It's a full-blown sequel as hinted by Q-Games' Dylan Cuthbert earlier in the week. It's also now an official product, as it's just been unveiled on the Playstation Blog.

“For those that haven’t already heard, PixelJunk Shooter 2 is in full production, full steam ahead, anchors away and all that… commotion to that order,” he wrote.

“I can’t say much about it now, but it will have some features that are new to the PixelJunk series in general and will be bigger than the first game! We’re busy implementing all the ideas that were left on the drawing board for the first game to make Shooter 2 as jam-packed full of crazy fun as possible.”

How could we possibly not be excited? The original PixelJunk Shooter was a beautifully designed experience. With the mechanics already introduced in the first game, it'd be safe to assume Q will go a little bonkers with the design of this version. Awesome, we can't wait.

We assume there'll be more on PixelJunk Shooter 2 at E3.
