The charming platformer will come to Sony’s handheld with the full intention of taking advantage of the platforms unique control inputs. “We’re really glad with this Vita version of Ethan: Meteor Hunter.” said Olivier Penot, Producer & Co-founder at Seaven Studio. “The touch screen just made sense with the telekinesia feature. This is something players asked for and we listened, this is really a community release!”
The game will not only utilize the Vita’s front touch, but also the rear; making use of the oft ignored function. However those looking for a more traditional experience will also be able to ignore these touch-centric functions in favour of a scheme more in line with its console counterpart.
Additionally the game will come sporting cohesion across PlayStation platforms, featuring not only shared leaderboards between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions; but it will be cross-buy enabled as well. Moreover the PlayStation 3 version of the game will receive both a demo and a sale this week, with the full-game set to be available for 50% off if you are a PlayStation Plus subscriber; or a 30% discount for regular users.
Ethan: Meteor Hunter is a puzzle-platformer in which you play as a heroic mouse with the ability to freeze time and manipulate the environment with the use of telekinesis. By utilizing the dynamic physics in the game you will overcome many challenging obstacles over the game’s 50 levels and three worlds.
No official release date has been announced as Seaven Studio are awaiting confirmation from Sony.
