2D sidescrolling masters WayForward have formally revealed Mighty Switch Force 2, a sequel to the excellent 3DS and Wii U platformer. Now that Patricia Wagon has left the police for the fire service, players will have to get their head around using water jets to advantage while they mess with dimensions.
Details and screens after the break.
Here's the blurb, for your blurby pleasure: Patricia Wagon returns to heat things up with a refreshing spray of blaze-battling action/puzzles. This time Officer Wagon and Corporal Gendarmor join Planet Land’s Fire Brigade to prevent Tangent City from burning to the ground.
Players will combine their wits and reflexes to rescue the reformed Hooligan Sisters and the lost USBs (Ugly Secret Babies) hidden throughout each level. New puzzle types, weapons, enemies, unlocks, and a truly epic soundtrack bring the sizzle this Spring!
From the screenshots (and premise), it's clear that manipulating water will be one of the key new puzzle components. We'll have to use Patricia's hose to extinguish fires, battle monsters and wash away mud blocks - even making it go uphill under pressure.
