PixelJunk Shooter 2 Hits PSN Today With New Online Battle Mode

PixelJunk Shooter 2: Final screens

So, the wait is over. The sequel to the technically and critically acclaimed PixelJunk Shooter will be with us later today! It continues where the original left off, leaving you trapped in the deep dark bowels of an enormous alien entity. Fight through the backwash and encounter the weird and terrible monsters that are living in the alien’s gut, force your way through putrid stomach acid and strange slippery bubbly stuff, and be totally grossed out by thousands of iddy-biddy insects that come pouring out of strange pulsating larvae when you mix water with it.

Yes, this is a game you probably want to avoid playing immediately after eating, and you might feel a little queasy the next time you are staring down Sparrow-on-a-stick (a Kyoto traditional cruisine).

But wait… PixelJunk Shooter 2 isn’t all about dieting and worm control! It has vast new worlds to explore that aren’t part of an organism’s digestive track, and new technologies too, such as the Hungry Suit and the Light Suit and a whole load more. Use the new R3 spin-attack to wipe out chains of enemies at a time and revel in the destructive mayhem you can dish out with the upgraded charged missile! But all this wanton damage is in a good cause as those survivors still need rescuing and only YOU can save them!

PixelJunk Shooter 2: Final screens

On top of all this fun, we have added a completely new online versus mode which I have gone over in a previous post, but let me tell you, it’s just oozing with “addictability”, with twenty unique wonderful weapons to earn and use in the battles I really hope everyone gives it a go. It’s not overly aggressive and is a bit of cute cat-and-mouse fun, so even those PixelJunk fans out there who have never played online before, I urge you to give it a few tries (besides, one of the trophies requires you to go up at least one league in the online mode so that should be a good enough lure).

Anyway, I shouldn’t keep you too long, you’ve got PSN wallets to fill and Shooter 2s to download! See you online! (my ID’s PixelMeister so if you encounter me in your league battling, be kind and let me destroy you!)

P.S. There is something extra special for those of you who collect all the treasures… I shan’t spoil it though, last one there’s a ninny!

Over and out! …now where did I place that damn magma ball blaster…

I loved the first despite how utterly short it was to 100%. Here’s to hoping the sequel will keep me playing for more than a few hours. I wonder if there will be any PS Plus discount.

Thanks for the pointers on the online battle mode last night at the PS blog get together, even if I did wash out of the tournament almost immediately. Really fun set of powerups and weapons; having 100 percented PJS1, looking forward to trying to do the same on this guy, if only my online combat skills improve

This looks and sounds great and very exciting; however, I’ve not played much of anything else but LBP2 since it’s release.

LBP2 has destroyed my gamer soul!

Finally! ‘Bout damn time. I’m going to buy it probably this Friday.

+ Berae on March 1st, 2011 at 8:26 am said:

Nice! love the serie. So hmmm I guess it’s a bit early to talk about PixelJunk Monsters 2 or Dungeon heh? loll just kidding

+ SpyDudeFX on March 1st, 2011 at 8:30 am said:

The game is $9.99, and there’s no demo. Last blog Q-Games indicated they focused on getting the game out and will look at a demo later. What are the Home rewards for the game and can we expect an update to the PJ Space in Home? Soundtrack release? Dynamic theme? Avatars? Thanks.

+ Moosehole on March 1st, 2011 at 8:31 am said:

Yes! Been waiting for this one ever since finishing the first. Love everything you guys at Q-Games do!

+ Zezzler on March 1st, 2011 at 8:39 am said:

Awesome stuff! I cannot wait to download it! I would really love to see another PixelJunk monsters game though. Although I do really enjoy Shooter, Monsters is just sooo much more awesome imo. Thanks for the update Dylan!


21

+ TwinDad on March 1st, 2011 at 8:52 am said:

Dylan you tell us to fill our wallets, but no mention of how much to add? I know that you typically release for $9.99, but it would have been nice to see the price mentioned.

Still, heading to Best Buy to get a card during lunch.

+ Link01 on March 1st, 2011 at 8:57 am said:

It would be nice to get a price, especially if there’s a plus discount ;D

+ Justp94 on March 1st, 2011 at 9:13 am said:

I will only spend $9.99 on Downloadable PSN games… so this better be $9.99…
If it is $14.99 I’ll pass.

i’m going to buy it today also :D great game, i got the first one in a PS3 bundle with uncharted 2 and pixel junk shooter and it’s the best mini game I’ve played. But what’s the surprise if we get all the treasures ??


34

+ Dragun619 on March 1st, 2011 at 9:54 am said:

Awesome, enjoyed the first and I’ll probably enjoy the second one. Thanks Q-games for the awesomeness of the PixelJunk series. Any update on PixelJunk Lifelike? Maybe at GDC?

+ kassatsu on March 1st, 2011 at 9:54 am said:

Dylan is not lying. Make sure to collect all the gems, the unlock really is something to behold.


36

+ Fudwumper on March 1st, 2011 at 10:22 am said:

Is it true that even if you bought a game as a PS+ member and got a discount, and you end up deciding not to keep the PS+ membership. That you will NOT be able to play that game?? I know I read somewhere that if you get a PS+ FREE game and don’t pay your fee that you can’t play it anymore. Just wondered if it was for anything you purchased (even at discount). If so, I would rather just pay full price for a game, then to be stuck in a membership fee.

+ Ndavid007 on March 1st, 2011 at 10:31 am said:

Thank you Sony for bringing this sequel out as soon as possible, first one was amazing, keep up the good work!


38

+ BigWoopMagazine on March 1st, 2011 at 10:44 am said:

@Kassatsu – Indeed it is worth finding all those gems! Hit me up if you still want to duke it out online.

@Q-games – Loving it, can’t wait to see what’s next!

@Fudwumper – If you paid for a game on sale through PS+ it is yours to keep forever. If you got the game for free, it is yours as long as the subscription is active (even if you deactivate, and then reactivate). So basically, if you paid money for it, it’s yours.

+ Akimitsu782 on March 1st, 2011 at 10:54 am said:

Amazon has it on their PSN page listed for $9.99 (though it’s not available to download), so that would appear to be the price!

+ OldKai on March 1st, 2011 at 10:58 am said:

IGN Review says $9.99, think that’s more then enough confirmation.
