E3 is a time for new game announcements and debuting sequels--whether gamers want them or not. Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is a follow-up to the critically panned Naughty Bear. Unlike its predecessor, the follow-up will come to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
As the name implies, this title takes place on the exotic Paradise Island, where Naughty Bear sets out to brutalize bears that have wronged him yet again. The announcement promises a new combat system, the ability to level up, equipment customization, and 30 missions set across 11 areas.
"Following the success of our first outing with Naughty Bear, we really wanted to push the limits and give players a lot more freedom to be as naughty as they can and help Naughty Bear get revenge on the other bears who have been so mean to him," said 505 Games' Victoria Reeve, Senior Global Brand Manager, 505 Games. "With the first Naughty Bear game audiences responded well to the juxtaposition of cuddly innocence, with dark humor and over the top violence. We're really looking forward to seeing what they make of all the great new features we’ve packed into Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise."
