A little over one year ago, Jonatan Söderström and Dennis Wedin’s Hotline Miami launched on PS3 and PS Vita, thanks to the efforts of fellow developer Abstraction Games and the good folks at PlayStation.
Between now and then, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number was announced and PS4 took the world by storm, but we always knew that Dennaton Games’ landmark hit had to make its way to PS4. That’s why we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Hotline Miami will launch for PS4 on August 19th in North America.
So what’s new? Well, the team didn’t want to tamper with the perfection that is Hotline Miami for the latest release, but there were certainly some fun new options that were only possible on PS4. Gamers can now use DualShock 4′s touch pad to look around and lock on enemies, and actually shake the controller itself to perform execution moves when you have an enemy pinned on the ground. And to take the violence to the next level, the sounds of those same execution moves are amplified through the speaker on the DualShock 4 itself. Ouch.
Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital hope you enjoy this latest version of Hotline Miami and are hyped for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. Hotline Miami is a cross buy game, so if you own it on PS3 or PS Vita then you already own it on PS4.
