So much has happened since PS Vita’s launch in North America two years ago – many amazing games were released, Remote Play functionality with PS4 was added, and we announced PlayStation Now is coming to PS Vita. The platform has greatly transformed in the past year, and the passionate support and personal stories I’ve heard from our development community have been truly inspiring. Plus exciting things are on the horizon, including the launch of our new slimmer model PS Vita this spring.
Put on a mask (did I mention they’re all animal heads and that each one has a different benefit?) and ‘take care’ of anyone your answering machine tells you to. Sure, it may sound a little crazy, but that’s part of Hotline Miami’s appeal. This top-down action game requires careful planning to execute the perfect take-downs. Starting tomorrow, PlayStation Plus members will be able to download Hotline Miami for free on both PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
Almost as fast as Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital could announce Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, we started getting questions on whether it would be coming to PlayStation platforms. And again, if it hasn’t sunk in yet, the answer is “yes.” Please pay attention. So let’s move on a bit and talk more about why we’re bringing the neon brutality and blazing beats of the next Hotline Miami to PlayStation.
Thanks for your patience through our maintenance period today. There’s a ton of content this week on the PlayStation Store including the new Deadpool game and indie sensation Hotline Miami for both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita (it’s Cross-Buy too!). MLB The Show: Home Run Derby and Magic 2014 Duels of the Planeswalkers, Spartacus Legends and indie titles Motorbike and Pool Nation round out the PlayStation 3 offerings.
Let’s get to the news you’ve all been waiting for first – Hotline Miami will launch for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on June 25th! The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game, and we couldn’t be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.
The teams at Dennaton Games and Devolver Digital are thrilled to announce that the pixilated brutality and neon hyper-violence of Hotline Miami will be testing the will of gamers on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita this spring. Through unknown black magic and dark arts, our friends at Abstraction Games are crafting an absolutely perfect version of Hotline Miami for both PlayStation 3 and PS Vita and are taking great care to take advantage of both systems nifty features.
For those unfamiliar with Hotline Miami, it’s the debut commercial effort of prolific indie developer Jonatan Söderstrom and artist/designer Dennis Wedin. Hotline Miami almost immediately garnered praise from both gamers and press for its distinct visual presentation, driving soundtrack, breakneck action, and schizophrenic narrative that leaves players with more questions than answers.
