 2.
For the uninitiated, Freedom Factory are the team behind games like Young Justice: Legacy, Cycling Evolution, and NYC Taxi Simulator, while UIG Entertainment have published about ten million games with “Simulator” in the title. Like Bungee Jumping Simulator, Agricultural Simulator 2011, and Woodcutter Simulator 2013. So… yeah, my hopes aren’t exactly high.
Obviously, you’d think that this would mean Kick-Ass 2 should be titled Amateur Superhero Simulator 2013, which… actually sounds kind of great. But no: it’s an action-adventure/beat-’em-up that lets you play as Kick-Ass or Hit-Girl as you beat up lots of people. This is pretty much all I know, right now.
Screenshots are below, and the game is due out in November. Yes, this November. Next month. My hopes are not high, particularly after seeing those screenshots.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
