Atomic Ninjas coming October 8 to PS3, Vita a week later

The multiplayer action platformer Atomic Ninjas has set a date with destiny. Developer Grip Games announced today that it will release on October 8 for $9.99 on PlayStation 3. The Vita version will follow a week later, but it will be cross-buy.

The studio made the announcement on the PlayStation Blog, along with detailing a new feature called "Noob Rage." If one player is getting left in the dust by the others, he has a random chance to become a fast, powerful, and invincible ninja. The effect lasts for a few seconds, or until he scores some points--whichever comes first.

Atomic Ninjas was originally announced for summer release, but obviously it's slipped past that. Grip did release a new trailer today, though, so you can get a closer look at Noob Rage in action.
