Developer Pixbits, makers of fun and addictive side-scrolling title Junk Jack, have been talking about making a new version of the game for a few months now. But we now have official word that a new one is on its way!

Updated from a version 2.0, the new game will be called Junk Jack X and it will have tons of new content packed into it. There will be a level of customization available that will be at role-playing game levels. It's really way more than you would expect for a game whose sibling is something that's much simpler.

One of the reasons for the delay is that Pixbits wanted to make sure that the new game would take full advantage of all the latest hardware and software from Apple. If you'd like to see more about what went in to this decision-making process, head over to the Pixbits blog for greater detail.
