PixelJunk Monsters 2 Nintendo Switch Demo Impressions

I vaguely remember trying out PixelJunk Monsters on the Playstation 3. I thought it was neat. And so when PixelJunk Monsters 2 was announced for the Nintendo Switch, I was interested in it too! Today, a demo was released for the game to the Japanese Switch eshop. I downloaded it and tried it out. Here are my impressions of the demo so far.

PixelJunk Monsters 2 is a tower defense game. The demo for it is currently only available on the Japanese Switch eshop, however that should change soon. If you can’t wait for soon and you have a Japanese eshop account, don’t be afraid to go ahead and download this demo. When you play it on an English account, the demo is fully translated into English!

Graphics wise, PixelJunk Monsters 2 is pretty cute. The characters and especially the areas you explore look like they are made out of clay. This is a good looking demo for sure.

As for the gameplay, its a pretty basic tower defense setup. A group of enemies are making their way toward your base. So as the main character, you wander around setting up defenses (arrow, cannon, and sword) to defeat the enemy. You get coins and gems to buy more defenses and upgrade your current ones. There is also a creature that sells items that you can use to defeat the bad guys too!

Outside of the main gameplay, there is a place where you can select stages, buy masks and shells, and unlock more stages.

I am really liking the PixelJunk Monsters 2 demo at the moment. I’m hopeful that the full game will introduce even more defenses and monster types to keep things interesting!

Here’s hoping that this game does very well on the Nintendo Switch. I’d like to see some of the other PixelJunk games come to the Switch too!

What do you think of PixelJunk Monsters 2? Are you looking forward to checking out the demo? Are you interested in the full game? Let us know in the comments!
