FEZ release date confirmed for PS3, PS4 and PS Vita
This is it. We’ve come to the end of development, FEZ is finally coming to Sony platforms on 26th March! It’s been an incredible adventure and we couldn’t have made it without the amazing work of BlitWorks and the support of Sony’s team. In the name of all of us at Polytron, thank you so much!
Since day one of the release in 2012, people have been asking for a PS3 version of FEZ. We believe that the level of quality was worth the wait. Blit took the time to make a solid C++ conversion that runs smoothly at native resolution on PS Vita, and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3.
On top of that, playing it on PS4 is what we consider to be the best-looking and smoothest FEZ experience you can get on a TV set, running at beautiful 1080p (and yes, 60fps too). You wouldn’t think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez’s fist… but it really does look even crisper and blockier – in a good way.
No one’s going to blame you for digging around, but you won’t find many big additions in these versions of the game. However there are a few surprises, especially in the PS4 version: the DualShock 4’s lightbar has been put to the task of bringing a little bit of FEZ’s world inside your own home, and you may not need to look everywhere for that dusty pair of red/cyan glasses to get access to a very late-game easter egg… Funny story: to test the new 3DTV support, we had to spend a weekend running around computer shops to find a monitor that sports an integrated emitter. When we did though, and started up FEZ, our minds were forever expanded. I think we can see the fourth dimension now?
So the PS4 version is loaded with sexy features, but definitely don’t hold off from getting a dose of FEZ on the go, especially with a cross-save slot shared across all three platforms! I personally idled the game in a puzzle room and transformed my PS Vita into an infinite Disasterpeace music generator. We’re excited to see what other ways people will find to enjoy the first portable version of FEZ.
Let’s all enjoy the universe of FEZ one more time or for the first time on a PlayStation!
