After a slip-up on the PlayStation Network Store just over a week ago which allowed countless PlayStation Vita owners across Europe to purchase and download the indie shooter Gunslugs early, an official release date has now been set for the game.
Abstraction Games’ shooter will be hitting the PlayStation Store on 18th February in North America and the day after on 19th February across Europe. Tj’ièn Twijnstra from Abstraction Games said “I’m very proud to announce that multi-ward winning, rogue-like run’n gunner Gunslugs is making its way to PlayStation Vita.”
Twijnstra continued, “Originally developed by legendary super developer Pascal Bestebroer under the Orange Pixel label and now adapted (and published) for the PS Vita by Abstraction Games, mostly known for the extremely well received Hotline Miami for PlayStation platforms. Gunslugs has almost everything you ever wanted in a good game, a big cast of unlockable characters, screen filling end bosses, nice variation of weapons, drivable tanks, jetpacks, hidden worlds, princesses, armor shop, white wizards, nerds with handhelds, rain, snow, hell, hellworms, sandworms, train rides, chip-tunes by Gavin Harrison, and now finally with BUTTONS!”
The PS Vita version naturally comes with Trophies, Leaderboards and Cloud saving. And… on release the game will have a 20% discount for PSPlus members the first week after it’s released.”
