Well, that didn't take long.

Although the anticipated Joe Danger sequel debuted first on Xbox Live, PS3 owners are soon going to be happy: It has been announced that Joe Danger 2: The Movie will hit the PlayStation Network in the US on October 9 for the price of $14.99. Our European friends get it a day later.

And as a bonus for our patience, we'll be receiving an exclusive feature for the PSN version. It's known as "Joe Danger Gaiden," which is a throwback to when developer Hello Games made the original game. As you might guess from the title, it's gonna be uber-challenging; it'll take over 10 hours to complete (25 new levels) and with "no tutorials and no hand-holding," only the most dedicated will be able to finish it. …don't be too intimidated or anything, but even the guys on the dev team couldn't complete it.

That stuff didn't make the cut for the first game because they wanted to make it more accessible. But now it'll be available for all the fans who first made the game so popular, and we appreciate it. Think you can handle a jetpack…? That oughta make things interesting!

Sweet! I finally get to try this out. Never played the original. Best time of the year!

If this comes to Vita I'll have to get it. I played the demo for the first and it didn't leave much of an impression, but ever since all I've heard are great things.

See here's something that I don't like. It seems that, in the gaming sphere, the word Gaiden is instantly associated with difficulty, a sentiment probably created by the Ninja Gaiden series, but that association is wrong in the extreme. The approximate translation is actually side story. I suppose this could be regarded as such, but the goal seems to be centred on the difficulty and that's just… wrong.

Nevertheless, cool content. Good that they're willing to do this when they didn't have to, especially considering the 360 got the 'special edition' of the original game.

Well, yes, literally it's wrong. But this industry has come to associate "Gaiden" with "hard," just because of the series with that name. 🙂
