VVVVVV floating onto Vita

Terry Cavanagh's VVVVVV is coming soon to Vita, in case you need more spikes in your gaming diet.


Terry Cavanagh's platforming spike-fest VVVVVV is hitting the the PS Vita. However, while the 3DS eShop version features a number of platform-specific elements, it appears that the Vita version won't come with any additional bells or whistles. But it'll come with spikes! A whole lot of spikes!

Nicalis' Tyrone Rodriguez offers a quick overview of VVVVVV for the unfamiliar on the PlayStation.Blog. The idea is to avoid cleverly-placed spikes by moving from left to right and inverting gravity using the X button. It's fun and incredibly masochistic. "The gravity switch is an insanely awesome concept that allows for hundreds upon hundreds of clever puzzles," said Rodriguez. "What you'll find after a few minutes of playing is that you need to change and redefine your perception of a platformer, and how you think and find solutions to the challenges in front of you."

VVVVVV is currently available on PC, Mac, and Linux (DRM-free), as well as the 3DS eShop. A release date has not been given for the game's VVVVVVita version.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      I don't have a Vita so I'll say this: if you have a Vita please play this game.
