PixelJunk Shooter and PixelJunk Shooter 2 are coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita this summer as PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, developer Double Eleven announced. And it combines the campaigns of both games into a single experience.
“PixelJunk Shooter introduced us to the Yellow Dart, and its mission to save trapped scientists,” Double Eleven’s Richard Snowdon said on the PlayStation Blog. “PixelJunk Shooter 2 picks up exactly where the first left off. In PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate, you can enjoy an uninterrupted and complete experience, with all the new features introduced in Shooter 2 — such as the super spin — across all chapters.”
On PlayStation 4, the game runs at 60 frames per second and has been given a “full visual upgrade.” Ultimate introduces real-time environment lighting, a “host” of new visual FX for effects such as explosions and projectiles, better looking fluids (anti-aliasing included), improved shaders, and a revisited color palette.
The ship has also been redesigned. It is now 3D, which allowed the team to add animations for aeronautical maneuvering with visual feedback.
Other new additions included a new heads-up display, cross-play across both versions, cross-save, and a new scoring system.
