In today’s Xbox Podcast with Major Nelson, Double Fine Production’s Studio Head Tim Schafer and Game Informer’s Senior Editor Ben Reeves join us to talk about this month’s Game Informer cover story that takes a deep dive into the creation of Psychonauts 2. Check out the episode below to learn more about what we can expect to see in the upcoming sequel, 16 years after the studio left players on a cliffhanger after the original Psychonauts launched in 2005.
In Psychonauts 2, you play as Razputin Aquato, a trained acrobat and powerful young psychic, who has realized his lifelong dream of joining the international psychic espionage organization known as the Psychonauts! But these psychic super spies are in trouble. Their leader hasn’t been the same since he was kidnapped, and what’s worse, there’s a mole hiding in the Psychonauts headquarters. Raz must use his powers to stop the mole before they execute their secret plan—to bring the murderous psychic villain, Maligula, back from the dead!
Now that the original Psychonauts is available with Xbox Game Pass for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, and on Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta), fans and new players alike can experience the classic action/adventure platformer, ahead of Psychonauts 2’s release, later this year.
