January 18 will be known as the day of punishment, as THQ announced this morning the release of [i]The Punisher[/i], their highly anticipated action title. Based on one of the darkest antiheroes on Marvel’s roster, [i]The Punisher[/i] looks to put gameplay first by adding an innovative interrogating system that allows players to directly control the amount of “punishment” they want to dish out.
“Our main focus when developing The Punisher was to create an experience long-standing fans of the graphic series would appreciate, while introducing innovative game play to excite today’s gamer,” said Dan Cermak, vice president of product development, Volition. “With the help of the original comic creators, we have developed a hardcore game that stays true to The Punisher’s roots.”
[i]The Punisher[/i] will retail for $39.99 and ship for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC.
