Hotline Miami 2 trailer shows off points & blood

Hotline Miami 2 trailer shows off points & blood

Dennaton Games has dropped a new trailer for their bloody murder simulator, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, just in time for PAX East. Coming this fall to PC, PS4, and Vita, the new trailer shows off the numerous ways you can murder--and collect points, of course.

At one point, it may appear that the trailer is hinting at co-op. However, the official Hotline Miami Twitter clarifies that "the swans are brother/sister and are controlled together." It's sort of like Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons--but with a lot more murder.

You squeeze your hands tight and grit your teeth. You're holding it in for now, but how much longer? How soon before you snap and the next punk you see takes a crowbar to the teeth? Hang in there, friend. You've only got between five and eight months to wait until you can let that tension out in a safe way, as Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is coming in the third quarter of this year.

Hotline Miami 2's first gameplay video

Hotline Miami 2's first gameplay video

It's Sunday, which makes it a perfect time to watch some footage of mass murder. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number made its debut at Rezzed 2013, and VG247 was there, camera in hand. This gameplay video shows the same ultra-violence that made the first game so appealing, with the same head-thumping music we've come to love.

Enjoy.

Hotline Miami hammers PS3 & Vita next week

Hotline Miami hammers PS3 & Vita next week

"The thing is," I waffle on at the party, a pint mug of gin in one hand, "Hotline Miami criticises grotesque video game violence whilst forcing us to accept we do actually revel in it." Your eyes dart to the door but I've cornered you by the fridge. "That's very interesting," you say, "but I only have a PlayStation." Ha! You are caught. The PS3 and Vita editions will launch next week, priced at a very reasonable $9.99.

Hotline Miami 2 preview: curtain call

All good things must come to an end. That's the essence of the story behind Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, the follow-up to their acclaimed original from Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital. It contains the same 2D top-down action of the first game, but the story treads into darker territory and brings with it a sense of closure, as seen in a private demo at E3.

Hotline Miami 2 to close series in early '90s

Hotline Miami 2 to close series in early '90s

Delightful murder simulator Hotline Miami was never supposed to receive a sequel, so we should be jolly grateful that its planned DLC ended up morphing into one. But after that, developer Dennaton Games says, that's it. No more. It'll bow out murdering men in the early nineties then after that, you'll need to satisfy any head-stomping urges yourself.

Countdown to the IGF 2013: Hotline Miami

Countdown to the IGF 2013: Hotline Miami

The Independent Games Festival (IGF) is a celebration of gaming's hidden gems. On March 27th, five games will compete to win the Seumas McNally Grand Prize. Every weekday until then, Shacknews will be highlighting a finalist, exploring what makes each game so unique.


Hotline Miami probably could be nominated for its soundtrack alone. Dennaton Games' stylish 2D beat 'em up is a bload-soaked murder-fest. But beneath the fast-paced combat and combo-powered high score system lies a sinister plot--one that will have you questioning the reasons behind your rampage.

Hotline Miami to bloody PS3, Vita this spring

Hotline Miami to bloody PS3, Vita this spring

Hotline Miami got a lot of attention on PC last year (though arguably not enough). In case you missed it on the ol' computer box, though, you'll be able to play it on the PlayStation 3 and Vita this spring. Better yet, it will be a cross-buy title, so purchasing either one nets you both versions.
