Deadpool: 'We're getting it right' - High Moon

Deadpool hasn't fared well in other media, and let's not even get started on his portrayal in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But Transformers developer High Moon Studios believes it's going to do the merc with a mouth justice, and here's why.

Speaking with AusGamers, High Moon's game director Sean Miller about how much it respects the character and Marvel's zany approach to his stories.

Miller explained, "We have, I think, an understanding of what makes Deadpool special and we worked with Marvel to make sure that we do; we’re getting it right. We’re staying true to the comic book roots of the character but also drawing from the things that we feel are successful in other areas; videogames, all of that other stuff."

The best part, Miller said, is that Marvel has given the studio its full blessing, "We’re coming at it as fans saying, this is the game that we’d like to play as Deadpool. And the most exciting thing is that Marvel is totally behind it."

"They’re on board with making this a fun experience, and they’re not afraid of making fun of the things that need to get made fun of. It’s the thing that excites them about Deadpool as a character - that it offers a different spin on the superhero universe", Miller concluded.

Deadpool will stay true to the comics, says Miller, and he confirmed many similarities, such as voices inside the character's head driving progressions, trash talking other famous Marvel characters like Psylocke and generally having a ball killing bad guys.

Deadpool will launch on PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2013.
