The release date for 1001 Spikes, the retro-inspired platformer about an archaeologist, has been announced for PlayStation Vita.

1001 Spikes follows the adventures of Aban Hawkins, the son of Jim Hawkins, as he hunts for treasure in Africa. Aban has 1001 lives to get through 100 levels where everything tries to kill Aban. With an 8-bit art style and extreme difficulty, the game gets its inspiration from NES titles that defined the term “NES-hard”.

The game is set to be released on June 3rd, with the pricing for North America set at $14.99.
