Remember Naughty Bear, that game with the killer bear nobody loved? Well, it’s back. 505 Games have announced a sequel, Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise for XBLA and PSN. In Panic in Paradise, Naughty Bear takes revenge on the inhabitants of Perfect Island when the bears go to a trip to Paraside island and don’t invite him. Sounds reasonable.
“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 Victoria Reeve, senior global brand manager, 505 Games.
“With the first Naughty Bear game audiences responded well to the juxtaposition of cuddly innocence, 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.”
Panic in Paradise features a completely overhauled combat and leveling up system in addition to equipment customization. The game looks to be pretty deep for a XBLA/PSN game, featuring 30 missions over 11 distinct areas of Paradise Island. Set for the fall, only time will tell how receptive gamers are to a sequel they never asked for.
