News: Mike Mignola's classic comic comes to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP.
A superhero who's sole superpower seems to be punch everything really hard might seem a little lame. But then, you wouldn't want to say that to Hellboy's face would you? Mike Mignola's classic comic creation was turned into a movie a few years back and the big red one is now scheduled for an Xbox 360, PS3 and PSP video game sometime in 2007.
Published by Konami and developed by Krome Studios, Hellboy has been tasked with stopping Hermann von Klempt from taking over the world and to do that he'll be given a context-sensitive fighting system that will be adaptable for any number of opponents.
"Hellboy unleashes the raw power of the comic book icon with devastating hand to hand combat, an intricate grappling system and fully destructible environments," said Wyman Jung, Associate Product Manager at Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "Followers of the comic book and movie will delight at being able to control the sheer power their favorite sharp tongued hero, while fans of action games will immediately be drawn into the game's spectacular graphics and intuitive yet strategic gameplay."
The game will include a two-player co-op mode and fully destructible environments that can then be used as weapons. On that note, the corpses of your crushed opponents can also be used as weapons.
Oh yeah, we'll be keeping a close eye on Hellboy. More soon.
