Hotline Miami Hits PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday With PS-Exclusive Mask

Nigel Lowrie's Avatar Posted by Devolver Digital

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 PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend: Russell the raging bull.

Hotline Miami on PS3 and PS Vita

Russell is hidden early in the game, and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It’s a really neat effect, and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look.

There are also a bunch of new upgrades, like leaderboards for each level of the game, Trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting in the PS Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross-Buy title on PlayStation Network, so you can buy it for PS3 and PS Vita with a single purchase!

Thanks again for all the support. Follow @HotlineMiami on Twitter for more news and fun from now through launch!

I see that it’s cross-buy, but is it cross-save? Can I take my progress from the PS3 version and continue on the Vita?

@3 / UncannySilk … It’s funny, the violence isn’t what attracts me to this game. At it’s core, the game is basically a twitch puzzle game where each puzzle has multiple solutions. And the music… the music is so good.

Good thing that it’s cross-buy! I really want to play this game on the go, but I don’t have a Vita, so I’ll just play it on PS3 for now (even if I already finished it on Steam)

aro52 said:

Yes! This is gonna be all up in my Vita.


June 21st, 8:37 am

I am excited for this game to come out. I played it at E3, and it was really hard. Anyways, since this is coming out, will the squeal be released for the PS3 and the Vita? It will only make sense, but haven’t heard anything yet. Maybe one can shed some light on this here….

Oh I wasn’t aware that the game is an old school style shooter. Reminds me of True Lies, a game that I enjoyed a lot. Might get it.

Is it two separate trophy sets or one shared. Can we double up on trophies through cross save?

Whats the price?

    No demo, but check out the countless video previews and reviews out there and you should be able to see if it’s for you or not! :)

“Russell the Bull Only Sees Red” . . . been waiting on this release. Extremely glad to see it’s finally here!

Pikmologist said:

About time! I skipped this game on PC hoping it would come to PS3 and Vita!

Bloodios said:

June 21st, 10:45 am

Just a few curious questions:
Will the game be running at 60 frames per second? If so, does it apply for both versions?
Is the PS3 version going to be running at native 1080p?

How’s the PS3/Vita version coming along for Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number?

RR99i said:

June 21st, 11:33 am

Very excited! I’m glad you guys chose to bring Hotline Miami to the PlayStation platforms. Trying to avoid PC gaming as much as possible, prefer console/handheld gaming. Will enjoy playing on both my PS3 and Vita. Last, expect a day one purchase from me. :) Thanks again!
