PixelJunk Shooter Sequel Emerges from the Depths

May 16, 2010Written by Jonathan Leack

Q-Games’ exclusive PlayStation Network title PixelJunk Shooter is perhaps one of the best downloadable titles so far this generation. With its artistic visuals, entertaining puzzel sequences and a variety of enjoyable game mechanics, it quickly captured the hearts of many when it debuted in December of last year. It did so well, in fact, that a sequel is currently in development.

According to an editor for PlayStation: The Official Magazine, Gary Steinman, the July 2010 issue of his magazine reveals an official announcement for the sequel to PixelJunk Shooter. Gary posted the following Tweet on his Twitter account:

Speaking of our July issue ( http://tweetphoto.com/22010605 ), in our PixelJunk lovefest feature, we exclusively reveal…PJ Shooter 2!

Looks like Sony will have yet another exclusive title to show at E3 2010 next month. Along with an armada of other anticipated PSN titles including Dead Nation and an enhanced PlayStation 3 version of Castle Crashers, it’s looking like a great year for the PlayStation Store. Look out for more details about PixelJunk Shooter 2 in the July issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine.
