‘Peggle 2’ coming first to Xbox One

“Peggle 2,” the sequel to the No. 1 puzzle game of 2007, is launching this year, first on Xbox One. PopCap Games, creator of some of the world’s most beloved video game franchises and a division of Electronic Arts Inc., provided the first glimpse of “Peggle 2” at gamescom this week.

“Peggle 2” offers all-new levels, improved power-ups, fantastic multiplayer modes, gesture controls with Kinect for Xbox One, the ability to customize the “Peggle Masters” who host the game, and more.

“With Peggle 2, we’re taking everything that our fans love about Peggle and bringing it to another level,” said Jared Neuss, lead producer. “The new Peggle Masters have tons of personality, their powers are all completely over the top and there is a massive amount of content for players to explore. We’re also focused on taking full advantage of all that the Xbox One has to offer by giving our fans new ways to control the game, share their favorite moments and compete with their friends.“

Just as in the original, “Peggle 2″ combines elements of pinball, pachinko and billiards, and adds liberal doses of whimsy, fun, excitement and challenge – not to mention rainbows and a fifth of Beethoven.
