During Microsoft's Xbox One event at Gamescom
, EA announced Peggle 2
would come to the next-gen platform. Speaking with GameInformer
, Lead Producer Jared Neuss revealed some of the changes the game will see when it arrives later this year.
PopCap's pachinko-inspired game features new worlds, new masters - those amazing characters that gave players special abilities - and a different method of bringing its characters to life. They are now fully animated and react to the on-screen action, Neuss said. Showcasing a new character with the ability to hide a board's blue pegs, Neuss said the new Master powers will be very "over-the-top compared to the old Master powers."
Despite changes, Peggle 2
looks a lot like Peggle
. But ... Saying "Peggle 2
looks like more Peggle
" is like saying, "Why do I have all this dumb blood in my body?" Well, because you need it to live.
will arrive on the Xbox One at the console's launch and make its way to other, unspecified platforms, at an undisclosed date.
