PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate Heading To PlayStation 4 And Vita

Both PixelJunk Shooter games are getting upgraded and ported to PlayStation 4 and Vita this summer.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate combines the campaigns from PixelJunk Shooter and its sequel into one long campaign, which actually makes perfect sense if you've played both games. The first campaign immediately leads into the second. Along with the campaign change, the game's visuals have also received an overhaul, and the ships have been redesigned. The two versions of the game will also offer Cross Play and Cross Save functionality.

You can check out a few screens form the game to sample the new art style in the gallery below. PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate arrives on PlayStation 4 and Vita this summer.

PixelJunk Shooter Coming To PC, Mac, And Linux Next Month

Double Eleven Studios, the team behind the Vita port of PixelJunk Monsters, is bringing another PixelJunk title, Shooter, to PC, Mac, and Linux next month.

The game will be available through Steam on on November 11 for $ 8.99. Unlike Double Eleven's previous port, PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD, which added a few new features, it sounds like this port of Shooter will just be a straight recreation of the original PlayStation 3 title. You can head here to read our review of PixelJunk Shooter.

Our Take
Personally, Shooter has been my favorite of the PixelJunk series. I'm happy to see it coming to a new platform, but I am surprised Double Eleven is bringing to PC, Mac, and Linux and not Vita. Maybe that is also in the works and Double Eleven is just not ready to announce.

The PC version of PixelJunk Shooter will launch at $ 8.99.

PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD this summer on Vita

PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate Vita

Q-Games’ excellent tower defense game PixelJunk Monsters is marching its way to Vita. The PlayStation Blog mentions that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD will include the original game, plus Encore expansion, along with extra towers, enemies and levels from the PSP’s Deluxe edition. The game is being ported by Double Eleven, which previously handled ports for LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.

“Monsters Ultimate HD has more than 30 hours of gameplay set across story and challenge levels. All of the graphics have been remastered for the PS Vita’s high-resolution screen, and we added touchscreen input to provide more control of Tikiman,” wrote Double Eleven COO Mark South on the PS Blog.

Eurogamer mentions the game will launch in “late summer,” with PC and Mac versions requiring your protection from the swarms soon after.
