Back at E3 2013, the PS Vita version of Dead Nation was announced, and today I’m pleased to confirm that the game will be launching on 16th April. So you will finally be able to carry the zombie apocalypse in your pocket.
For those of you who still aren’t in the know after the launch of the PS4 game last month, Dead Nation is a top-down shoot ’em up style game, set in an apocalyptic zombie infested world. This PSN classic was originally developed by the talented HouseMarque, also known for RESOGUN and Super Stardust.
Like the PS4 version of the game, the PS Vita version has been developed by our friends at Climax Studios, and they have faithfully recreated the same classic experience of the original PS3 game. Journey through the campaign as Jack McReady or Scarlett Blake, or replay your favourite levels and compete for top scores in the single mission mode. Prefer not to experience the apocalypse alone? Well, you and a friend can play the game in both online or ad-hoc co-op. Make sure you upload your stats whenever possible, to support your country in the global standings.
Dead Nation will cost €7.99, and the Road of Devastation DLC can be purchased separately for €3.99, or for the complete experience, at the best price, you can pick up the bundle for €9.99. Anyone who has previously purchased the PS3 game or Road of Devastation, will be entitled to the PS Vita versions at no extra cost, thanks to cross-buy.
Dead Nation feels right at home on the PS Vita, and everyone who has seen it so far, has really enjoyed it. I can’t wait to hear what all of you think once you get your hands on it.
