Deadpool: The Game - SDCC 2012 - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey Monday, July 16, 2012

Suck it, Wolverine. The Merc with a Mouth is here breaking fourth wall in an all-new realm: Video games.

This Undead Monday, we take a look at the announcement of the first-ever video game of Deadpool, Marvel's Merc with a Mouth at San Diego Comic-Con International. Following the hostile takeover of Deadpool himself at the Marvel Games panel (as indicated in the following picture), the action-adventure video game simply entitled Deadpool will be featuring The Merc with a Mouth in more fourth wall-shattering adventures courtesy of High Moon Studios and Activision.

With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the cool trailer.

Ever the diligent show-off, Deadpool himself has released the "official press release" from Marvel:

Hey suits, listen up ‘cause I’ve got some pretty sweet news to break. I, DEADPOOL, today announced that I’ve…(ahem…we’ve)…yes, right…WE’VE decided to make a kick-butt, butt-kicking new video game based on the awesome-ing-ist super hero ever known to man (and woman, if you know what we’re sayin’) starring yours truly, ME, DEADPOOL. I know, I know…I pee’d myself a little with excitement just now too (you call that ‘a little?’).

Some of you may know me as the Merc with a Mouth (or the mercenary for hire), what can I say? I have skills! (You know who else has skills?) High Moon Studios has skills, and I hired them to make my game, because they’re awesome, and so am I. But they’re not as awesome as I am, if that’s what you’ve heard. (Who’d you hear that from?) (Wait, listen…you smell something?)
Anywho, where was I? Oh yeah, ME, and my game "Deadpool"! With some cashola I ‘borrowed’ (ha!!! riiight…‘borrowed’) from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (blah blah blah), and some of the big cheeses (mmmmm…cheeeeese) from Marvel Entertainment, my "Deadpool" game will feature all of my favorite things--katanas (check), big guns (and not just these amazing arm muscles) (check), crazy poop-your-pants action (check), hot chicks (check), maybe some of my X-Men friends (well, depending on what they’re wearing), burritos, bouncy houses and of course ME!!! (check) (check) And check!
And now, a quote from me about my game:
"I, Deadpool, ‘hired’ Peter Della Penna and his physically embarrassing team at High Moon Studios for two reasons: First, because of their close proximity to Mexico so I can get fresh, authentic chimichangas delivered daily,” said Deadpool, newly self-appointed Head of High Moon Studios, and Supreme Commander of PR, Marketing, Legal, and just about everything I want to be in charge of at Activision Publishing, Inc. “Second, if High Moon can make an amazing game about big transforming robots look cool, then they can surely make me look amazing in a third-person action video game, from all angles (seriously Peter…my bottom is my good side, so don’t screw this up).”
And now, a quote from that other guy at High Moon Studios:
“We weren’t actually planning on making a Deadpool game,” said Peter Della Penna, formerly Head of High Moon Studios and now second in command. “But,Deadpool came by the studio one day, said he was taking over, and that if I didn’t hire Marvel writer Daniel Way pronto and make the most amazing Deadpool video game, he’d break both of our arms and beat us to death with them. I have kids, so we’re making the game.”
Speaking of ME, for your viewing pleasure (or other pleasure - hehe) check out this awesome teaser trailer and find out more information for my new "Deadpool" video game at this web thingy, and be sure to follow me on what’s-yer-face at and

And here are a couple of screenshots from the trailer.

Deadpool is currently developed by High Moon Studios and will be published by Activision some time in 2013. Nolan North, renowned for his role as Nathan Drake in the Uncharted series who occasionally played the role of Deadpool in other media, will be taking on the role of voice-actor for the game.
