Sweet suffering tacos! Deadpool, the most ridiculous mutant alive, is bringing his silly game to new-gen this fall…
I’m sure you’ve whined once or twice that the current generation of consoles have far too many old games in new wrapping. I know I whined about how every third and fifth release in a month is a remaster or definitive edition of some kind. That usually makes me bored, but not when Marvel’s Murderous Mutant of Mirth is finally returning to games. Announced by GameStop of all people, the Deadpool Game is coming to PS4 and Xbox One November 17.

Yes, as someone who plays pretty much every comic book game around, I can say that the gameplay in Deadpool wasn’t great. HOWEVER, it’s a damn funny game, and gets Deadpool with the same level of accuracy as Batman in the Arkham Knight games. Wade Wilson is a mega-killer, a total goofball, he’s constantly breaking the fourth wall, he’s annoying Cable, and he’s basically acting like the character ripped right off the page. Fans of the character owed it to themselves to give it a rental, which is why it was sad that it barely stayed on the shelf for a matter of months.
Around the same time Marvel vs. Capcom 3 vanished from digital shelves, so too did Deadpool, seemingly entering the abyss that all licensed games eventually fall into. But it looks like Marvel and Activision kissed and made up enough to get together a new-gen rerelease, as well as putting Deadpool back on Steam.
The game comes with a spiffier–looking version of the campaign, as well as all the DLC included too, all for $50? Is that too high a price for an old game? Or are you just happy to see Mr. Wilson available once more? Tell us in the comments!
