Daredevil coming to PS2
Encore has announced that it has reached an agreement with Marvel Enterprises to release games based on the Daredevil superhero. The game will feature a variety of familiar characters from the comic book series. Elektra, the Femme Fatale and proficient in the martial arts, Bullseye, a ruthless assassin determined to murder Daredevil, and the Kingpin, ruler of the east coast. The game's release will go along with the release of the upcoming Daredevil feature film starring Ben Affleck, which will arrive in late 2002.
"Marvel's Daredevil is an enormously popular character with a huge fan base who are eagerly awaiting this video game," said Michael Bell, chairman and CEO of Encore. "The debut of the console game and the [upcoming] live-action film will not only dramatically expand that fan base, but also propel Daredevil into mainstream popular culture."
