Alien Breed Coming to PS Vita!


Alien Breed, the classic Amiga game from 1992 that was recently released for the Playstation Mobile platform (see our review here) has just been announced by Team 17 for the Playstation 3 and PS Vita and is due for release in February 2013.

Alien Breed offers the opportunity for both old and new fans to experience the original survival-horror game, and as with the PS Mobile release, features a choice of either old-school Amiga graphics or new enhanced graphics. The game features a Story Mode allowing players to choose from 30 levels including three new level packs: Convergence, Valiance and Synergy and includes enhanced visuals or allows gamers to play using the original 16-bit graphics.

New to the PS3 and Vita, players can team up on either PS3 or PS Vita via cross-platform play as well as Cross Save functionality allowing you to continue your save games from one system to another. Both formats will offer multiplayer with the Vita offering Ad-Hoc and online, and the PS3 offering online and local modes and leaderboard and trophy support will be on offer for both.

    • At the moment, there’s no word as to whether or not it’s Cross Buy but if it is then that should be some consolation for people who have purchased the PS Mobile version. Saying that, it’s still a good game on the mobile platform and there will be people out there who won’t have a Vita who can still get the PSM edition, but I agree that considering the release schedule perhaps both should have been released or at least announced simultaneously.
