has announced today alongside a video that PixelJunk Sidescroller is coming to PSN on October 25th with details below.
To quote: PixelJunk SideScroller is not far from your hands! Yes, it has kind of crept up upon us, but the release date is 1st of November October 25th in North America.
I really can't emphasize enough how really, really good, old-school fun SideScroller has turned out to be. I'm sure some of you have played the "bonus" stage in PixelJunk Shooter 2 called "The Road to Dawn", well that is what gave us the urge to make an entire side scrolling shoot-em-up game!
Back in the day I used to love games such as R-Type
, and going even further back there were games such as Scramble and Defender that inspired me as a child.
So... we decided to dip our toes in and see what PixelJunk could bring to the side-scroller world.
We used the same engine as for the two Shooter titles, but the game itself is entirely different. To begin with this is a single-stick controlled game rather than the dual-stick control we had in Shooter, which makes it even more addictive and easy...
