UK developer Rebellion has discussed the development of NeverDead, revealing the creative tensions that resulted from having to work under a Japanese publisher and director.
A second batch of NeverDead DLC arrives on 29th February, publisher Konami has announced.
NeverDead Expansion Pack Volume 2 adds new playable character NADA Chief Sullivan to the gam's online modes as well as two costumes for protagonist Bryce Boltzmann.
You'll also get three new challenges for the expanded Sewers level - 'Egg Hunt', in which you'll compete to collect valuables; 'Fragile Alliance', which sees competitors race to a series of checkpoints; and 'Onslaught', which tasks you with dispatching armies of demons.
Get a head.
Konami has announced the first DLC for Rebellion's head-rolling action game NeverDead.
It adds a new character, expands the Asylum level, adds three new challenges and two new costumes for main character Bryce Boltzmann.
The NeverDead Expansion Pack Volume 1 launches on 21st February.
Final Fantasy 13-2 has entered the UK all-formats chart in first place, ending FIFA 12's reign on top.
UPDATE 3: GAME removed Metal Gear Solid HD Collection from its website "as we reached out [sic] pre-order allocation," the shop said. "Your order is safe and should be shipped today."
"Yeah, so I heard that in NeverDead, you can rip your own head off and use it to roll through ventilation shafts. I heard you can attach your head to your severed limbs and just wobble around on the floor kneecapping demons with your twin pistols. I heard you can pluck your right arm off and then throw it, still clutching an Uzi, into the mouth of a giant boss, so that he'll swallow it and you can then shoot him from the inside and the outside at the same time."
Princess, you heard right. You can do all of that stuff in NeverDead, because NeverDead is kind of amazing. And it's lucky that NeverDead is kind of amazing, because - quite a lot of the time, at least - NeverDead also isn't actually very good.
Konami's latest is the fruit of a weird collaboration between Metal Gear Acid director and long-time MGS stalwart Shinta Nojiri and Rebellion, a venerable studio based right here in plucky old England. Together, they've come up with a game about Bryce Boltzmann, a grouchy Tom Waits-alike who wanders the streets of New York hunting demons with a sexy lady named Arcadia.
A head of the game.

Try not to lose your head.
Worldwide sales of Pro Evolution Soccer have shot past the 70 million sales barrier, Konami has announced.
As it prepares to launch the next game in the series, PES 2012, Konami said the football franchise continues to "uphold strong repeat sales".
The Japanese publisher saw a 3.3 per cent increase in revenue during the first three months of its 2012 financial year to 54,915 million yen (£423m). Profit for the quarter was 4,043 million yen (£31m) – up a whopping 220 per cent.
Remember that bit in The Iron Man where the Iron Man chucks himself off a cliff? Maybe he falls, actually – I haven't read it in a while. Anyway, the Iron Man topples off this cliff – because he's sad, because he's a metaphor for the Cold War, or because life is so lonely and pointless that toppling off cliffs is the only smart thing to do – and when he hits the ground he smashes into hundreds of pieces.
Demon-hunting horror for PS3, Xbox 360.
Aliens vs. Predator developer Rebellion has a third person shooter in the works for Sony's forthcoming NGP handheld, and is shopping its reworked game engine to publishers in search of more work.
Screens for Halloween.
Who wants to live forever? Not wise-cracking demon hunter Bryce, that's for sure. After 500 years on this mortal coil, he's royally bored of Abba tributes and Only Fools and Horses repeats. And there's only so many times you can listen to people whining about The Phantom Menace before you want to rip off your own head.
