Hotline Miami’s PlayStation Bloodbath Begins Tomorrow, Sequel Due Out Later This Year

Hotline_Miami_PlayStation

Hotline Miami, the neon-violent action game first released last year on PC by Dennaton and Devolver Digital, is officially a go for PS3 and Vita cross-buy launch starting tomorrow, Tuesday, June 25. $9.99 will get you both PlayStation versions, including cross-save support and the new and exclusive Russell the raging bull mask which flips on a black and white (and red) filter for a classic film noir look.

With work now a wrap on the original game’s PlayStation release, Dennaton and Devolver are dialing up a true Hotline Miami sequel, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number. Per Devolver Digital press release:

You’re a murderer. You murder people. Again. And again. How certain you are of your actions and what is, and what is not, real is what you must determine in Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, due out later this year from developer Dennaton Games and publisher Devolver Digital. The epic finale to 2012’s blood-soaked hit follows an escalating level of violence through multiple factions born from the events of the original game — all within the confines of blistering combat, the unmistakable visual style, and another powerful and intense soundtrack that pushes you to the limit and forces you to question your own thirst for blood.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number commands you to step into the murderous minds of several distinct characters – each with their own motivations and methods of execution – as storylines intersect and reality slips away into a haze of neon and carnage. Witness hundreds of new sprites and animations in lush new areas to clear floor-by-floor, and harness a variety of savage new weapons to satisfy your murder lust.

Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is currently in development for PC, Mac, and Linux to be released by end of 2013. Hopefully tomorrow’s PSN release of the original game does well enough to encourage Dennaton and Devolver to bring the sequel to PlayStation platforms as well. Maybe even triple cross-buy with PS4!
