The Angry Video Game Nerd remains one of the best known YouTube characters in gaming, or retro gaming at least. A trailblazer when the series began on YouTube, James Rolfe has taken his creation beyond 100 episodes and made a movie, while Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures was the first full official game for the franchise.
Developed by FreakZone Games and published by ScrewAttack, this first title landed on Wii U, 3DS and a host of other platforms, before a sequel was announced during the Summer.
Now we have a debut trailer and a new name for this sequel - AVGN 2: ASSimilation. As the title and source material suggests this is for mature audiences, and the video below is certainly for older viewers.
There are plenty of references for fans to pick up in there, and developer FreakZone Games has already stated in the past that it's "definitely going for Nintendo again", so fingers crossed on that score.
Of course, the first game hasn't actually arrived in Europe yet, but we're following up to try and find out what's happening with that release.
Are you excited about this sequel and hoping to see it on the eShop?
WOOT! First time I ever got the first comment on a article. Anyway I hope the amount of adult content in videogames goes down, everywhere... It's really annoying when I know everything about said adult content yet I'm still not aloud to play games with them.
I played the first game quite a bit, and it had a pretty good soundtrack as well. Might pick up this one.
Definitely picking this one up. I mean, I did enjoy the first for what it was.
Still patiently awaiting the original on Wii U over here in Euroland...
@starcatcher77 Yeah, that ain't gonna happen. But what will happen is you will get older and then you can do and play what you want.
I can't wait for this game and all its adult content.
Okay so i haven't beaten a single level in the first game as it's so crazy hard but who cares! It's awesome and I'll buy part two for sure!
So, AVGN is the to MegaMan X what AVGN was to MegaMan huh ?
Looks really nice, although i havent played the original.
Much like the situation with Binding of Isaac, neglecting Europe for so long has made my excitement dwindle down a heck of a lot. Except this situation is even worse because there hasn't even been any heads-up whatsoever about the Europe situation ever since the 3DS version USA trailer, as far as I could see. At least for Isaac they kept teasing/giving updates and now it seems to have an actual, definitive release date.
On the other hand, AVGN doesn't even FEEL like it's going to happen in Europe anymore. Even if they announce two years from now that we're finally getting the first game, me and my interest will have moved on elsewhere.
The first game was hard as balls, but I'll definitely be grabbing the second one.
The first game is still in my backlog. I really gotta start working on that thing, because it's spiralling out of control.
I nearly lost it when I saw Mr Bucket
Mr. Bucket was glorious. Especially now as Board James seems to be leading into he was a prequel to the Nerd.
I love that song!
AVGN Amiibo, please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It will be the only Amiibo I'll ever own.
@WaveSpooky That Mr Bucket episode is one of the funniest thjings I've watched online a few years ago and his inclusion into the game just sold me on a copy.
looking forward to the 2021 release in the UK...
