“Blowing up a friend with a homemade spell-salad is 16 times more fun when you’re within punching distance of said friend.”
Magicka 2 is the follow up to the popular action-adventure video game Magicka. The sequel was announced at this year’s E3 as a console exclusive to the PlayStation 4. GamingBolt recently caught up with the game’s Associate Producer Peter Cornelius to ask why the game is not coming to the Xbox One.
“We had a few meetings with Sony and realised we agree on a lot of things; what makes a good game, our attitude towards our fans, etc,” Peter said to GamingBolt. “It’s a great partnership, and we’re really excited to bring this game to PlayStation. Blowing up a friend with a homemade spell-salad is 16 times more fun when you’re within punching distance of said friend.”
Judging by Peter’s statements, it seems that Sony were quick to jump on as soon as they got to know that Paradox and Pieces Interactive are working on a sequel. It will be interesting to keep an eye out on how long this exclusivity will last. Magicka 2 will release sometime next year for the PlayStation 4 and the PC.
