505 Games has announced Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise, a digital-only follow-up to 2010's teddy bear murder 'em up Naughty Bear.

In development at Behaviour Interactive and due for release on XBLA/PSN later this year, Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise puts players back in control of Naughty, the unpopular bear who sets out to commit grizzly murders on the furry holiday-goers on Paradise Island.

"Following the success of our first outing with Naughty Bear, we really wanted to push the limits and give players a lot more freedom to be as naughty as they can and help Naughty Bear get revenge on the other bears who have been so mean to him" said Victoria Reeve, Senior Global Brand Manager, 505 Games.

"With the first Naughty Bear game audiences responded well to the juxtaposition of cuddly innocence, with dark humour and over the top violence. We're really looking forward to seeing what they make of all the great new features we've packed into Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise."

Panic in Paradise features a completely overhauled combat system, a new levelling up system and 30 missions set across 11 locations within Paradise Island.

"Naughty Bear really struck a chord with gamers looking for something more than the same old gameplay," said David Osborne, Executive Creative Director at Behaviour Interactive, "With Naughty Bear: Panic in Paradise, we're turning the naughty dial all the way up to 11!"

It didn't strike a chord with us (or with many of you), of course, with Tom slapping down a 3/10 on the "shoddily put together title".

But will the sequel pander to its audience?
