Sony has revealed the first details on the forthcoming expansion, PixelJunk Monsters Encore, and as far as I’m concerned, it might as well be an entirely new game.
The expansion adds one new island to the game, Toki Island, which will offer up 15 new levels, and five new musical tracks by Kyoto-based musician, Otograph. Additionally, a few tweaks have been made that will only make sense to those who have played the original; the Ice Tower is now a stock item, and the cost of the Tesla Tower has been reduced.
The expansion is set for a May release, but no pricing has been announced. Deb Mars has nice interview with Q Games’ Dylan Cuthbert which you can read on the PlayStation Blog, which I have to say is better than the interview I conducted a few months ago. She a Senior Producer at SCEA, and I’m just the dude who plays PixelJunk Monsters in his underwear. What do you want from me?
I’ve been pretty much head over heels for PixelJunk Monsters since its release earlier this year, but I have to admit it’s been awhile since I’ve played. I’m thinking Encore is going to reinvigorate my interest. Who’s with me?
