Hello PlayStation Blog! Let’s get right to it! We’re excited to announce that our game Joe Danger will be launching on PS Vita on 3rd September 2 across the SCEE region, via PlayStation Store!
If you hadn’t heard of Joe Danger by the way, here are some nice words people said about it when it launched on PlayStation 3:
“One of the most fun, fully featured games on PlayStation 3” IGN 9.5
“Utterly delightful” – 10 Destructoid
“Ambitious and exciting” – 9 Game Informer
And that’s not all! PlayStation Plus members will get it for FREE as part of their September batch of games! Actually, you might already know this, because Sony’s official PS Plus for September announcement has just made that pretty clear :)
We know it’s been a bit of a wait, but we wanted to make sure it is perfect, and we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve. It’s everything you’d expect from Joe Danger in your hands!
It runs at a super smooth 60fps throughout, it’s pin-sharp and super colourful. It features every level from the PS3 original, plus the never before released on PlayStation Laboratory levels, making 84 levels in total! That’s a lot of game. Our UK indie friends Four Door Lemon have really helped us make it the perfect version.
What else… There are 25 characters to play as, a full set of Trophies to win, and the PS Vita version features a slightly tweaked control system so it plays really nicely. For the first time you can create your own levels with Vita touch controls! The game automatically downloads player ghosts for you to race against, which is another feature that has never been on PlayStation before, and there are online leaderboards for you to compete on, against your friends and the world.
So you could say it’s more Joe Danger than ever, smaller than ever :D
But what about the sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie!? Well, it’s still on the way! We’ll have new news on that very soon-ish.
