Developer Grimm Bros announced today that they will be bringing a new serving of their debut RPG, Dragon Fin Soup, to the PlayStation Vita in the form of a major update that will launch later this year.
Titled Dragon Fin Soup: Extra Chunky Edition, the new update will be available for the Vita alongside the PS3, PS4 and Steam versions of Dragon Fin Soup.
Dragon Fin Soup: Extra Chunky Edition will see the PlayStation Vita version receive the latest “1.07 Community Chowdown” patch currently available for the Steam version, alongside the following additional features;
- Ability to feed pets to level them up
- Toggle button for the grid view
- New “Black Knight” pet inspired by Monty Python and the Holy Grail
- New dungeons
- New “Trash Talk” system
- New items, recipes, weapons
- And much much more as you can see from the DFS Tutorial Video here!
To bring this version of the game to the PlayStation, Grimm Bros have formed a partnership with Twitchy Thumbs Entertainment, whose CEO Jim Buck has been working on PlayStation platforms for over 20 years.
In the press release that we received, Grimm Bros CEO Ash Monif also apologised to those that bought the game on PlayStation consoles after the game was plagued with issues (see Jenny’s review of Dragon Fin Soup here to find out more) ;
“We want to apologize again to all our PSN players in the community. We had no intention of leaving you hanging for so long after the initial version of DFS launched, and there has been a lot of confusion, frustration, and false information. It has been a difficult and complicated process to say the least, but we are making headway. We know you are beyond resilient and patient, and we are forever grateful to you all.
In addition to the upcoming re-port of DFS:ECE to PSN, we will send all of you who purchased a copy of DFS for PSN a free STEAM or DRM key to hold you over until the update goes live. We know many of you have been waiting to play Dragon Fin Soup and hope this helps quench your RPG appetite. Thanks again for your continued support, and stay tuned for more updates and news coming during PAX East this year, including how to redeem your free STEAM/DRM copy”.
In the press release, it was also announced that the game will be coming to Xbox One, iOS, Android, FireTV, Mac and Linux later this year.
