Just in time for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Freddie Wong’s action-comedy series “Video Game High School” is back for a second season.
The season premiere episode will be available in mid-July on RocketJump.com and on FreddieW’s YouTube channel. Video game scenes in the series are now shot at 48 frames per second, in similar fashion to Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit.”
Much like the last season, “Video Game High School” follows a group of students from an elite, competitive gaming academy in a world where video games have become a competitive sport. This time, Brian D and his girlfriend Jenny Matrix are trying to bring up Video Game High School’s reputation in the first-person shooter field after the arrest of video game star The Law.
In a statement, Wong said: “Fan support for VGHS was greater than anything we could have ever imagined and we feel privileged to have been able to film a second season. The new episodes take the story to a whole new level and we’re sure that our viewers will be excited to see what happens to the whole crew.”
Wong and “Video Game High School” co-creator Matt Arnold raised more than $800,000 on Kickstarter to partially fund the six-episode second season. Dodge is a presenting sponsor for this season and will showcase their Dodge Dart prominently in the series’ drift racing scenes.
