Q-Games and Spike Chunsoft just published a new trailer for the upcoming PixelJunk Monsters 2 DLC. Unfortunately there’s no concrete release date for it, but the trailer shows off some of the new stages and costumes, and lots of Monokuma:

PixelJunk Monsters 2 developer Q-Games has shown off what’s to come for PixelJunk Monsters 2. A video highlighting an upcoming update can be found below.

In single-player, a zoomed out feature is coming to single-player mode so that you’ll be able to see more of the map. And for local co-op multiplayer, the map will zoom out automatically as the players move farther away from each other.

Steam will be getting the PixelJunk Monsters 2 update first, followed by consoles.

Thanks to m_t for the tip.


PixelJunk Monsters 2 was previously announced for a May 25 release on Switch. That’s still the case in North America, but it’s been hit with a slight delay in Europe. PAL regions will gain access on May 30.
