PixelJunk Shooter out in Japan this year

Q-Games mentions December release.

Q-Games' upcoming PlayStation Network release PixelJunk Shooter will go on sale in Japan this December, according to founder Dylan Cuthbert.

That's according to one of his many Tweets in the run-up to this week's Tokyo Game Show (thanks Joystiq).

PixelJunk Shooter - known by the codename PixelJunk 1-4 when we got our first hands-on this April - sees you piloting a yellow capsule through 2D caverns and doing a bit of grappling to rescue little waving men.

You'll have to watch out for enemies, rock-falls and lava, with a big emphasis on using water to cool your craft and lava to solve problems, and frequently the two in combination.
