Hey PlayStation.Blog friends, Casey Lynch from Midnight City here again!
Costume Quest 2 hits PS4 and PS3 in North America today, which means costumed warriors Wren and Reynold are back to save Halloween! No pressure, right? I mean, you’d think they could just catch a break and have a normal Halloween like other kids and stuff. But NO!
A probably-very-evil dentist called Dr. Orel White, DDS, wants to save the world… from the terrors of SUGAR! To get rid of all those cavity-inducing candies for good, he plots to erase Halloween from history!
This simply won’t do. But what are the kids supposed to do? This isn’t like fighting simple Grubbins, those green pushovers. These are Time Wizards, and Kronys, and worse. You’re going to need some seriously sweet firepower to stop them — like SACKBOY, what?!
You’ll also have an improved battle system at your disposal, which includes a new special attack mechanic that rewards fast reflexes, and nearly four dozen Creepy Treat Cards that you can collect and use to increase damage, earn multiple attacks, and more to even the odds.
Are you ready to put it all on the line for Halloween? Will you travel to a faraway dystopian future, a place where candy is outlawed, and fun is a thing of the past?
Are you sweet enough to save the world? We sure hope so.
Costume Quest 2 is available today for $14.99 on PS4 and PS3, with other territories to follow shortly. And all you Vita fans out there, yes we love Vita and yes we’d love to bring the game to Vita, great idea! But we have nothing to announce about that right now.
