Kick-Ass 2’s game tie-in coming next month

Kick-Ass 2’s game tie-in coming next month

Kick-Ass 2 - 03

A new trailer shows that the Kick-Ass 2 game tie-in I laughed at last year isn’t dead: it was just delayed until May 2014.

Last I heard, Kick-Ass 2 was due out in November 2013. Now, in fairness, I took one look at the screenshots and immediately began snarking, so this delay can only be a good thing for the game’s eventual quality. I’m still not going to claim I’m even remotely hopeful, though, particularly after looking at the trailer below. It, uh… it doesn’t look good. It’s definitely got sound effects, though! And probably some music, too!

Kick-Ass 2 is Freedom Factory Studios and UIG Entertainment’s tie-in to last year’s not-particularly-highly-rated superhero action film. It’s a “classic beat-em-up” with “brutal finishing moves and animations straight from the movie and comic book.” You’ll be playing as both Kick-Ass and Hit-Girl, and you’ll punch lots of thugs on your way to take on The Motherfucker.

Have a look at the trailer below, and get ready to say “well, those tiny half-second snippets look slightly less horrible than before.” I’m not going to promise that we’ll be reviewing this, but if I have spare cash, spare time, and I’m feeling particularly masochistic, then you never know. Stranger things have happened.

    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 about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning 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.
