We’ll never know if it was a planned “leak” or a simple mistake, but the website HitMonkeyGame.com (now offline) has revealed the much rumoured Marvel character that High Moon Studios will be tackling for their next game, and it is bananas. Literally.
The site confirmed that the developer of Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be bringing the little known character Hit-Monkey to the world of gaming. It is an odd, perhaps bold move, given that Hit-Monkey first appeared as recently as 2010 in a Marvel digital one-shot by comic book writer Daniel Way. The killer Japanese Macaque later appeared in a three-issue Deadpool story also written by Way and featuring everyone’s favourite wallcrawler, Spider-Man.
With a larger announcement scheduled for this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con, we’re sure to find out more soon. But the monkey is well and truly out the bag… unless High Moon is playing a nasty trick on the video games community and is secretly making the Deadpool game we are all dying for.
