Nintendo Life editor Tom Whitehead is currently lording it up at the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg, but fear not — in-between consuming vast amounts of alcohol from a beer stein and gorging himself with tasty bratwurst, he continues to have the best interests of Nintendo Life at heart, and to that end has been talking to the lovely chaps at Black Forest Games about future projects, one of which is a sequel to Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.
During Tom's interview with the studio's Adrian Goersch, it was confirmed that the Giana Sisters 2 is in the early prototyping stages, with a target launch date of late 2015 or early 2016. The target platforms are Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One.
We really liked Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams when we reviewed the Wii U version back in August of last year, branding it "an admirable effort that provides an innovative, entertaining and highly challenging experience."
Are you looking forward to a sequel? Let us know with a comment.

They never bought the DLC Rise of the Owlverlord to Wii U. Hoping they will and the next game as well
So does this imply the first game sold well enough on WiiU that the system deserves a sequel? Cause boy that isn't the blarg we hear from "AAA" devs.
Nice disclaimer. Now if only I could remember if I've been to Hamburg or not? 14 cities in 21 days college bus tour fueled by beer took it's toll on my memory of the trip.
Nice to see Wii U in the same sentence w/ PS4 and X1. Has that ever happened w/ a retail title? Project Cars is the only other game I can think of but not sure if that's retail or DL only?
They couldn't even deliver the off-screen patch to the American audience. Not interested in supporting them.
The DLC is a much better game. (And it is better at 60fps that was a big change).
Awesome! Still need to finish the first one, though what I did play was awesome.
Yup. They definitely need to patch the first game. It was still decent, but it needed a bit more polish, like the off-TV fix and maybe a performance patch. With that said, I would keep an eye out for the sequel.
I got the first one when it was 40% off for owning at least one of the other indie games part of the deal.
No patch, no DLC, no buy. I'm not buying a new game when you don't bother to support the old one.
lower the price
Cool, but... STILL waiting on that patch announced months and months ago.
I got this game in the same deal as @SCAR392. I had to force myself to beat the first world and never went back to it.
The first one could not engage me enough to want to finish it, can not see myself buying a sequel.
I bought the first during the 40% off sale and have yet to get around to it. Maybe someday...
Perhaps if they want to show how much support WiiU has gotten they could patch the audio for the gamepad and give us the DLC they promised ages ago because I enjoy the Giana Sisters games, but wtf?
I loved Twisted Dreams... but what about that off-TV play patch? I really need that sound on the gamepad to justify finishing the game.
I bought twisted dreams as part of that indie sale months ago. I really can't bring myself to play it.
I've gotten to the last world. It's a simpler game, so I can see why some people wouldn't like it. I'm pretty sure everyone agrees it needs a patch of some sort. They need to work that out.
The first game is pretty cool, although it does have some flaws (mainly: stages are way too large and too few; I'd be way happier with a greater number of smaller stages). Either way, I'll watch this one closely.
The original has the honor of being the first game that I've downloaded and deleted without finishing. It was a mediocre platformer at best, with eye-burning visuals. The only thing is had going for it was the whole world-switching mechanic, and even that was mostly cosmetic. Sure, it made a couple floating floors switch places, but altering the whole background did nothing, save for opening a few wells. If it was more thoughfully implemented, it could have been great. As it stands now, it's just a cheap hook.
Have they released the volume patch yet?
Guess I'm in the minority here that really enjoyed the first game and can't recommend it enough. But, I play consoles games on a TV screen, not a small gamepad screen ... so a patch for that was never a concern for me. Really hope we do get the sequel.
They should finish Twisted Dreams first! Patch it and bring the DLC, then we can talk about a sequel.
And if they do a sequel, I hope it's a sequel from the C64 or DS version. The Wii U version didn't feel much like a Giana Sisters game and was the worst of the trilogy.
Just bought the Twisted Bundle (steam version) off HumbleBundle.com for less than 4 bucks...STEAL. And that includes the DLC.
This made my day! Super excited to play a new one. I still think its a "must download" title for wii-u.
Looking forward to it!
Have yet to finish the first one, but its a pretty good game.
I love how some people who clearly didn't read the article are wondering about whether or not a Wii U version will come.
Spoiler alert: it is coming to Wii U!
Loved the DS game... but the can't say the same for the Wii U version. But happy for anyone who is interested, the more Wii U games the better.
It sounds like I share the same sentiment as many of the other people in here; in that it's a cool game, I really like a lot of aspects of it, but it just couldn't pull me in enough to want to beat it. I guess for me the sequel is a maybe. I really dig the soundtrack in the original though.
I too would love to know why the GamePad sound patch has never been released in North America.
That being said, it is nice to see the support for the WiiU.
Twisted dreams was amazing but I didn't finish it, the last baddy was way too tough
For all the US people complaining about the patch...we got it in Europe ages ago and it was (as far as I'm aware) submitted to Nintendo of America at the same time so the delay is down to them. Might be worth directing your misplaced anger at Nintendo rather than by punishing the devs and threatning to boycott their next game.
I loved Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams, can't wait for the next one.
Meh, how hard is it to release a patch for the freaking gamepad sound? I seriously hate devs that "forget" to add gamepad sound
Or off tv
"For all the US people complaining about the patch...we got it in Europe ages ago and it was (as far as I'm aware) submitted to Nintendo of America at the same time"
As far as I know, that isn't the case! Either way, I can't remember this game ever updating when I started it up. If the update still hasn't arrived, then that's terrible. But since the game's so good, I also want that sequel!
Update: I think you are right after all. When I started up the game yesterday, there was a update. So I guess they solved the problem.
