We get a look at four of Devolver Digitals upcoming games, all bound for PlayStation Vita release sometime this year.
During the PlayStation Conference at E3 tonight, Devolver Digital gave us a better look at some of their upcoming Vita titles – Broforce, Hotline Miami 2, Not a Hero and Titan Souls getting trailers, screenshots and details on the PlayStation Blog soon after.
Check out Devolver’s Vita line-up;
Broforce, developed by South Africa based Free Lives, is a “co-operative patriotism simulation” in which you play as “80’s and 90’s action heroes waging war against terror in almost entirely destructible nostalgic settings.”
Uh, what? Superficially, Broforce is a run ‘n gun which lies in the vein of Metal Slug. The game’s reactive environment encourages tactical play, with each “bro” (out of the fifteen the game currently features) having their own distinctive attacks and special abilities. The best part? You can go it alone, or team up with some friends to bring the pain in four-player online co-op.
Broforce is set to release sometime early next year, with “some fun bells and whistles and tactical strikes” included.
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number
The original Hotline Miami is a perfect example of something “Best on Vita”, and we expect that Wrong Number will continue this trend.
Fans of the original can apparently look forward to “the trademark fast-paced combat and intense soundtrack but with new twists and turns as the narrative shifts between different factions affected by the events of Hotline Miami”, according to the post on the PlayStation Blog.
Check out the newest trailer;
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is set to hit sometime later this year.
Not a Hero
From developer Roll 7 (who previously brought us OlliOlli), Not a Hero is a “mix of Elevator Action, Hotline Miami, and Gunpoint combined to make something that felt absolutely magical and altogether unique from the aforementioned games.”
A 2¼D cover-based indie shooter, this one’s set to turn some heads when it releases early next year.
Titan Souls, from developer Acid Nerve, is “inspired by minimalist games like Shadow of the Colossus and the intensely challenging Dark Souls”. The game tells the story of an unnamed warrior who is on a quest to bring down the ancient titans with naught but a single, indestructible arrow. In Titan Souls, there are no classes of enemies, no crafting, no grinding and no side quests – just you (the player) and the two dozen titans scattered throughout the land awaiting your arrow.
Titan Souls is set to release sometime early next year.
That’s four great games coming to Vita from publisher Devolver Digital (Hotline Miami 2 later this year and the others early next year), as well as two of their Vita titles already published (Dennaton’s original Hotline Miami and Vlambeer’s Luftrausers). Looks to me like Devolver’s support of the Vita won’t be winding down any time soon, and for that – we at TVL applaud them.
Look for more on these games and others as our E3 Vita coverage continues. 🙂
