Not content with its recent PlayStation Mobile port, Team 17 has announced that its retro run-and-gun arcade blaster Alien Breed is coming to both the PlayStation 3 and Vita next month. The British studio – which is best known for its anthropomorphic annelids – is aiming to take advantage of various cross-platform features for the re-release, including cross-save and cross-play.

Indeed, you’ll be able to transfer your progress between systems, as well as participate in online co-op irrespective of device. New content packs will bring the total level count to 30, which you'll be able to explore using original and enhanced graphic filters. Furthermore, leaderboards will give you a reason to get obsessive over the intergalactic action all over again.

There’s no word on whether the title will support cross-buy just yet, but we have a sneaking suspicion that it will. Did we mention that Alien Breed is awesome?
