Few iconic comic book superheroes have experienced the same degree of redemption as Matt Murdock a.k.a Daredevil has experienced over the last year. After becoming a laughing stock in 2003 when Ben Affleck took on the role, the character has once again become an icon with Marvel’s Netflix series, Daredevil. The show is undeniably amazing, but it’s missing on very important thing: a badass video game tie-in. A new video has just hit the web showcasing the Daredevil title sequence as the intro to a retro video game. Check it out below.
We have to come right out and say it: whoever made this video wasn’t messing around. The visuals look decided low quality (on purpose) and they perfectly mirror the intro sequence from Marvel’s Daredevil, complete with blood flowing over Hell’s Kitchen and all of its landmarks. However, it’s the music that really sells us on this video, it’s a perfect recreation of the Daredevil theme song while still sounding like something that would have echoed through a living room in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Nostalgia at its absolute finest.
Can you imagine how insane of a video game that would be if it actually got made? Perhaps it would come in the form of a gritty side-scroller. As Matt Murdock, the player could start out in the piecemeal Season 1 outfit, with minimal skills. Over time the character could level up the outfit, and acquire new weapons, such as the billy club and the grappling hook that Daredevil received during the events of Season 2. The game could showcase Daredevil’s agility as you bounce across rooftops and beat down hordes of bad guys that try to stop you from exacting violent justice on the New York streets.
Boss battles would also be insane; one could take the form of a fight with a gun-toting Frank Castle, while another could see the player face off against a chain wielding Nobu. The final boss of the game? A giant, white suit wearing Wilson Fisk who can take you down in one punch. I’m sorry if I seem excited, but the gamer in me needs someone to make this game right now.
Any fan of Daredevil and retro gaming should check out the video above. It’s an awesome idea that needs to be made this very instant, and also one that shows painstaking attention to detail. Daredevil Season 2 is currently available on Netflix, so if you haven’t binge-watched you way through it yet, then I don’t know what’s stopping you. Stay tuned for more Daredevil news as it becomes available!
