Critical Mass Interactive revealed today that they're making a video game based on the Boondock Saints films. While they're not planning to show off the game just yet, they did provide some important details.
Matt Scibilia, president and CEO of Critical Mass, told G4 that the game will be a "full-on co-op shooter." They're developing it for the PC and Xbox 360, and might make a PS3 version as well. It's not clear whether it will be a full-scale game available through retailers or an episodic, digital release. Regardless, Critical Mass just doesn't want it to be terrible.
"We don't want to do a crap-ass franchise game," Scibilia said. "We're staying true to the content. We're looking to expand the story, not just retell the franchise. The Boondock Saints characters are so strong -- the banter, the relationships between Rocco and the brothers, the Catholicism, that will all be featured in the game."
This co-op shooter wouldn't be the first Boondock Saints game. In late 2010, Split.A.Nickel and Binary Hammer released a Saints top-down shooter through the App Store. Critical Mass' project sounds a lot grander in scale, though.
Critical Mass will show the game off to press at PAX East in April. They're planning to unveil it to the public at E3 this summer.
