Roguelike rhythm RPG Crypt of the NecroDancer hits PS4, PS Vita next month

The acclaimed dungeon crawler shimmies onto PlayStation Store from 2nd February

We are very excited to bring Crypt of the NecroDancer, the award-winning and critically-acclaimed roguelike rhythm game to the PlayStation family! Move to the music, delivering beatdowns to the beat on PS4 and PS Vita from 2nd February.

Crypt of the NecroDancer turns up the volume on typical 2D dungeon crawling action by adding rhythm-based movement and combat. You control main character, Cadence, as she explores each zone, picking up gear and defeating musically motivated monsters. Then unlock multiple new characters who offer different challenging modes of play.

Four unique zones featuring randomly generated levels offer exciting new gameplay experiences every time. Earn Trophies and play our Daily Challenges to test your hard-won rhythm skills. The PS4 version of the game will also support dance pad gameplay!


Crypt of the NecroDancer features Cross Buy support, so if you purchase it on either PS4 or PS Vita (thank you!) you’ll get it on the other platform at no extra cost. And as an added bonus, we’ve included a new exclusive soundtrack created by Jake “Virt” Kaufman, the composer for Shovel Knight, and one additional surprise!

Crypt of the NecroDancer will also be coming to Japan on both PS4 and PS Vita early this year. Japanese fans: stay tuned for Spike Chunsoft to announce the Japanese release date soon!

See you in the crypt!

Yay finally! Can’t wait to rock out to Danny B’s music!

so not a hero and this for plus then.

at a guess ill say this will take up a vita slot.



I’d be more than happy with this and Not a Hero being two of our February IGC titles!

I would say that both (or at least one) will appear as a ps+ title but in the ps4 slot, for vita you will have at least one psp title.

For a while that Sony stopped putting crossplataform titles on ps3 and ps vita…

Awesome news!

Crypt of the NecroDancer looks ridiculously good. In fact, I’ve been particularly excited for this one ever since it was first announced for Sony platforms last year :0)

Oh and by the way, thank you for bringing us the Vita version at the same time as the PS4 release – sadly, that’s becoming something of a rarity these days!


Is the FamilyJules7x soundtrack included with the PS version of the game?


Fantastic! I’ve been checking the Necrodancer twitter a couple of times a week for months now to see when this would be happening.

What is this ps4 dancepad? Haven’t seen a dance mat since the ps2 days.

Does this just play like a roguelike but you have to make inputs in time with beat?

Yeees finally! Now I have something that helps me survive the time waiting for The Binding of Isaac Afterbirth:)

Fun game, I got it on the Steam sales for like 3€ and I’ve played it quite a bit. I’d recommend it.

Looks great, can’t wait to get stuck in!
Just hope it’s not broken like Dragon Fin Soup (still) is!


My Vita say THANKS!

Can’t wait to get this on my Vita.
