    Nice! Was hoping guacamelee would show up one day but this is a good consolation prize.

    This was the exciting game they mentioned in interview late last month, good get PA!

    Vita-TV users beware: according to Kyle, the digital version of severed doesn't work on the system. (It's a touch game yes, but that didn't stop others from working).

    Awesome I love this game.

    Absolutely a no go on PSTV. You fight with fruit ninja like swipes. A controller just wouldn't be the same game.

    Maybe it can be the start of a beautiful partnership between play asia, eastasiasoft, and drinkbox and gucamelee to come later after severed goes well.

    This is a big hell yeah for me. Interesting that DrinkBox chose eastasiasoft, but maybe it's the best deal around and a sales and shipping model that customers in every country are feeling. No fuss, no muss and no strings attached and a bonafied retailer.

    Maybe they see that it's good to get going with them too, since Vita carts will be in production longer in the East. If this sells out, I wouldn't be surprised if we get at least Guacamelee not too long after. Mutant Blobs Attack would be cool too... that game is always forgotten as part of the amazing Vita launch line up.

    It kind of just depends on what kind of touch implementation and how ingrained it is into a game's design, whether it would be a good fit or not. Even Tearaway Unfolded on PS4 is a pale imitation of the original Vita game, despite having more levels, a different mechanic and a slightly retooled story. It almost feels sad and empty by comparison, like a depressed version of the game.

    Its a fantastic game. Really would like Guacamelee to get a physical Vita release one day though, since its even better.

    I was always confused why fangamer never released a vita copy alongside the PS4.

    Sometimes it's all it takes...

    This phenomenon is known to bring relationship issues with your wallet however. Don't say you weren't warned, kid!
