FEZ Turns Heads on PS4, PS3, Vita March 25th

Marie-Christine Bourdua's Avatar + Posted by Marie-Christine Bourdua on Mar 03, 2014 // Producer, Polytron

This is it. We’ve come to the end of development, and Fez is finally coming to PlayStation on March 25th! It’s been an incredible adventure, and we couldn’t have made it without the amazing work of BlitWorks and the support of Sony’s team. In the name of all of us at Polytron, thank you so much!

People have been asking for a PS3 version of Fez since day one, and we believe it was worth the wait. Blit took the time to make a solid C++ port of the game, which runs smoothly at native resolution on PS Vita, and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3.

The PS4 version is what we consider to be the best-looking and smoothest Fez experience you can get on a TV set, running at beautiful 1080p (and yes, 60fps too). You wouldn’t think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez’s fist… but it really does look even crisper and blockier — in a good way.

No one’s going to blame you for digging around, but you won’t find many big changes in these versions of the game. However, there are a few surprises… especially in the PS4 version: DualShock 4’s lightbar has been put to the task of bringing a little bit of Fez’s world into your own home, and you may not need to search for that dusty pair of red/cyan glasses to experience a very late-game easter egg… Funny story: to test the new 3DTV support, we spent a weekend running around computer shops to find a monitor that sports an integrated emitter. When we found one and started up Fez, our minds were forever expanded. I think we can see the fourth dimension now?

So the PS4 version is loaded with sexy features, but definitely don’t hold off from getting a dose of Fez on the go, especially with a cross-save slot shared across all three platforms! I sometimes idle the game in a puzzle room, transforming my PS Vita into an infinite Disasterpeace music generator. We’re excited to see what other ways people will find to enjoy the first portable version of Fez.

Let’s all enjoy the universe of Fez one more time (or for the first time) on PlayStation!

Is this 3d now? Man, that waill be fantastic. I saw that the PS4 had no 3D Blu Ray support and assumed that trickled into the gaming spectrum, but I guess I was wrong. Between this, Limbo, and Trials: Fusion, I love seeing some of this downloadable stuff going cross platform. Huzzah!

I’m super excited about this! I have been hoping for Fez to be on the PlayStation; especially the Vita.

fantastic! does the PS4 version play in 3D at 1080p as well?

I’m so happy to see more titles supporting 3D on PS4, since awesome titles like Puppeteer had great-looking 3D on PS3!

will the PS4 version have 24-bit/lossless audio assets?

Is Fish still a part of Polytron? If so, then you’ll never get my money.

Wow, I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this, but it’ll be in 3D on PS4? You just earned yourself a purchase. It’s so nice to see the 3D game selection on PS4 slowly expanding.

Hopefully the big PS4 firmware update will include a 3D Blu-Ray patch, so I can stop reverting to my PS3 to watch 3D movies. That’d be great.

Really looking forward to playing this on my Vita. Thanks, Polytron, for sticking to it and making FEZ happen on PSN.

I hope this spells good news for Polytron, with them being able to move on from the gigantic debacle that is Phil Fish’s breakdown.

Speaking of which, two questions (doubt they’ll be answered, what with this being on Page 2):

1) Will Phil Fish be getting any royalties from the sales of Fez on PlayStation?

2) Can Polytron move on with Fez 2, despite Phil’s temper tantrum?

No FEZ 2? Come on. Marcus Beer no longer works for Gametrailers. It’s over. Move on. Please release it!

Don’t get too excited about 3DTV support, you have to beat the game TWICE to enable it.

I’m not very happy with the devs right now. Paid for the game for the fourth time now. Would have no issue doing that for a game this good, except I bought this version because of this post and other previews pimping the 3DTV support.
