More FuturLab awesomeness coming to PS Vita
Velocity Ultra, the Vita version of FuturLab’s critically acclaimed PS mini, was released a couple of days ago on the European PS Store. It’s even free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, but the team isn’t stopping there!
Robin Jubber, a programmer at FuturLab, recently revealed on the PS blog that the studio’s other minis game, Coconut Dodge, is also coming to PS Vita in the form of Coconut Dodge Revitalised. The original was released back in 2010 as FuturLab’s first game, and it wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that the developer wouldn’t be where it is now without it.
Coconut Dodge is a frighteningly addictive game, in which the goal is to dodge coconuts (obviously) and collect treasure. As you’d expect, the Revitalised version will include HD visuals, PSN trophies and an online leaderboard. Like Velocity Ultra, it’ll also be free for PS+ subscribers upon its release on 5th June (and only £1.99 for everyone else).
But that’s still not all.
In the comments section of the article, PSN user Aces73High asked whether the studio’s three PlayStation Mobile games (Beats Slider, Fuel Tiracas and Surge) would ever be released as full PSN titles too. Interestingly, James Marsden, Managing Director of FuturLab, chipped in to say:
“Good things happen for those who ask…
… all I can say at the moment.”
Very interesting, we think you’ll agree.
With Killzone: Mercenary and Tearaway still a good few months away, Sony are becoming increasingly reliant upon indie developers to provide great content for the Vita. To that end, it’s awesome to see FuturLab delivering and, as ever, we look forward to seeing whatever they’re working on next.
