Get All Nostalgic With PixelJunk SideScroller Next Week

If you're a fan of the great PixelJunk series, you'll be excited to learn about the latest title from Q Games.

All you have to do is check the developer's Twitter account to learn the good news:

"PixelJunk SideScroller comes out next week. For anyone in the US, Oct. 25th is SideScroller day!"

Yep, on October 25, we'll get some old-school side-scrollin' goodness, and we're sure it'll exist in the same smooth, attractive landscape in which all these titles exist. Boasting lasers, homing missiles, and a bevy of other weapons, players will progress through colorful levels, avoiding incoming fire by executing a cool spin move. Other features include a health bar system, so this has all the hallmarks of a great old-fashioned experience with a modern-day twist.

PixelJunk SideScroller will also support local co-op action for a couple players at once. Battlefield 3 comes out on the same day, so wouldn't it be interesting to compare the mechanics of yesteryear to what shooters have become today?

Wow, more crickets!

OK, don't hate just because I haven't played anything PixelJunk, but hasn't most of their games been sort of side scrolly(yes, I just made the word up) too?????

BTW, I do own PJ's Monsters Deluxe for my PSP, but with my huge ever-growing backlog, I still haven't gotten the chance to even sample it yet.

I have yet to finish PixelJunk Shooter and still have to play PJS2 (which I bought on release day) so I'll probably wait a few more weeks for SideScroller. It does look like it might be their best game yet.
