The Punisher: No Mercy PSN Exclusive
Okay, so the movies based on The Punisher haven't been very good, and if there have been any video games...well, we're not aware of them, and we don't wanna be, either. We're sure they exist, but they're probably not worth mentioning, right? Even so, we have faith that Zen Studios will make The Punisher: No Mercy a worthwhile title for the PSN.
Just announced today over at the official PlayStation blog, Zen Studios Managing Director Zsolt Kigyossy has revealed that this game is in development and they're not skimping on the technology just because it's a downloadable title. They're using the Unreal Engine 3 in this first-person shooter, and Kigyossy says their "main focus is to create an awesome online multiplayer experience with the style and grit from the Punisher's world, complete with characters like Jigsaw, Bushwacker, Barracuda, and even Silver Sable." He also reminds everyone that the entire studio is full of "Marvel True Believers," which hopefully means they won't sully Marvel's good name with another mediocre Punisher adaptation in another entertainment venue outside comics. Oh, and if you're wondering, this is an exclusive release for the PSN, so the Xbox Live Marketplace won't be getting No Mercy. There are exclusives and multiplatform titles online too, you know.
If you want to follow along with the progress and updates, visit the game's official site from time to time. Hopefully, we'll get more game details soon, along with a release date. And by the way, "Zsolt" may be one of the most kick-ass first names in history...and the fact that he works at Zen Studios makes it even more kick-ass.
