Space Invaders Extreme 2 screens, PAL release date

9:40 AM on 09.10.2009 // Topher Cantler

Taito and Square-Enix have just announced that Space Invaders Extreme 2, the sequel to what was easily one of my favorite DS games of last year, will be arriving in PAL region territories on October 2nd. The game is slated for release in the US on September 23rd.

This new version boasts some cool new features like an enhanced Battle Play mode, a new "Bingo" round-clearing system, and a new score attack mode that acts as a beginner's course, with an infinite player stock. Even if you're quite skilled at games like this, that sounds like a nice opportunity to kick back and blast away at things if you ask me. Sometimes you just want to shoot stuff.

Thankfully, the game retains all of the qualities that made the first one great, like its download play function, varied stages and great soundtrack. Check out the gallery below for some screenshots and hit the jump for the full details.

Oh neat, Hollow Knight got through the Colosseum of Fools stretch goal while no one was looking. Shame they couldn't get to three characters but the game still looks awesome.

My MGSV: The Phantom Pain playthrough has quickly devolved into a journey to fill out Big Boss' 80's synth pop collection. And I couldn't be happier.

You know what I love? Game tgat force you to connect to their servers even though you only want to play single player. Then the servers are down an the game tries for like 5 minutes, not even giving you a way to cancel the process, you just have to wait

In today's Spelunky daily challenge, I was nibbled by a bat that pushed me into a Tiki trap that landed me dead on Kali's alter. Kali was pleased with the bat's sacrifice.
