Hello Games Managing Director Sean Murray has shared a video today announcing a Joe Danger PlayStation Network sale alongside some gew characters, as follows:
When my three friends and I first got together as Hello Games and started work on Joe Danger, we never expected the amazingly supportive response we've had from the PlayStation community.
So what better time to have some fresh news than at Thanksgiving :)
First off some people still haven't even played the multi-award winning Joe Danger yet! Just for those patient people, between the 23rd and 30th of November you can purchase Joe Danger in the American store for HALF PRICE.
That's just $7.49 for what many are calling the "Game of the Year" on PSN (mainly this was our Mums... but they know their games). That's the cheapest 30 hours of death-defying, stunt-biking, high-octance gameplay you can get ANYWHERE.
To celebrate the sale, we're releasing some awesome new characters for Joe Danger, each of these comes with their own unique style, new motorbike, crazy new moves and special collectibles. Grab a new character to show off your new skills in multiplayer or use them to record hilarious replay videos!
We thought it might be nice to ask the community for their suggestions for new characters and here is what they came up with (don't blame us). Firstly we have the ghoulish, undead Knight "Sir Bonehead', collecting Holy Grails to undo the curse of the Lady of the Lake. We've also got Joe wearing a Chicken suit, with egg-cellent new special moves like "The Red Rooster" and "Cock-a-Doodle-Danger"!
The most popular suggestion by far was for a playable Monkey (of course), so say hello to "Chuckles the Chimp", you mightn't know his name, but maybe his Fez will be familiar.
We don't have Thanksgiving here in the UK, but Hello Games really like food, so we celebrate it anyway. That's why we decided to let loose Joe Danger's turkey-chomping, Native American brother "Geronim-Joe". Prepare your best War Cry and have a happy Thanksgiving as you gobble down some tasty turkey on your trusty steed!
Hello Games wants to genuinely thank the community again for their amazing support. We really hope you enjoy the new characters or grab a copy of Joe Danger at half price! Go and spread the word :)
