Rogue Legacy Coming July 29th to PS4, PS3, PS Vita

Rogue Legacy on PS4, PS3, PS Vita

What’s up guys! We’re crazy proud to announce that the official release date for Rogue Legacy on ALL Playstation platforms will be July 29th, 2014! That’s only 3 weeks away! That’s complete insanity, and we’re totes mcgoats excited to finally bring it to consoles and handhelds.

Now, before I go into a list of the awesomeness that is the Playstation versions of Rogue Legacy, I just want to give a shout out to the guys at Abstraction Games. They did almost all of the work on bringing the game to PlayStation, and this would never have happened without them. So big ups to them for all their help!

For those that don’t know, I should probably explain to you guys what Rogue Legacy is. It’s a rogue-lite game where you must conquer a magical castle which is constantly changing. Every time you die, your children succeed you. Each child has his or her own unique genetic traits, so one child might be a near sighted wizard, and another could be a flatulent ninja. So every play through is unique, right from the get-go.

As an added bonus, all the money you earn is passed down to your children, giving each generation a leg up on the last. And you’ll need every edge you can get, because this game is hard!

Anyways, before this gets too long, let me list out why the Playstation versions are awesome.

  1. Cross Buy! — Do you want the awesome portable-ness of Vita? Or do you want the epic big screen experience of PS4/PS3? Don’t worry, you won’t have to make that choice because we’ll just give it all to you!
  2. Cross Save! — Going out? Play on the Vita, and when you get home, your save will be brought over to your PS4/PS3 via cloud magic!
  3. 101% Content! — Every single feature in the PC version, including all of the content patches, has been faithfully brought over to the Playstation versions. So you get all the extra Bonus zones, traits, and boss remixes jam packed into those sweet little bytes, along with just a little bit more. But only just a little.
  4. Multi-lingual! — Rogue Legacy’s been translated into a whole BUNCH of languages for you guys. We’ve got English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Polish, Russian, and Spanish. :D
  5. PS Vita Control Scheme Bliss! — When we originally made Rogue Legacy, we made it with the PS Vita buttons in mind. No joke. We gambled that if it did well, we wouldn’t want the Vita version being nerfed in the control department, so we made sure to not use too many buttons. That crazy gamble we made over a year ago paid off, and that means the Vita version plays perfectly! Happiness!
  6. Platinum Trophy! — Aw yiss! Platinum awesome-ness! Thanks, PlayStation!

Anyhoo, enough talk. We’re crazy excited to be bringing Rogue Legacy to all of the Playstation platforms, and we hope you guys enjoy it, too!

    Oh yeah. There’s an achievement that’s in the Sony version which is SO hard to get, but a lot of fun. Especially if you’re a veteran of the game.

Excellent news – I’ll be there on Day 1.

Been waiting on this! Can you tell us the price? Also nice to see you’re one of the few PSN games getting a Platinum.

Skywarrd said:

July 9th, 9:08 am

It’s been a long time coming, but now I will own this game. Cross-Buy and Cross-Save is the icing on the cake.

    Big thanks to Abstraction for this! Rogue Legacy was written in C# and they had to do massive work in order to get it working on every Sony platform. It runs PERFECTLY on the PSV.

CrimsonNemo said:

July 9th, 9:08 am

Awesome, I’m looking forward to playing this on my Vita and PS4

frdjck108 said:

July 9th, 9:09 am

Yeah! for cross-buy and cross-save.

Thermopyle2 said:

July 9th, 9:09 am

What’s the price? Also is it a single trophy list, or one per platform?

    The trophies are similar across platforms. But I don’t think they all pull from the same trophy list…
    Buy 1 get 3 platinums!

Oh baby.

Garbage943 said:

July 9th, 9:12 am

I love you guys! Been wanting this on PSN ever since I played the PC version. So happy there is a platinum as well :)

FearMonkey said:

“It’s a rogue-lite game”.

Quick question: did you mean “rogue-like”? :p

And a platinum trophy seals the deal for me. Might not get it day 1 because I may not have much money to spend on games after Comic-Con, but I’ll get it for sure at some point. :)

    We meant rogue-LITE because we don’t adhere to all of the standard conventions of a rogue-like.

    For example, there’s a manor in our game. So when you die, all the money you found can be used to upgrade the manor which gives future children permanent stat upgrades on their next run.

    The game is still very skill based, but our leveling system lets people who aren’t super great at platformers still beat the game with a bit of grinding.

Loved this game on PC, but fell away from it as gaming on my laptop became very inconvenient.

Thank you for including Cross-Save. I was stoked to play this on Vita, and will be even more stoked that I can choose between PS4 and Vita.

dodgedoors said:

July 9th, 9:14 am

I am guessing this will be part of the summer play 14 sale? hopefully

So close to having the prefect post, then you go and don’t mention the price. :(

    Hey-o, sorry we can’t announce the price right now. BUT, it will be close to the PC version.

