PixelJunk Monsters expansion details, shots

'Encore' expansion pack revealed for everyone's favourite PSN title

If you own a PS3 and haven't downloaded PixelJunk Monsters, you're currently failing in life. It's awesome, and the 'Encore' expansion pack will be extending the fun in May.

Q-Games' expansion, will give players a whole new island, Toki Island, containing 15 more inevitably infuriating levels to complete (doesn't this game make you angry, too?).

Gameplay looks to be remaining mostly the same, except a reduction to the cost of the Tesla Tower, and the Ice Tower (which we tend not to use) being made a stock item.

Five new chirpy tunes will be added to the quirky soundtrack, too.


On level, Racer Gardens, will be based on a track from the not-quite-so-successful PixelJunk Racers, which Q-Games boss Dylan Cuthbert says is "really tough". The price for the expansion is yet to be announced.

As well as PixelJunk Monsters Encore, Cuthbert also promises PJM themes, wallpapers and avatars for PS3 owners to decorate their XMB with.

Shots of two new levels are below.
