Portable version of popular PS3 shoot ‘em up is in the works
Hi everyone! I’m excited to let you know that we are bringing our shoot ’em up game Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype to PlayStation Vita this winter. The original PlayStation 3 version was a big hit with fans and we received a lot of requests for a PS Vita version. It was popular with the press as well, with IGN giving it 8.5/10 and awarding us the IGN Editiors’ Choice award.
Like all of our games, Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype runs on a custom-built engine giving us excellent control over the PS Vita hardware. As a result, we are aiming for a console perfect port, running at 60 frames per second with little to no load times. To make high score and trophy hunting more exciting, the PS Vita version features separate high score tables and a new trophy set.
All the cool features of the original game are still there, including up to 10 exciting stages, a dynamic score-linked difficulty system, three different player ships with more than 10 unique weapons and special limit attacks, challenge mode, online high score ranking, replay playback and lots more.
Söldner-X 2 also supports Cross-Buy. That means if you already own the game on PlayStation 3, you will be able to download the PS Vita version free of charge and vice versa. So don’t forget to look out for Söldner-X 2: Final Prototype on the PlayStation Store this winter!
Please let us know your thoughts and questions in the comments. And yes, we are still working on Rainbow Skies for PS3/PS Vita, which we plan to launch in 2015.
