Ratings board hands out an E-for-Everyone for unannounced sequel to Q Games' original downloadable racer for the PS3.
With four distinct downloadable PixelJunk games under its belt, PlayStation 3 developer Q Games has already shown an inclination toward iteration. The studio has already released Encore editions of its PixelJunk Monsters and PixelJunk Eden games, with the former also being brought to the PSP in Deluxe form.
Now, Q Games looks ready to take a second look at its very first PixelJunk effort, as the Entertainment Software Rating Board has added a listing for PixelJunk Racers: 2nd Lap to its online database. Like the first, the game will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment America and released on the PS3. The ESRB has given the game an E-for-Everyone rating with a "mild cartoon violence" descriptor.
Unlike most new games added to the database, 2nd Lap doesn't have a detailed rating description attached. As such, information that could indicate whether this is another Encore-style tweak, a full-fledged sequel, or a spin-off are unknown. As of press time, a Sony representative had not responded to GameSpot's request for clarification.
The least liked of the 4 games Pixeljunk released. No thanks, give me more Shooter and Monsters please ... better yet a new IP!
I hope it's an Encore pack, I've been wanting an excuse to play through it again, especially if trophies are tossed into the mix.
@tester420 how is shooter? i've been so busy w/other games i haven't checked it out. i love monsters but eden got kind of old quickly so i skipped shooter.
I am wondering if this will be an add-on, or the first part of their second series of games. All I really care about right now is the encore edition of Shooter.
this game was fun. i'd definitely check it out...but the best pixeljunk game in my opinion was pixeljunk monsters...that's what they need to make a sequel of. or at least a 3rd island DLC until they make the sequel.
No one cares if ur first. Btw, do you think the sequel will change or just keep the core gameplay? Cos the first game is already fun as it is.
