iPhone Gets Kick-Ass In April

While news of a superhero movie tie-in is pretty groan-inducing for console gamers, iPhone gamers should know to get excited. While these games are often terrible on consoles, their iPhone versions (like Iron Man) are usually quite good, and much cheaper.

The latest game to take a swipe at the iPhone superhero market is the upcoming Kick-Ass, a thriller about non-superhero teens who take up the cape to stop crime. The iPhone game is a fully 3D brawler set in levels based on the movie, and will allow players to control one of three characters from the movie: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, and Big Daddy.

WHA Entertainment, the developer behind the game, promises to stay true to the film with tons of action and gore. We’ll get to see more of the game when it makes its official debut at the Game Developers Conference next month.

Currently the game is slated to launch on April 15, to coincide with the film’s release on April 16. You can check out the trailer below.
