Mike Bithell has finally announced a release date for his much anticipated stealth-em-up Volume.
After being delayed the day before it was due to launch back in August 2015, we’ve learnt that fans can finally expect to get the game on their Vita’s from January 5th in North America and January 6th in Europe.
In a statement on Volume’s official website Mike Bithell had the following to say;
I know how many of you have been waiting eagerly for this version of the game. I get a lot of polite requests on twitter every day (along with a couple of slightly rude ones, but that’s ok). It’s been a source of frustration for me that we didn’t get to release it alongside the other platforms. We missed our launch day for personal reasons, but having missed that date, we decided to take the opportunity to pour a great deal of attention into the Vita version, learning from the feedback other platforms were getting, and working hard to ensure that this game was worth the wait. And while that wait was longer than we hoped, I’m proud of the result, and the game we’re going to be releasing.
Volume will be released on Vita on January 5th in America, and January 6th in Europe.
It’ll release crossbuy, so if you already own the game, it’ll be a nice bonus. If you don’t, when you do buy the game, you’ll be getting the game on PS4 too the second you buy. And if, say, you were to notice and purchase Volume in some kind of… sale… between now and release, then that discount would absolutely let you get Vita Volume at a lower price. And rightly so, we kept you waiting.
Thanks to PlayStation gamers for your support of the game, and for your patience. While I never want to be in this position again, I’m unapologetically excited to hand you folks the best possible version of Volume achievable on Vita this January.
Make some noise in the comments if you’re happy to finally see the game on it’s way, and be sure to stay tuned to The Vita Lounge as we’ll have a review of the game soon after launch.
