Everyone’s favorite foul mouthed hero is making his long awaited return, and he is coming to the PlayStation Vita. Q*Bert Rebooted has just been announced as a Cross-buy title across all the PlayStation platforms that will see a new and improved Q*Bert as well as the old arcade classic.

Gonzo Games, Sideline Amusements, Games Production Company, and LOOT Entertainment have created a reimagining of this timeless classic with new features that will give the whole game a more modern feel. In addition to improved graphics, some other big differences will be the change from hopping on cubes to hexagons. This inevitably changes the way the game will be played as it gives players (and opponents) more directional choices.

Other changes include the addition of power-ups, traps, and gems to collect. There will also be a variety of new characters to choose from as well as new enemies to evade. Time and score challenges will be included to give players the option to really test their skills.

Q*Bert Rebooted will allow you to choose from either the original classic or the new and improved version. It will be launching in North America on February 17 followed up with Europe on February 18 and will be Cross-Buy between the Vita/PS3/PS4.

Who else is excited to see the return of this amazing game?

    Q*Bert is one of my favorite classic arcade games. There have been several attempted reboots over the years, but they all kind of fell flat. The new hex grid looks like an interesting twist though. I’m excited to check it out.

    Glad that the franchise is still around, however I think Id rather play it at the arcade than on the go.
