Worried that Double Fine productions would never make a disc-sized console game ever again? It’s been two years since Brutal Legend and studio head Tim Schaffer has said that enjoys working on DLC titles because there’s less pressure to be a major success and more room to take risks. Double Fine’s last two games, Costume Quest and Stacking, were both considered great successes in DLC landscape. What reason could they possibly have to make Psychonauts 2?
Two Words: Cookie Monster.

A recent survey from Microsoft shows some of the types of features the studio is looking into for the sequel. Dance Central 2 has supposedly been in pre-production since before the original was even released.
Some of potential features look to expand the game’s functionality; the ability to choreograph custom dances will appeal to core fans, while the addition of back-up dancers will add some Rock-Bandesque co-op gameplay. Apparently there may also be a “fitness mode”, pushing the game even further into the casual zone. There are also some technical improvements listed; the ability to replay specific portions of a dance and more helpful advice on how to improve.
