Double Fine Productions is one of the most beloved American development studios, producing such cult classics like Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, and of course, Costume Quest. Yet no matter how much fans have enjoyed Double Fine's games, the studio has yet to produce a sequel for anything...until now.
Founder Tim Schafer told IGN today that Costume Quest 2 is in full production and will arrive in time for Halloween 2014 (because a game like Costume Quest can arrive at no other time of the year). According to publisher Midnight City, Wren and Reynold will return from the first game with a "new batch of costumes with which to transform into giant super powered fantasy Hallowarriors." It will also feature a "deeper and juicier" battle system.
If Costume Quest 2 is commercially successful, does that mean we will finally get the Psychonauts sequel fans have been clamoring for since its 2005 release? I guess we'll have to wait and see. In the mean time, enjoy this rather odd Costume Quest 2 Announcement Trailer:
