Joe Danger 2 dated for PS3

Hello Games has staple-gunned a final release date to the PlayStation 3 version of Joe Danger 2.

The stunt-‘em-up will be released in North America on October 9 and hits Europe the following day – in other words, next week’s PlayStation Store update.

That’s not all however, as the PS3 release will pack 10 hours of extra content, as detailed below by Hello Games’ Sean Murray.

"This is also going to have what we call "Joe Danger Gaiden" as a bonus for PS3 players," said Murray. "It’s actually a throwback to when we made the original Joe Danger, as four guys sat in a room playing our own game, we fell into that classic trap of playing our own game too much.”

"Our first prototype was this very tight, very challenging game that took about 10 hours to complete. No tutorials, no handholding, just fun arcade gameplay. Our friends loved it, but only the most skilled players could master it. Actually, if I remember right, none of us were able to complete it.”

"At the time we just had to go back to the drawing board, we wanted Joe Danger to be more accessible and easier to get into. It’s sad that no one but us got to experience this "Gaiden" version. When we came to make Joe Danger 2 for PS3, I thought it would be a great opportunity to let our original fans play that unseen game."

For the uninitiated, Joe Danger 2 follows the eponymous daredevil as he gains favour with a Hollywood movie director, and is tasked with performing a variety of stunts on set. The game, billed as a “kind of” sequel to the original, features a host of vehicles as you take on classic action-movie stunts in everything from bikes to police cars.

Joe Danger 2 was previously released on Xbox 360 on September 14. Stay tuned to for more details.
