Ms. 'Splosion Man exploding in 2011

Twisted Pixel creating a sequel for next year with new leading character; platforms not announced.

Twisted Pixel's 'Splosion Man debuted in July of 2009. It won warm reviews and most recently 'sploded to the top of the Xbox Live Arcade sales charts thanks to a hefty Black Friday discount. Now, the Texas-based studio is back for more fiery action.

The scientists just can't catch a break.

Twisted Pixel today announced Ms. 'Splosion Man, due out in the fall of 2011. The studio was light on details in the announcement and did not note a price or platforms for the game. The original 'Splosion Man was released exclusively on Xbox Live Arcade.

The game's announcement trailer shows Big Science lab technicians successfully capturing the 'Splosion Man from the original game. In their excitement, one of the scientists stumbles into a bottle, which proceeds to fall from its ledge and create the pink-bodied, yellow-bow-wearing Ms. 'Splosion Man.

For more on 'Splosion Man, check out the Twisted Pixel postmortem on the title, as well as GameSpot’s review.

Anybody ever notice that there's been a gender mix-up with things like MS. PAC-MAN? It has "Ms." and "Man" in it. Just figured this out, actually!

Played the first one and I just didn't get it...thought the game was pretty boring. Didn't even pick it up when it was on sale this blackfriday on live.

As long as Ms. Splosion has some unique tricks up her 'sleeves' to differentiate herself from Splosion Man, I'll end up getting this just for the humorous chaos that ensues.

The first Splosion Man was very good, so I'll definitely want to get this one. I need to go back and finish the game though. Same thing with Trials HD. I'm sure a sequel for that is on the way as well.

'Splosion Man was good, but the boss fights and harder levels were lame and overly frustrating, I hope his Ms. is a bit more clever and entertaining!
