Futuridium EP Deluxe brings arcadey space shooting to Vita

Spaceships are great, and blowing them up is even better, and blowing up giant spaceships with strafing runs across the vast hulls is best of all. Enter Futuridium EP, a retro-styled space shooter which is making its way from PC and iOS to Vita in revamped 'Deluxe' form.

Futuridium EP Deluxe will send players strafing across giant dreadnoughts, blasting energy cubes to restock their reserves, dodging defenses along the way and, ultimately, revealing the ship's core to blow it up. And getting points, developer MixedBag explained in today's announcement. Lots of points. With multipliers. Points!

The Vita revamp includes new levels, modes, music, and enemies, revamped graphics, and other odds and ends. It's due to launch some time from April to June. The original PC version is a free download, while it costs $1.99 on iOS.
