Tired of the endless stream of comic book movies that seem to flood movie theatres every single summer? Ready to become a hero yourself? Well, you’re in luck.  On Friday, PlayStation released a new gameplay trailer for The Badass Hero, and it looks epic.

Developed by the aptly named Awesome Games Studio, The Badass Hero is a 2D sidescrolling platformer/shooter that takes place literally in a comic book universe. As the hero in different comic book levels, you’ll make your way through the Aztec jungle, kill some Nazis, save the world from an alien invasion, and collect ink to become even more powerful. With forty bosses and randomly generated levels, the badassery won’t end.

Since the game became available on Steam Early Access last year,  Awesome Studio Games has been adding more and more content to the game. Most recently, in January, they added the third comic book level in the game titled The Last Stand of Earth.

You can check out the badass trailer narrated by a badass epic movie trailer voice. The Badass Hero is currently available on Steam Early Access but will also launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch at a later date. You can also read DualShocker’s preview of the game from last year.
