The folks at Q-Games are moving forward with their plan for genre domination. No, seriously. Their PixelJunk franchise has taken a trip through several different incarnations, always re-creating itself in an interesting new genre. Those prior releases (Racer, Monsters, Shooter and Eden) were quite well-received, so it’s no surprise that the studio has decided to tackle the side-scrolling shooter sub-genre with its next series outing: PixelJunk SideScroller.
It’s been confirmed that the sideways-maneuvering title will see a North American PlayStation Network release next week, on October 25, 2011. Fans of the series, quality gaming creations and retro gaming concepts, should certainly mark their calendars in big red ink.
