Naughty Bear didn't have the biggest audience but if you were one of the few who enjoyed it I have good news.
In case you missed it the original Naughty Bear let you control a homicidal teddy bear. You were able to find various weapons and could also use a lot of environmental objects as weapons, such as a grill. They even had special costumes of everything from a pirate to a superhero, with pre-order only costumes of Jason and Freddy that I've still never got :( . The story kicked off with this teddy bear being left out of a party and the announcer sends him on a killing spree. Now you need to have a special sort of twisted sense of humor to really enjoy this game. The graphics weren't close to cutting edge, the voice acting was cheesy, and the controls weren't perfect. But the game was more about getting a laugh than being game of the year.
It was announced that a sequel was in the works and then it kind of dropped off the map. Many of us assumed the game had been dropped and information on the sequel was nowhere to be found. And then today I was reading through a copy of Game Informer that I got signed up to again by shopping at Gamestop and I randomly found details about Naughty Bear 2.
The sequel is called Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise and will be a digital download for both PSN and XBLA. It will be here in September so it will be lost in the shuffle with big name titles coming out, but as a downloadable game it should have a reasonable price. Maybe the jimmys here at Gouki.com will even set FnJimmy up for a Golden Review. I know I'll be playing it either way.
And they even dropped an announcement trailer for any of you interested.
And some gameplay footage,
So will any of you be playing? Ever even hear of the first one?
