‘Hotline Miami 2’ Announced for 2013 with New Trailer and Screens

by Joseph Leray

It’s one thing to know that a sequel to Dennaton Games’ breakout bash-’em-up “Hotline Miami” was in the works — the two-man team of Cactus Söderstöm and Denis Wedin have been casually tweeting about it since late last year — but it’s another to know that it’s been officially announced or to have a gruesome teaser trailer as visual proof of its existence.

Accompanied by a sparse guitar riff and an unnervingly repetitious phone operator, the “Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number” trailer introduces its predecessor’s hallmarks: top-down perspectives, bright neons, pixelated anti-heroes,alarmingly violent pipe-blows to the head.

As publisher Devolver Digital’s press release put it so succinctly: “You’re a murderer. You murder people. Again. And again.”
