Howdy!

Today is a great day. The version of Spelunky for the PlayStation®3 and the PlayStation®Vita we’ve been working on at BlitWorks has been released both in America and Europe.

Spelunky is a 2D platformer with randomized levels where endless combinations of crazy stuff can happen everytime you play, thus redefining the word ‘addictive’.

The game came out last year for the XBox360 achieving great success. Earlier this month a slightly more featured version for Steam and GOG was released, but today it makes its debut in Sony’s desktop and (for the first time) handheld consoles.

What sets this port apart from the others is:

– Cross-buy & Cross-play: Buy the PS3 version and get the Vita one for free (and vice-versa). Play in one console and your progress will be automatically sync’d in the cloud letting you continue in another console where you left.

– Wireless co-op mode: Up to 3 Vitas can be hooked up via Wi-Fi with a PS3 to play in co-op (either adventure or deathmatch). Or use your Vita to play against other vitas on the go via Ad-Hoc.

– Every Vita owns its own camera, so there’s no need for everyone in the game to be constrained to the same frame like in other versions.

– Touch features and accelerometer 3D effects on menus! (Vita only)

– Controller vibration feature in PS3

There’s a free demo awaiting for you to try at PlayStation Store.

The full version is priced at $14.99 in America and 14.99 € in Europe. If you’re a PS Plus subscriber you’ll get a 20% discount.

The port is getting fairly good reviews so far 🙂

Enjoy!
