TAKE THAT: The fearless leader takes out an enemy tank.

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un will soon become the star of his own video game.

Independent video game studio Moneyhorse has unveiled a retro-style game called Glorious Leader, which depicts "an epic tale about the triumph of Kim Jong Un over the entire American army."

The game features seven levels of side-scrolling combat, similar to classic run-and-gun games such as Contra and Rush'n Attack.

Jeff Miller, chief executive of Moneyhorse Games, told the Guardian his motivation in developing the game was to find a new way to tell the country’s story and to get people across the world talking about the secretive nation.

Moneyhorse said the game would launch on PCs and mobile devices soon.
