Bad news for those of you who were hoping to play Roll 7’s upcoming shoot-em-up Not A Hero on Vita, as it has been revealed that the game has now been cancelled for PlayStation Vita.
The news comes the same day the PlayStation 4 version was dated, with press releases noticeably staying silent on the Vita Version, many fans, myself included took to twitter to ask for a response but none was given, however a blogpost was updated on the games official website to confirm the cancellation.
“First and foremost there was the issue of getting the game to work on Vita, I’ve always considered the Vita to be a key political constituency, but making games work on it is incredibly hard, especially as it’s basically a miniscule television hiding inside an obese DS4 controller.”
“In the end, we tried simply copying the whole game onto a 3.5″ floppy disk and jamming it into the back of the Vita, but this caused dangerous overheating and one of our test kits exploded, killing the entire NOT A HERO Vita Programming team in a fully upsetting and totally avoidable fireball of nasty burning. Initially, we thought it was baddies what had done it, but it turned out to just be our team’s own fantastic ineptitude. It was at this juncture our lawyers advised us to abandon the port and come up with an elaborate excuse for its cancellation.”
To summarise, it seems that both Roll 7 and Devolver Digital both had issues getting the game to run on PlayStation Vita which ultimately lead to the cancellation of the game, however we did hear some time ago that Devolver were having issues with the port, so it seems like those issues were never fixed.
