Last month, Hello Games announced a new mobile entry in the Joe Danger series called Joe Danger Infinity. Just a few days later, as you might already be aware of if you follow them on Twitter, the Hello Games studio was ravaged by a flood, destroying much of their equipment. The team has been surprisingly upbeat during all of this, and in a looking-on-the-bright-side sort of way, it appears that the flood will not delay the release of Joe Danger Infinity as Hello Games has sent word that the game will officially launch this week on January 9th. Here’s a brand new screen showing off one of the new vehicles in the game.
As divulged previously, Joe Danger Infinity is an endless runner take on the Joe Danger formula which sees the titular stuntman shrunken down to toy size. He’ll be joined by an extensive cast of other toy characters, as well as brand new vehicles like tanks and planes, a first for the series. The January 9th release date is also significant as that marks the one year anniversary of the previous iOS version of Joe Danger ($1.99), which has had “more people playing Joe Danger than everything we had done before on console combined!" according to Hello’s Sean Murray. Look for Joe Danger Infinity to drop with all this week’s other new releases late Wednesday night in the US App Store.
