PixelJunk is plotting a return to PlayStation later this year, with Q-Games' PixelJunk Scrappers Deluxe punching its way to PS5 and PS4.

Trying to pin a genre on this one is a little tricky, but it's basically a 2D side-scrolling brawler... but you also have to gather the broken remains of your enemies and dump them into the back of a truck to score points.

Here's how the developer describes it: "It’s a beat ‘em up that’s also a clean ‘em up, with a focus on cleaning up the streets of Junktown. Both literally, by stacking trash, and figuratively, by wiping out waves of enemy robots. Trash means cash on these streets, and your bounty increases with the more items (and scrapped enemies) you throw into the back of your garbage truck."

It looks like it could be a lot of fun, especially with friends. The game will support both local and online co-op, and it even has cross-play functionality, which is always a plus. Meanwhile, if you want to play on your own, you can enlist the help of AI-driven pals.
