Video: Frobisher Says - Mega Fun Pack Adds 15 New Mini-Games 200°
99w ago - Honeyslug Producer Mark Inman confirmed today that the Frobisher Says Mega Fun Pack adds 15 new mini-games and is out Tuesday with a video trailer below.

To quote: If you enjoy being ordered to open seafood, not smile at woodland creatures and punch a bear in the face, you'll be delighted to hear that Frobisher's Mega Fun Pack is coming to a PS Vita near you on Tuesday!

As if the previous requests Frobisher made weren't crazy enough, the Mega Fun Pack contains 15 new games involving such ludicrous demands as joining a gurning squad, milking a mammoth and driving to Stephen's house. Who is Stephen? We're still not quite sure.

Frobisher hasn't exhausted all the ways you can use your PS Vita to solve his conundrums, so expect to utilize the system's unique motion and touch capabilities in even more bizarre ways with the Mega Fun Pack.




In case you haven't played lately, Frobisher has added some new features for the main game - and our previous Super Fun Pack DLC - too! If you're used to doing his bidding, you'll be pleased to know that Frobisher has found some Trophies he no longer wants, and he's going to make you work for them.

For those...
