The video shows a lot of similarities with its predecessor, Double Fine‘s 2005 platformer Psychonauts. Here, psychonaut Raz is exploring the mind of his teacher, Hollis Forsythe, which is now equal parts neon-drench casino and hospital. During the video you see a little exploration of the world, but also a bizarre Pachinko minigame where you have to guide a pill into a stomach.

Back in April, Double Fine said “It is real. It is playable. It is coming.” about their forthcoming platformer, announcing that it would be releasing in 2021. For fans of the original, the news that Psychonauts 2 is finally edging towards launch is appealing, even if it’s not entirely clear when that release date is.

The amount of coverage has even led to some fans discussing the possibility of a “surprise” release sometime soon. Whether this means a surprise release during an E3 conference, or something later this year, the announcement of a release date is eagerly awaited.

Game Informer has a heap of information on Psychonauts 2 that you can check out, and are promising more this month.
