Naughty Bear Sequel Invites Naughtiness
What do you do to a naughty bear? Spank him? Make him sit in the corner with no supper? Have him stand with his nose on the wall and not let him move? In this case, you give him a sequel.
505 Games announced today that Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise will be making its naughty way to console in 2012. The title will also ditch the retail release and distribute right to the PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade.
It’s a little tough to gauge where exactly fans stand with the newest announcement. The YouTube page where the announcement trailer lies seems to be getting struck down faster than a homemade set of Icarus wings. Nonetheless, whichever side of the road you were parted on, the game is adding a twist to a traditional stuffed animal endeavor.
“Following the success of our first outing with Naughty Bear, we really wanted to push the limits and give players a lot more freedom to be as naughty as they can and help Naughty Bear get revenge on the other bears who have been so mean to him” said Victoria Reeve, senior global brand manager, 505 Games. “With the first Naughty Bear game audiences responded well to the juxtaposition of cuddly innocence, dark humor and over the top violence. We’re really looking forward to seeing what they make of all the great new features we’ve packed into Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise.”
