Joe Danger was an absolute gem of a game, and now developer Hello Games have announced a follow-up.

Hello Games are describing Joe Danger: The Movie as something very different from the original game. Other than his motorbike, Joe will be using jet-packs, skis, tanks and other things in this sequel. Well that’s certainly what the film-like poster suggests.

Apparently, you’ll be creating film scenes and showing off with some over the top stunts. Sean Murray, Hello Games’ Managing Director, seems very enthusastic about the sequel:

“It’s called Joe Danger: The Movie and it’s kind of a sequel to Joe Danger, but it’s also something entirely new. I guess I would say that the entire gameplay experience of Joe Danger on PSN, would be just one short scene in this new game,” Murray said.

“We’ve kind of gone a bit crazy in terms of ideas and scope, or at least I really hope we have. If you liked Joe Danger, then I think it’s going to rock your world. Even if you didn’t like it though, this is different enough that we might just win you over. That’s the idea, but like I say who knows, it’s a very different game, and no one but us has seen it yet.”

There’s no word on release date or the formats that the game will be available on, but speaking to Eurogamer, Murray had the following to say: “”We’re not able to talk about platforms yet, but I reckon we will reach a much larger audience than PSN this time. That’s the plan.”

Joe Danger: The Movie will be shown off at gamescom and PAX Prime.
