Box Box Boy

Nintendo announced at their Treehouse event today that the sequel to Box Boy doubly named Box Box Boy will be coming out at the end of this month on the 3DS eshop. The game features a cast of different boxes trying to save the world by growing boxes out of their bodies. These square chains can be used to make bridges, hook onto ledges, and other crazy stuff. The sequel allows you to make two sets of box contraptions for more brainteasers. As an added bonus, the original game will be going on sale close to its doubled up partner’s release. The first game was an absolute joy to play and I can’t wait until June 30th to try try again.
