You can now get your PixelJunk fix right on your PlayStation 4, PC, or Nintendo Switch. PixelJunk Monsters 2 is out, and it’s bringing four-player co-op and explosive fruit bombs.

While the PixelJunk series has run the gamut of genres, from platformers to racing games, the PixelJunk Monsters series is all about tower defense. In this follow-up to the original, players control Tikiman, building towers to protect their Tiki Huts from fiendish monsters.

PixelJunk Monsters 2’s key features are as follows:

  • Local & Online Play — Maximize the fun by playing couch co-op with your friends or with up to 4 players online!
  • Close Encounters — Multiply the suspense by toggling the camera from top-down to an in-your-face view!
  • Fluid & Detailed Graphics — Immerse yourself in an all new world like never before as the HD animation breathes life into the unique maps, and even Tikiman himself!
  • The Mask Makes the Tikiman — A mask for any occasion! Customize Tikiman with different mask and shell styles.


Additionally, there are several DLC packs available for purchase with the game. The Golden Outfits Pack, which lets you dress Tikiman in golden apparel, is free until June 8 in North America and June 11 in Europe. The Encore Pack gives you access to the new stage Encore Peak. And the aptly-named Danganronpa Pack adds the Hope’s Peak Academy stage.

You can find more information from the game’s Steam page.

The only thing Natalie likes to do more than play games is talk about them. On the weekends Natalie can be found moonlighting as an elf rogue, a thespian, or a Pokemon Gym Leader depending on the time of year. You can find them on Twitter (@snatent).
