During this weekend’s Game Dev Direct, Ratalaika Games and developer Tinimations revealed that Klang 2 will be coming to next-gen consoles. The game was already slated to come out on all three major consoles as well as PC via Steam, but now the game will also be released on both the PS5 and Xbox Series X as a native app. The rhythm-action game is set to delve deeper into the game’s storyline and also reveal a little more about Klang’s past, while also offering you sick beats that you’ll have to bump and weave to. The game is set to come out sometime in Q3 2021. For now, here’s a little more info on the game from the developer along with the latest trailer.
