Frozen Synapse: Tactics heading to PS3 and PS Vita

frozen synapse logo Frozen Synapse: Tactics heading to PS3 and PS VitaTurn-based tactics title Frozen Synapse was originally released for PC in 2011, and now a reworked version of the game is coming exclusively to PS3 and PS Vita.

A week ago, Double Eleven (developer of LittleBigPlanet PS Vita) announced their new publishing division, D11 Games. Now they’ve gone one step further and announced their first game, Frozen Synapse: Tactics.

The original Frozen Synapse was developed by independent British studio Mode 7. Upon it’s release back in May 2011, it was extremely well received by critics and gamers due to its innovation of the strategy genre, high level of replayability and awesome soundtrack. Check out the above trailer (for the PC version) to see the game in action.

However, according to Mark South, COO of Double Eleven, Frozen Synapse: Tactics is much more than a simple port of the original game:

“Frozen Synapse for us represents some of the best work coming out of the UK and onto the PC. We know there’s also a great console game in there as well waiting to be realised. We don’t want to give too much away yet, but I will say that Frozen Synapse: Tactics is not simply a transition of the original onto console; we will be giving it a complete Double Eleven makeover.”

Not even a tentative release date was announced, but it sounds to us like it’s fairly early in development. Cross-Buy also hasn’t yet been mentioned, but we’d say it’s definitely a possibility given Double Eleven’s close relationship with Sony.
