PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate updates both games for PS4, PS Vita

Mar 05 // Jordan Devore    @DtoidJordan

Yeah, okay!

Double Eleven will continue working on Q-Games' PixelJunk franchise with PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, announced today for PS Vita and PlayStation 4. If everything goes according to plan, the revamped game -- which is really two games, combined to form a single comprehensive title -- should be an obvious purchase this summer for new players. The original releases were great.

But what about folks who have played through Shooter and its sequel? Besides the obvious new artwork, there's Cross-Play and Cross-Save support, a more "balanced" scoring system, a revised heads-up display, 60 frames per second on PlayStation 4, and a new, 3D look for the ship.

Still PixelJunk Shooter 1 and 2, in other words, but more work was put into updating these games than one might expect. To me, the most interesting bit here is that it's seamless: "In PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, you can enjoy an uninterrupted and complete experience, with all the new features introduced in Shooter 2 -- such as the super spin -- across all chapters."
