There’s been a lot of good (and a few wild ) guesses today as to what we have been up to, and unfortunately it’s not Tikiman Saga Ultra HD (this time around) ! The good news is however that both Q-Games and ourselves are really proud to announce that this summer PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate is coming to PSN on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita!
For those of you that haven’t played any of the Shooters on PS3 or PC, Ultimate is twin stick shooter that is as much about action as it is about exploration, and puzzle solving. Players interact with environments that run an advanced fluid dynamics simulation needed to solve puzzles, overcome enemies, and progress through many unique levels. Learning how to combine water, lava, gas, magnetic oil and even stomach acid with your ships special power-ups is essential to progressing into the unpredictable depths of the planet Apoxus Prime.
For those of you that do remember the original PixelJunk Shooter games, Ultimate at it’s heart combines the campaigns of Shooter 1 and 2 into one flowing narrative. That is just the beginning, as we have done a ton of stuff to Ultimate to make it a worthy third title in the series. Richard Snowdon from our production team has given PlayStation Blog the skinny on why we hope we have made the ultimate version. So do have a look here.
IGN has the exclusive announcement so feel free to head on over and have a look!
Shooter Ultimate is having it’s first preview on March 7th at the upcoming BitSummit MMXIV in Kyoto at both Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia and Q-Games’ booths.
