Indie developer Dennaton Games has announced the Hotline Miami 2 release date will fall on March 10 for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, PS3, PC, Mac, and Linux.

A standard version of the notorious shooter will sell for $15 (£11), though those who preorder via Steam or will get a 10 percent discount. Meanwhile, a special edition will come with a remix EP of six tracks featured in the game.

The game's publisher Devolver Digital has also launched a cross-promotion with another game it represents, the current-gen remastered shooter PayDay 2: Crimewave Edition.

Those who buy the standard edition of Hotline Miami 2 will be able to access the Hotline Miami Mask Pack in Payday 2, which features six masks: Richter the Rat, Jake the Snake, Alex the Swan, Tony the Tiger, Corey the Zebra, and Helmet.

In addition, those who buy the Digital Special Edition of Hotline Miami 2 will get Payday 2's Jacket character set, with all six masks, an additional "Richard Returns" mask, a Sociopath perk deck, the Carpenter's Delight hammer weapon, an SMG called Jacket's Piece, and 10 gallons of Hype Fuel.

Hotline Miami 2 comes more than two years after its acclaimed predecessor, which GameSpot's review described as "a discotheque of death that's very hard to walk away from."

The game is banned from general release in Australia.
