The "E" rated game -- which incorporates many elements of the feature film including its characters, costumes, and Hell's Kitchen, New York setting -- retails for approximately $30 and is available in major retail locations nationwide.
Said Michael Bell, Encore's CEO, "We are eagerly anticipating the movie premiere and the interest it will generate for the videogame. Daredevil for Nintendo Game Boy Advance furthers the movie experience by including movie stills, costumes and the same gritty New York setting. While the game will be a natural purchase for moviegoers, it will also appeal to comic book fans and gamers."
Added Marvel's Russ Brown, "The legacy of the comic books, the film, super-star status for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, and a strong videogame all combine to make Daredevil a very strong brand. We are eagerly anticipating the movie premiere and videogame launch."
The publisher describes the game this way:
New York's crime gangs have escalated their activities to intolerable levels, and Daredevil is out to stop them. In this action-filled sidescroller, players get to be Daredevil as he fights his way through the underbelly of New York's Hell's Kitchen to defeat these criminals and their boss, the Kingpin. Daredevil runs, jumps, fights and performs acrobatic maneuvers as he battles with the Kingpin, Elektra, Bullseye, and the Sewer King, as well as ninjas and mafia thugs.
A unique feature of the game is "Radar Sense," which allows Daredevil to see invisible enemies and find hidden items. The game also features 23 levels; New York settings from the movie; and lots of power-ups, hidden items and game secrets based on movie details such as Ben Affleck's and Jennifer Garner's costumes.
More information on the game, as well as screenshots, the box front and a trailer, is available at www.daredevilgame.com.
