Hotline Miami DLC will be 'about as long' as the original game

Hotline Miami DLC will be roughly the length of the original PC title, Dennaton Games co-founder Jonatan Soderstrom told Eurogamer.

According to Soderstrom, the upcoming downloadable content will build on the full title's narrative and will be significant enough in size that the studio plans to charge for it.

"I think we're going to do quite a big project," he explained. "It will probably be about as long as the full game, so probably we'll charge something for it. It will be like a sequel kind of, but building on the story."

Soderstrom added while there is no release window for the DLC as of yet, it will not take as long to deliver the content as it did to develop the original game.

"It's hard to say right now, but we're hoping since we have the game engine done and we just need to add more to it, it shouldn't take as long as it's taken for the first game to be made. Because there were a lot of difficult design decision that sort of made the game take some time to make. In the beginning we weren't really expecting to make a long game, so we were kind of slowly working on it the first couple of months, but we hope it would take no longer than four or five months to make the sequel, but we're not sure at this point."

The studio is currently in talks with Sony about a potential release of Hotline Miami to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita; However, Soderstrom remains unsure of how likely this will be, saying there is a "50/50" chance of its release on these Sony platforms. He adds he as "no idea" whether porting the title to smartphones is an option due to the precise controls of the game.

Hotline Miami received an 8.5 out of 10 from Polygon.
