Extreme Gamer writes: "LocoRoco 2 takes the formula that worked so well in 2006 and adds a few new features expanding upon the rich groundwork created in the first jumping bean outing. This includes new abilities, new levels, and more interesting design elements along with all of LocoRoco's charm and personality. LocoRoco 2 is twice the pastel fun then the original using the same wacky formula. Unfortunately for North America we are getting LocoRoco 2 a little later than the rest of the world as LocoRoco 2 was already released in 2008 back in Japan, Australia and Europe. I would have been nice to dish LocoRoco 2 out to family and friends for Christmas, however its better late than never... and seeing how good LocoRoco 2 is, I could have waited even longer."
