Jackass the Game for the PlayStation 2 and PSP Hits Retail Today

Red Mile Entertainment and MTV Games announced today the release of Jackass the game for the PlayStation 2 and PSP

Inspired by the popular MTV television series and hugely successful MTV Films Jackass and Jackass number two, Jackass the game is a natural extension of the Jackass property, taking it to new heights as the highly anticipated mission-based action adventure game comes to videogame systems for the first time. Jackass the game allows players to interact and play the roles of Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Jason “Wee Man” Acuna and many others from the Jackass gang as they virtually perform more than 35 ill-conceived stunts and pranks. Whether they’re covering themselves in a variety of bodily secretions, playing rock-paper-nuts, or racing down a mountain on top of refrigerators, gamers will spend countless hours entertaining themselves as they engage in countless hysterical situations that have been deemed too gross for the Jackass crew to try up until now.

“We've always warned our fans not to try this at home, but now with the new jackass video game, players finally get a chance to try all the dumb stuff we do at home…but only within the game of course. I mean we don't need you little jerks gettin' any funny ideas. Heh heh....Wahoo!” said Johnny Knoxville, star of MTV’s Jackass.

“We're thrilled to bring the hilarious comedy and irreverence of Jackass to the world of video games,” said Tony Calandra, VP MTV Games. “The vision and extreme nature of the show and movies are faithfully recreated in the game - from all the outlandish and bizarre stunts to the signature, in your face Jackass humor.”

Jackass the game features dynamic physics, detailed ragdoll modeling, and rich, populated levels for truly emergent gameplay – no two stunts will ever be the same. A detailed in-game injury system tracks every impact: from virtually broken femurs to cracked skulls. The more punishment that the player inflicts upon the Jackass characters, the higher the player’s score. Jackass the game also offers a variety of multiplayer features that allow players to go jackass to jackass for even more intense and competitive action.

For additional entertainment, the PSP system version contains unlockable footage from the Jackass TV series that lets players see the pros in action. A fully-realized replay engine allows players to save their very own signature Jackass moments with detailed camera controls and editing features. Players can also trade their saved replays and clips with other players via the PSP system’s wireless functionality.

To inspire gamers to create and perform the most outrageous stunts as humanly possible, Jackass the game features more than 25 songs from renowned artists including The Misfits, Circle Jerks, Skinny Puppy, The Minutemen, Chris Pontius, Nashville Pussy and more. With song titles such as Live Fast and Die Young, Corona and Swamp Boogie, the music provides the perfect atmosphere for players to perform outlandish stunts in the game and virtually indulge in Jackass behavior.
