Deadpool continued his habit of shattering the fourth wall by writing his own press release announcing the addition of Mister Sinister and Psylocke to the upcoming Deadpool game. Deadpool writes:
Sooo, uhhhh, APPARENTLY there are characters in my new upcoming Activision game, DEADPOOL, who are not Deadpool! Right??
I thought it was pretty clear when I said I wanted a true Deadpool game that it would star Deadpool…in every role! My star power shouldn’t be limited to the central protagonist. I should be playing the hero, the anti-hero, the villain who eventually changes sides to join forces against the TRUE villain (me), the romantic interest, the quirky best friend, the comic relief, and at least 8 other characters in fat suits! Is that too much to ask?!
But…I’ve been talking to my therapist…and she says it’s important that I not allow the existence of other people who are not me to determine my own self-worth. I just have to be the best unhinged mutant mercenary I can be. So, here’s a look at some of the…other…characters you can meet in DEADPOOL…
For those unfamiliar with breaking the fourth wall, Deadpool is one of the few comic book characters aware of his own presence inside a comic. He is famous for addressing the reader directly.
The Deadpool game will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on June 25th, 2013.
