Today, on the final day of GDC, Q-Games and Spike Chunshoft announced PixelJunk Monster 2 for PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. This newest tower defense entry in the long-running PixelJunk series is poised to release digitally on May 25, and will only cost $14.99.
This game is a sequel to one of the earlier PixelJunk games that released on PS3 in Japan all the way back in December of 2007. This sequel improves monumentally on the original tower defense experience by implementing beautiful looking 3D graphics and multiplayer, both local and online, for up to four people.
In PixelJunk Monsters 2, players control Tikiman, who is attempting to defend his Hut for hordes of monsters. In order to do so, players will have to build a variety of different wacky towers in order to protect what is theirs. Tikiman is very customizable, and players can toggle between a top-down or close-up POV whenever the wish in-game.
You can check out some screenshots showcasing the game’s gorgeous looking art style below alongside its first trailer. PixelJunk Monsters 2 will release on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch on May 25.
