The Messenger could get more DLC

Last month, Sabotage revealed Picnic Panic as free DLC for The Messenger. That might not be all for the game though, as two more packs could be possible.

As part of a Q&A with fans, director Thierry Boulanger described Picnic Panic as “an experiment.” While the team prepares for potentially “bigger things for the future,” it also wanted to “support and add more content to The Messenger.”

What up, kids and squids?!

This week on NEP, Oni and Galen discuss Nintendo’s 2018 efforts—the good AND the bad: all the games, free DLC, ports from Wii U, Nintendo Switch Online and more.
The gang also reminisces on some of their favorite games they’ve played this year, and end the show by explaining what kind of sandwich best represents NEP! Per usual, Galen is optimistic and Oni is pessimistic.

The Messenger is receiving a new Picnic Panic expansion, Devolver Digital and Sabotage announced during the Kinda Funny Games Showcase. The DLC will arrive next year – and it’ll be entirely free.

Here’s a brief overview, along with a trailer:

Devolver Digital and Sabotage Studio have confirmed the release of the Messenger+ update for The Messenger. The patch adds a New Game+ mode, a Jukebox, and various quality of life improvements, including the ability to remap controls, a visual cue in the underwater labyrinth for accessibility purposes, and the Prophet’s hint feature directly into the map to help guide adventurers.

Here’s a rundown of New Game+ mode:

Special Reserve Games has revealed an extended partnership with Devolver Digital that will result in three new physical releases. Downwell, The Messenger, and Minit will all be sold physically. Thus far, the latter two have only been available as digital downloads, with the same having been previously announced for Downwell.

No word yet on when the physical versions are launching, but we’ll keep you updated. They’ll be ready to go sometime in 2019.

Assuming everything goes as planned, The Messenger will be getting a major update next week. Sabotage is adding New Game+, the ability to remap controls, a jukebox, and more.

A video posted today showcases the update in action. We’ve included it below.

Since the invention of Twitter, important scrolls have become a thing of the past. However, The Messenger tasks you with taking a scroll of upmost importance, from west to east; or for those unfamiliar with side scrollers, that means from left to right. Action and platforming in 8bit style graphics may be where your adventure starts but like a ninja in the shadows, there’s more to this game than meets the eye.

The Messenger launch trailer

To celebrate today’s release, a new launch trailer has gone live for The Messenger. Have a look at the video below.

The Messenger has taken some clear inspiration from Ninja Gaiden. It only makes sense then to have some of the game’s creators try out Sabotage and Devolver Digital’s new title.

That’s exactly what you can see in the video below. Ninja Gaiden director / producer Hideo Yoshizawa, along with composer Keiji Yamagishi, play The Messenger while sharing their thoughts and commenting on a few other subjects.

Various outlets are starting to get their hands on the final version of The Messenger, which launches at the end of this month. Watch over an hour of footage below.
