A video interview is below, and to quote: We know you've been patiently waiting for your chance to finally go hands-on with the fourth game in the PixelJunk series. So let me lead off by formally announcing: PixelJunk Shooter will become available on the PlayStation Store next Thursday, December 10th.

We've been holding on to this video interview with SCEE's Jem Alexander and I until we were ready to announce PixelJunk Shooter's release date. With that out of the way, hit "play" below:





I was a bit tired during that interview, which is my excuse for the over-use of the adjective "cool" (the game *is* cool though! *Very* cool cool indeed)! Here's the story behind that:

The time was 12am midnight and it was a warm early Autumn night and my heavily loaded car was waiting for me to drive it from Kyoto to Tokyo (estimated 8 hour drive).  This was the start of our journey to the Tokyo...

233w ago - PixelJunk Shooters is one of the most anticipated remaining PlayStation 3 games waiting to be released before the end of the year.

Dylan Cuthbert, the President and Managing Director of Q-Games, posted the following comments on his personal Twitter page, to quote:

"all I can say is we're aiming for Dec. 24th in Japan"

246w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared a video walkthrough today on PixelJunk Shooter's Ice Stage for PS3, as follows:

Hopefully those of you who made the trek out to Comic-Con stopped by the PlayStation booth because there was some brand new PixelJunk Shooter to get your hands on. But for the majority of you that didn't, SCEA Santa Monica's Matt Morton has you covered.

Here, he walks us through some brand new areas of the ice stage, explaining a host of things you probably haven't seen, including the lava cannon and more.

I am thoroughly impressed and excited by this game each and every time I see it, so definitely watch this vid from beginning to end.




 

PixelJunk Shooter PS3 Details & E3 2009 Trailer Video Available

254w ago - Q-Games Ltd. President and Executive Producer Dylan Cuthbert has unveiled some new PixelJunk Shooter PS3 details and an E3 2009 trailer video today, as follows:

In true PixelJunk fashion we have made the game co-op, so get a friend around, grab an extra controller and anyone can just dive right on in.

We've tried to make co-op as de-stressed as possible, so even if your player's ship gets hit by something or overheats and starts crashing towards the ground, you can pop out your extendible hook thing (no official name for this yet - "Grabber" perhaps?) and grab your friend (he's a bit heavy tho, so watch out), then you can carry him to the nearest pool of water and dunk him in to restore his health. If you don't manage to grab him in time, he'll just re-spawn near you and you'll be docked a life.





The game is an old-school shooter at heart (hence the name), it is the PixelJunk take on those old retro shooting games such as Defender, with a little bit of Choplifter and Thrust! thrown in for good measure. We have giant bosses for you to fight against, multiple weapons to pick up and try out, shields you can grab, all kinds of stuff to give people with an itchy trigger finger a lot of fun.

However, at the same time...
