TVL reader Magnumstache asked Lee Hutchinson from Double Eleven about the likelihood of seeing PixelJunk SideScroller on the Vita and got this pleasant reply.

Everything is on the table, its just about time/staffing/money. We ideally want to do the entire PJ set.

PixelJunk Shooter Ultimate launched this month (and is available on PS+ for the whole of June) and PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate HD released last year and both are incredibly fun, so it would be nice to see this see the light of day. We would certainly buy it in a heartbeat. Would you buy it?

    What exactly is the difference between PixelJunkShooterUltimate and this game?

    • Magnumstache

      Ultimate has more of a puzzle/exploration aspect and is more languid.

      Sidescroller is a fast-paced, side scrolling shooter in the mould of Gradius, R-Type etc. I was playing it on PS3 the other day and thought “this would be great on Vita”, hadn’t heard of it before then!

        Cool thanks!

  • Lester Paredes

    I probably would. I haven’t played any of the Pixel Junk games except for the two on vita.

  • Anthony Brinklow

    I hope this comes, day one for me.

    Would definitely buy. Although I gotta say the input lag and/or framerate issues do get in the way of my enjoyment of Shooter on Vita. Monsters, on the other hand, was pretty damn flawless.

    Sweet! Would qualify as a must buy for me. Currently enjoying PJSU. Very clever game that one!
