What does 2009 have in store for the PlayStation Network? At the very least, two more PixelJunk games. At most? Maybe three! Q-Games founder Dylan Cuthbert briefly outlined his company's 2009 plans for the series.
He writes on the official U.S. PlayStation blog that "two or three more PixelJunk titles [will be]coming out" in the new year.
We already know that the tower defence game PixelJunk Monsters is getting a PSP port sometime this year (if that counts) and we know that Q-Games has a PixelJunk Dungeons in the works, so what else?
In addition to outing Dungeons at the Game Developers Conference last year, Cuthbert says the Kyoto-based Q-Games has designs on moving the PixelJunk series into 3D.
He assured the 2D-dedicated crowd that might have been unsettled by that news that the second series, while cracking into the third dimension, would follow the gameplay conventions established by the first for the PlayStation 3 and that it would all run in glorious 60 frames per second and at 1080p resolution.
I seem to recall that Q had plans for up to six 2D PixelJunk games, but who knows whether those plans have changed. Only Q-Games knows!
Happy New Year from Q-Games in Kyoto! [PlayStation.blog]
