Is FuturLab's Velocity Warping onto the PlayStation Vita?

Posted by Sammy Barker

You asked for it

Brighton-based developer FuturLab sure loves its quirky promotional schemes. Earlier today, the outfit issued a press release with a hidden message: “Fan powered flight”. We thought that the company was merely being cheeky, but it turns out that there’s a lot more to the developer’s tease than three little words.

A teaser website using the same secret phrase features a countdown clock – pointing towards Friday – and the quote: “You asked for it”. In the background are numerous user accounts, which have all commented on Velocity – the studio’s award winning PlayStation Mini – in the past. YouTube user G1nsunuva, for example, asked for a “full PSN sequel” on one of the title’s promotional videos.

We asked managing director James Marsden whether a full PlayStation Vita port of Velocity was on the cards, but he wasn’t willing to give much away. “All will be revealed on Friday,” he grinned.

Meanwhile, we couldn’t help but notice a fetching set of banner images over on

@Sanquine Velocity is one of (if not the) best PlayStation Mini available. The fact that it may be getting a full Vita port is, well, incredible news. Seriously, this is going to be huge.

@get2sammyb Full vita port means? Trophies? But how about the graphics? ( Gameplay is fine). I am just writing my thoughts here because a lot of people want to see games like tear away. I already convinced 20 friends to buy a vita only because of tear away ( Same goes with ps3 because of the last of us:P and beyond two souls). I think with this sort of IP's sony will be the giant they once where in the ps2 era.

@Sanquine From what the developer announced earlier, it would mean a full port with Trophies, better graphics, leaderboards, and (possibly) more.

Futhermore, i think this game is not going to convince people to buy a vita. However, your point is really valid; it is one of the best mini's i ever played and i will certainly buy this one. Hopefully they do more projects like this on the vita. I give them my money* Throws money*

PS sorry for bad grammer:)

@Sanquine Good games will always sell platforms. Velocity may not be enough to sell the PlayStation Vita on its own, but as part of a catalogue including LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted, and, as you mention, Tearaway, it should convince people to pick the platform up.

Our goal is to sell some PS Vita's!

That's our goal, whether we'll achieve it or not who knows, but we will do our best
