PlayDead’s breakout platforming success will be arriving on Sony’s handheld.
Limbo, the indie platformer who’s stark black and white, illuminated monochromatic shadows style of graphics and creepy gameplay have made it a smashing success with gamers of all kinds, will be coming to PlayStation Vita according to IGN.
First released on Xbox Live in 2010, the title later made its way to PSN and Steam. Such was the success and positive reception that it even managed to find a commercial, retail release.
The developer PlayDead is currently embroiled in another project altogether called Project 2. For now, the PlayStation Vita port will be handled by Double Eleven, who recently developed LittleBigPlanet on the handheld for Media Molecule.
As of now, there’s no set release date but we can expect Limbo on PS Vita sometime later this year. The game follows the story of a nameless young boy in limbo searching for his sister and encountering all kinds of fiendish and surreal obstacles.
