Prepare yourself for a tropical ninja getaway with The Messenger: Picnic Panic's launch trailer


Available today

The new free DLC for The Messenger called "Picnic Panic" is now available on all platforms. To get yourself in the mood for a tropical ninja getaway, publisher Devolver Digital has uploaded a launch trailer that shows off some of the locales you'll be traveling to. In addition to being very colorful, there's more of that wonderful music by Rainbowdragoneyes. This crept up on me by surprise, so now I'm all ready to jump back into the game.

As for what you'll find in this DLC, "Picnic Panic" sends the titular main character on a summer vacation to Voodkin Island. The demon Barma'thazel has captured some of the island's creatures and intends to use them in his dark rituals. As only the wisecracking messenger can, he'll travel through the past and present of three new levels and face off against a plethora of new enemies and bosses. Better still, the shopkeeper has more stories to tell that are likely loaded with snark. I can't wait for that.
