The first Hotline Miami, which last year came to PS3 and PS Vita from rage-fueled origins on home computers, was one of my favorite experiences on Sony's handheld. The responsive feedback of both triggers and analog sticks made the top-down shooter's frantic, twitch-timing combat an absolute pleasure, and its neon, drug-laced aesthetic pounded my OLED screen with eye-searing color.

Color me excited, then, for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, which is set to rock your PS4 and PS Vita later this year--Dennaton Games is targeting a Q3 2014 release. The "Dial Tone" trailer below features music that breaks away from the first game's hypnotic trance for something with a little more rock, and a few new faces (or, tops of heads) make an appearance. We see dual-wielding Uzis, a profuse amount of blood, a chainsaw melee finisher, and, for a few brief seconds, what appears to be two protagonists acting in concert (just after the 0:47 mark).


PSU gave Hotline Miami an 8.0 out of 10 in last summer's review. Hit the link to find out why this indie sequel is worth fussing over.
