Deadpool smashes the fourth wall (and everything else) in his new launch trailer

deadpool-bannerFor the longest time, Superhero games were a hit or miss genre.  Actually, mostly miss.  Thanks to the Arkham series of Batman games, that’s no longer the case.  Deadpool is about to get a big budget action game of his own, and if the launch trailer is any indication, it’s going to be everything you’d expect from the unstable antihero. 

The launch trailer debuted earlier today over at IGN, and it’s two minutes and nine seconds of over the top action and insanity.  In case you’re not familiar with the character of Deadpool, he’s… well, he’s… you’ll just have to watch this and find out.

Yo, Deadpool!  I’m really happy for you, and Imma let you finish, but Saints Row 4 had the best dubstep in a trailer of all time.  Of all time!

I can’t decide what my favorite part is.  Probably Deadpool slapping Wolverine repeatedly in the face.  Or maybe him riding on a winged tiger through a rainbow.  So hard to choose!

Deadpool was developed by High Moon Studios, who have spent the last few years cranking out a series of fairly decent Transformers games, so they’re no slouches when it comes to making games with rampant mayhem and destruction.  Deadpool will be a mixture of gun, sword, and melee combat, and will feature a progressive combo system.  The story is being written by Deadpool comic veteran Daniel Way, and in typical Deadpool fashion, exists in multiple layers of reality.  The meta-story involves Deadpool taking everyone in High Moon Studios hostage, and forcing them to make the most amazing game ever, starring himself.  The in-game story has Deadpool seeking revenge for a botched assassination job, and features appearances from other Marvel superheroes including Wolverine, Cable, Domino, Rogue, and Psylocke.

Deadpool will be released on June 25 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
