Q Games president Dylan Cuthbert has announced it’ll be releasing PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe for PSP via UMD on April 27 in the US.

The game was previously released as a digital release for PSP and PSPgo for both Europe and America, but the game is now available in a second flavour for $19.99.

The original PixelJunk Monsters was released two years ago for PS3 via PlayStation Network, with two subsequent games in Eden and Shooter released since then. Sequels for Shooter and the first PixelJunk game, Racers, are in the pipeline in the studio.
