Upgraded ports of Dakko Dakko’s popular PlayStation Minis titles Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims and The Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character are set to spruce up the PlayStation Vita later this summer. Cleverly dubbed Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims in HD! and The HD Adventures of Rotating Octopus Character, the titles will be completely overhauled, and will take full advantage of their parent platform’s expanded capabilities.

Both games will boast “pin-sharp visuals in combination with re-mastered chiptune soundtracks”. Trophy addicts will be delighted to learn that the re-releases will also feature a fresh set of digital trinkets, while Rotating Octopus Character will add online leaderboards to its Challenge Mode. Elsewhere, Floating Cloud God will utilise the handheld’s rear touchpad to provide “more scope for skilful play”.

"We're really happy to be bringing these games to Vita,” said producer Dan Croucher. “The redrawn and re-mastered graphics for both games look amazing on the bigger screen, and the music sounds better than ever.”

We awarded Floating Cloud God Saves the Pilgrims an impressive 8/10 in our review last year. Did you play the originals? Are you looking forward to the Vita ports? Let us know in the comments section below.
