Swing into Action in the Hypnotic Platformer PixelJunk Eden 2, Coming to PlayStation and PC

Jump, swing, and spin in the latest instalment in the award-winning PixelJunk series

JULY 05 2023, KYOTO, JAPAN – Independent developer Q-Games are proud to announce that PixelJunk Eden 2 is coming to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Steam and the Epic Games Store. As the latest addition to the award winning PixelJunk series of games, PixelJunk Eden 2 sees players twirling, leaping, and tumbling through hypnotic landscapes, accompanied by a mesmerising soundtrack composed by celebrated multimedia artist Baiyon. PixelJunk Eden 2 is available to wishlist now on PlayStation, Steam and the Epic Games Store.

Q-Games have released a new trailer and screenshots to accompany the announcement, showing off the game’s unique visual style in stunning 4K for the very first time.

In this long-awaited sequel to the much-loved PixelJunk Eden, players explore the beautiful gardens of Eden as a Grimp, tiny creatures with big personalities that swing from silk to collect pollen. When nearby seeds fill with collected pollen, the garden will evolve and expand, constantly growing and changing in response to the player’s actions. By nurturing the garden, Grimps can locate Spectra, the source of life in the garden, as well as other Grimps with unique abilities and Spices that provide a wide variety of gameplay customisation options.

From the mind of the game’s director Baiyon, comes a mesmerising experience that provides a completely unique experience that’s easy to pick up and get lost in. Baiyon provided both art and sound direction for the original PixelJunk Eden, Eden Obscura and PixelJunk Eden 2.

Feature Overview:

    • A hypnotic harmony of sights and sounds, brought to life in stunning 4K
    • Full single player campaign with the option for local 2 player co-op
