Hotline Miami


Danganronpa maker Spike Chunsoft is publishing Hotline Miami: Collected Edition, a localized bundle of the original gorefest and its thumping sequel Wrong Number, in Japan this year. Ahead of its June 25 release for PS4 and PS Vita, here's the bundle's slick promo art and logo. You've earned a new fan today, @b0neface. [Via Shane Bettenhausen]


Rejoice Hotline Miami fans who still like physical boxed releases, there's a Hotline Miami and Hotline Miami 2 physical collectors edition in the works. The $60 (£40) box set, due to ship out in August 2015, comes with ...


With Hotline Miami 2 recently released, I realized I am really, really tired of games that belong in its genre. When I say "genre," I refer not to "action games" or "indie games" or even "violent games," but a subtler, more h...


If there's one thing we can all agree upon re: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, it's that Dennaton Games did an exceptional job matching songs with the tone and feel of specific levels. This series wouldn't be what it is -- a ...




After completing Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the credits roll and a suspicious title screen appears. Funnily enough I raced to click "New Game" and it ended up being part of the ending, promptly rewinding back to the Hotline 2 main menu after a few seconds. Spoilers below and in the gallery as to what the Easter egg is.


You might not know this, but murderers love cross-brand synergy. That's why hot on the heels of some John Wick co-marketing, Payday 2 is getting a rash of neon-soaked DLC to celebrate the release of Hotline Miami 2. Remorsel...


No maybe about it: Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will release on March 10, just as the cryptic phone message seemed to indicate. The ferocious overhead action game is headed to Steam and GOG.com (Windows, Mac, Linux), and Pla...

The Hotline Miami Twitter account just posted this phone number: +1 (786) 519-3708 ext 10. I called it, like you do, and got a weird message, as expected. "We are 50 Blessings. Together we march ... into the future." Before I...


Bundle deals are all the rage these days. Although there's a ton of derivatives of the original Humble Bundle, GOG.com outshines the competitors and delivers with its Devolver Game & Watch Bundle. It's great to get such a...


Devolver Digital and Dennaton Games' forthcoming title Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number made headlines yesterday after the Australian Classification Board made the decision to refuse the game classification, effectivel...


Hotline Miami 2 has been refused classification in Australia, primarily due to a rape scene. Before we dig into the meat of the news, be warned this article contains a pretty graphic description of rape. With that out the way...


The music and gameplay of Hotline Miami are so intertwined in my mind that I'm hesitant to listen to tracks off the sequel's soundtrack beforehand. Oh, what the hell? One can't hurt! This song, "The Way Home, comes from Magi...


Ugh. Mondays, am I right? They're a day that people don't like because you have to do stuff and things after (maybe) not having to do those things, you know? Lame. Let's turn our frowns upside down and instead talk about some...


iam8bit has opened pre-orders for the Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Collector's Edition Vinyl ahead of its first quarter 2015 ship date. (Is that when the game is releasing? Hope so!) At $60, the three-record set features 28 ...

Hearing that Dennaton Games is taking more time to polish up Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number -- it's now looking like late 2014 or early 2015 -- sits well with me. Totally okay with waiting. I know that should be the default r...

Overkill Software and Dennaton Games are teaming up for Payday 2 DLC based on Hotline Miami. It's unclear what all is included here beyond a heist -- they can get away with offering the slimmest of details and we'll still be ...

Max and I are coolin' out on the couch, talkin' about dumb old videogames. Samus gets a skimpy outfit in Smash Bros. Pokemon gets some teases, but Youkai Watch 2 looks cooler right now. And Hotline Miami might be getting a badass 1/6th scale figure.


Hotline Miami developer Dennaton, along with Devolver Digital and esctoy.com have teamed up to create the Hotline Miami figure you've dreamed of. It's a 1/6 scale, 12-inch figure based on Jacket, featuring removable clothing,...


I know one of the ways I'm going to fill the gap between now and the release of Hotline Miami 2 later this year is.... by playing more Hotline Miami. Especially now as Devolver Digital is releasing the original Hotline Miami...


It's true. Devolver Digital does have the best E3 presence in that its booth isn't actually a booth -- it's trailers and a barbeque in a parking lot outside of the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles convention center. For ...


Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will have a level editor on the PC! Fans can create their own demented levels, decorate it however they want to. And yes, you'll be able to share these custom created levels with other players. ...

Anyone that has even the slightest bit of familiarity with Hotline Miami knows what defines it. The neon-swathed visuals, the gratuitous violence, the quick and unforgiving gameplay, and the blaring soundtrack all made the ga...


This has been a hell of a week, hasn't it? The Destructoid Humble Bundle is going strong, but it's time is almost up. So how are we going to celebrate? I'm going to play my favorite game in the bundle.  If you've never w...


I went from sipping tea from a corgi mug to wanting to hurt people this morning in about 30 seconds flat after watching this badass, brand new Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number trailer. I was like yeah. Hell yeah. Headbangi...


At GDC this week, I sat down with Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowrie, and we discussed what they're up to in 2014, between Hotline Miami, Luftrausers, and Bro Force, they're keeping busy. We also got the world exclusive that the original Hotline Miami is coming to the PlayStation 4 with cross-buy support.

While it's certainly been the subject of many a sale opportunity by this point, I would feel remiss in failing to take advantage of any opportunity to encourage people to play Hotline Miami. So, in that spirit, I come to info...


So, last week I may have dropped the ball a little bit. Turns out I got slightly ahead of myself and thought I had completed the challenge when I was only halfway through. Whoops! So this week I'm here to finish what I start...


This week's challenge centers on Hotline Miami, in which I have to beat chapter 5 without using any weapons. Even when fully armed, death is mere moments away in Hotline Miami. Thankfully you don't have to wait long to retry! If you've got any ideas for future challenges you'd like me to have a go at, feel free to leave them in the comments!


Once the weekly PlayStation Store update goes live tomorrow, Hotline Miami will be available for free with your PlayStation Plus membership. The offer covers both the PS Vita and PS3 versions of this murderous action title wh...


Last week, we asked you to pick your favorite game of PAX Prime 2013. Today, the results are in! I wish I could say it was a close call, but the rest of the games on the show floor apparently decided to phone it in compared to...


Hamza and Spencer took some time at PAX Prime 2013 to check out Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number and found it to be more of the crazed action which so captured our imaginations last year. Watch the video for their full report.


Between appointments I popped in to play Hotline Miami 2 again. And it's still awesome. After finishing (losing) I turned around to find a list of forbidden interview questions written on the wall behind me. The banned questi...
