Blood but no sand in this Miami.

Hotline Miami’s a cracker of a platformer, as I like to call it. You can thank the visual styling and the soundtrack for a large part of that: it really helps you get in the mood of an 80s psychopath, whatever that happens to be. At any rate, the latest trailer for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number shows off a good amount of gameplay for a minute’s footage, confirming that the retro neons and blood-splatter reds are most certainly in this season.
There’s some intriguing hints given away, like the possibility that you might be able to store weapons in the trunk of your car (as opposed to it simply being the thing you get in/out of to start/end a level) and that character that follows the protagonist around. Is it a co-op mode of some sort, or perhaps an NPC you meet throughout the course of the game?
Game looks good, either way. Also, dual wielding uzis is fun as hell, so I can’t wait for that. Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is due out in the third quarter of this year.
