Psychonauts 2 just got a new trailer with Jack Black belting out vocals over it.

Fans of psychedelic imagery rejoice – Psychonauts 2’s trippy trailer is here to make you smile. Check it out below:

Here’s what the Xbox blog has to say about it:

“The team at Double Fine Productions is working hard on one of the most anticipated sequels in the history of history. Psychonauts 2, a follow-up to the 2005 cult comedy classic, is coming in 2021 and we shared a look at what’s in store during today’s Xbox Games Showcase. Brain worlds a-plenty, incredible vocal performances from the original cast and awesome celebrities, new powers, and the next chapter in the greatest story of all time await players eager to expand their minds and enjoy some old-school platforming action.

“Our latest trailer shows Raz hot on the mole’s trail but there’s a catch: the brain containing information he needs has been left in a jar for way too long. Using his ability to leap into minds, Raz works with the brain’s owner (a mysterious ball of light voiced by Jack Black) in order to reawaken their lost senses.

“Their journey is a colorful trip through psychedelic concert halls and the strange backstages of the mind. Psychonauts 2 contains all the jumping and platforming fans crave but adds new psychic powers for some added zing! In this new level, Raz’s companion teaches him the mind-bending “Time Bubble” ability, which can be used to slow down moving objects or obstacles to create makeshift platforms, or freeze fast moving enemies long enough to PSI-Blast them into oblivion. There’s no need to rush when you literally control time and space! Well, except for that whole part where the villains might summon a world-devouring monster…”

There’s no release date yet, but it’s coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PC. It’ll be offered as part of Game Pass and optimised for Xbox Series X.
