The Xbox 360 exclusive hack & slash game is getting a sequel thanks to Konami. N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights will feature more of what we love (in other words hacking stuff) and less of what we do not (hacking stuff alone). N3II will allow for a friend to jump in and hack stuff together. This is a good thing as the game developers promises more enemies and "Titanic Boss Battles". I hope our heroes have an iceberg or two handy. N3II is expected to retails this summer. Read on for more information.
