PSN release for awesome RPG Bastion is ‘possible’
Upon its release in July, Bastion was met with near universal acclaim, due to its deep story, satisfying gameplay, and incredible presentation. Unfortunately for PS3 users, Bastion is currently only available on Xbox Live and Steam. However, PS3 Attitude contacted the developer, and they revealed that a PSN release for their awesome debut title isn’t out of the question…
For those that don’t know, Bastion is an action role-playing game set in a strange world, and is the first title developed by Supergiant Games, a seven-strong team based in San Jose, California.
At the start of the game, the main character, ‘The Kid’, wakes up after the Calamity, a devastating event that caused the death of most of the world’s population. To save humanity, the Kid needs to repair the titular Bastion, a miraculous machine that has the power to undo the damage wrought by the Calamity.
Along the way, the Kid wields a whole arsenal of weapons, and fights an army of unusual creatures. In a genius design decision, his every move is described by a mysterious narrator (voiced by Supergiant’s own Logan Cunningham), who also acts as your guide throughout the game.
Bastion’s colourful cartoon visuals are genuinely a sight to behold, and Darren Korb’s original soundtrack is just as poignant. Our descriptions could never do the game justice though, so take a look at the above trailer to see Bastion in action.
We’re understandably sad that we can’t play Bastion on our console of choice, so we contacted Supergiant Games to ask if it would ever see a PSN release. In reply, Amir Rao, responsible for Design and Studio Operations at Supergiant, said the following:
“We’re still focused on our PC support with no plans at this time for any other platforms. Anything’s possible in the future though!”
This clearly shouldn’t be taken as confirmation, because it clearly isn’t, but it at least shows that the team at Supergiant is open to the possibility of a PSN release for Bastion. If we all think positively, keep our fingers crossed, and wish really hard, then maybe, just maybe, it could eventually happen.
