Ms. Splosion Man, the upcoming XBLA game from Twisted Pixel and the sequel to 2009’s smash hit Splosion Man, will be hitting the XBLA on July 13th. Featuring 50 all new single player levels and a 50 level multiplayer campaign, Ms. Splosion Man is set to be one of the hottest arcade games of the summer.
I was a huge fan of Splosion Man. It was addictive, challenging, unique and had a great sense of humor. Recently, I had a chance to play the Ms. Splosion Man beta and absolutely loved it. It feels pretty similar to its predecessor but includes a healthy amount of new elements that enable it to stand out as a true sequel.
Once again it’s full of humor, it has that same “can’t put down the controller” gameplay and Twisted Pixel‘s usual charm that is found in all their games once again returns with Ms. Splosion Man. If the beta was any indication of the final product, this is going to be a must have XBLA title.
I know I’ll be picking this one up on day one, will you?[toggle_box title=”Click here to read the full press release” width=”Width of toggle box”]
June 22nd, 2011 – Austin, TX – Embattled socialite Ms. Splosion Man has been roundly condemned by authorities for her destruction of property and abundant manslaughter charges, but nevertheless remains hugely popular in the hearts of the people. They call her a free-spirit and the meat-bringer but Big Science insists she is a dangerous element getting special treatment only because of her abundant celebrity. Everything will come to a head on July 13th, when the highly anticipated followup from 2009’s Summer of Arcade hit title Splosion Man splodes her way onto the Xbox LIVE® Arcade marketplace.
