Critical success doesn’t always mean financial success and critical failure doesn’t always mean financial failure either. Take Naughty Bear for example. Despite a 43 rating on Metacritic.com, the game was able to sell enough copies to warrant a Gold Edition rerelease which included DLC, extra costumes and new multiplayer modes. But even with those developments, it has been somewhat of a shocker to hear the game would be getting a sequel.
505 Games has released an announcement trailer for Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise which will be coming to XBox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network as a downloadable title. For those who never played Naughty Bear, the game is essential the perfect example of showing people why not to be a bully. For some reason, in his early stuffed life Naughty Bear never became friends with the other bears. Now bitter, Naughty Bear extracts revenge in terribly violent ways on those who tortured him.
Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise looks to expand on this concept with Naughty following a group of bears on vacation after not inviting him. But really, who could blame them? Would you invite a homicidal lunatic on vacation with you? Even if he didn’t kill you, he would probably get you kicked out of your hotel.
Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise is headed to the PlayStation Network and XBLA this fall. Check out the full trailer below and stick to the Flickcast for your E3 coverage.