Is Rogue Legacy currently a PlayStation console exclusive?

mpmarsee said:

July 9th, 9:23 am

Couldn’t be more excited about this! Awesome!

Ricen-Beans said:

July 9th, 9:26 am

Finally! Day one!

Now where’s Velocity 2x?

Firelogic said:

July 9th, 9:27 am

Awesome news! The only drawback is that I have to wait another 3 weeks!

OneSmartBlackBoy said:

July 9th, 9:27 am

That feel when you see a cool game and go, “That’d be cool to have on my Vita.”



Looks like Rogue Legacy is $14.99 on PC. Similar caliber games like Rainbow Moon and 1001 Spikes are $14.99 on PSN too, so I’d imagine this game to be in that neighborhood as well.

Loved the PC version, glad to finally see a release date. What I wasn`t expecting was Cross Buy and Saves, now that`s a treat.
Will definitely enjoy playing this on the go!

HippeusOmega said:

July 9th, 9:32 am

Man it seems like after the 29th I won’t be on my PS3 as much. With Last of Us Remastered, Diablo 3 UEE, and this game. Glad to see the option for cross-buy and cross-save. Keep up the good work Sony.

MapleStory said:

July 9th, 9:33 am

Seriously, you guys are AWESOME for this. The Vita and even the PS4/PS3 can use more rogue-likes, this will absolutely be a day 1 purchase. Is there any other extra content that we can look forward to down the line?

    Teddy Lee said:

    July 9th, 10:17 am

    There’s no day 1 dlc. Or day 1 million. We decided to just put it all into the game.

S1lentSurviv0r said:

July 9th, 9:37 am

My body is ready. Getting this on the vita since I have it on PC for stationary playing. YEAH!

Macello said:

I don’t even know if I’ll love the game but your post is so awesome that I will support you.

Figboy said:

Woo hoo! FINALLY! I think I pestered the attendant at E3 for a release date, and got a nebulous, “soon!” Very excited about this. I’m addicted to this game on Steam, but have held off playing it for the Vita version. I can’t wait!

Have it on PC , will Def. Buy it again for PS4/Vita, such a great game!

pkmaximum said:

July 9th, 10:04 am

So exciting! Already purchased this game on Steam, however I would much rather have it on the Playstation Vita. Thank you so much for this amazing game!

I know it is contrary to the concept of the game-genre, but some kind of co-op multiplayer component would add so much more value to this game.

Ricen-Beans said:

July 9th, 10:06 am

So native res on vita? 60fps on vita?

    Teddy Lee said:

    July 9th, 10:33 am

    Yup to both!

I played this a sh**ton on PC at lunch at work… Cross buy, cross save you say? Well, looks like I’m going to buy this again to play on my couch at home. Awesome!

I only learned of this game during the e3 Sony conference. And my interest was piqued after reading some IGN articles on the game. I am looking very forward to buying it day 1 and playing. I spend a ton of time last week asking around to see if I could find out a psn release date. I’m pretty excited to see the release date on the blog today.

cowmamba said:

July 9th, 10:42 am

Oooh YUS!!!! I’ve been following this game for a fair bit! My Vita is ready!!!

xClayMeow said:

July 9th, 10:47 am

I don’t double-dip, so when I heard this was coming to Vita, I held off on getting the Steam version, which was extremely difficult to do during the Summer Sale. I love platformers on the Vita and I love Roguelikes, so really looking forward to it!

Hope there’s a PS+ discount though. It’ll be hard to justify paying $15 when I could have gotten it for $3.74 on Steam – and no, cross-buy doesn’t add value for me because all I have is a Vita.

Elementalstorm23 said:

July 9th, 10:59 am

Outstanding! This is one of the main reasons I love my VITA we need more cross buy games like this! On the 29th I’ll be playing this and The Last of Us I cannot wait!

Very excited for this. I don’t typically do PC gaming, so I have been anxiously awaiting this since announcement it was coming to these platforms. I will be on a cruise in August, so this will be coming with me!

    Be careful not to throw your VITA off the boat if you rage!

Tyrannikos said:

July 9th, 11:10 am


I was about to buy this last year for my crappy PC, but heard it was coming to Sony systems, so I held off. It was a long wait. I am SO excited to play it on my Vita until I get my PS4 in September!

    Teddy Lee said:

    July 9th, 11:27 am

    Nice! Glad you held off. Rogue Legacy isn’t the same game at lower frame rates. That’s why it was important for us that the VITA version run at 60fps.

IIL0YDII said:

July 9th, 11:13 am

Day 1, thanks for your Vita love.

HobanKnight said:

I’m all for this, but anyone know if we’ll ever see a Rogue GALAXY remaster?
