Amanita Design’s enjoyable indie hit Machinarium is set to puzzle the PlayStation Vita later this month. Company founder Jakub Dvorský took to the PlayStation Blog earlier today to confirm the news, where he also shared a handful of tidbits about the port and its various improvements over last year’s PlayStation 3 version.
“You can now control the game not only with the system’s analog sticks and buttons, but also directly with your fingers on the touch screen and rear touch panel,” he beamed. “We’ve improved the zoom feature too, so it’s more convenient to play the game in a portable capacity.” The studio’s also implemented PSN leaderboards to allow you to compare your playtime with friends.
The game will bend your brain on 26th March in North America. There’s no word on a European release just yet, but news is incoming soon according to blog manager Fred Dutton. “We’ll be announcing a European date very shortly,” he revealed. Consider our interest well and truly piqued.
Okay, he's convinced me, I'll buy it again, once I get a 32gb card, and that depends on when Sony will drop their card price. I've been holding off on all PSN Vita purchases. $100 for 32gb card? I bought a Lexis 32 stick for $15!
Back to Machinarium, I had a wonderful experience with this game on PC, and bought it on PS3(haven't got around to playing it yet though). It's just one of a handful of games I really don't mind buying multiple times. If I had a Blackberry Playbook, I'd buy it on that, if I had an iPad I'd buy that version too. Would have bought the Wiiware version. So eventually I'll buy the PSV version.
@ThreadShadow I've got this one on PS3, too, but haven't got around to playing it yet. I love the art style, though, so I'm looking forward to dipping into it soon.
I really wanted to buy this game but intentionally held off when I heard there was a Vita version in the works. It really seemed to me that Vita would be perfect for this game, and I'm glad it happened so fast.
@Squiggle55 I most definitely agree. Although I haven't played the PS3 version of the game, I will pick this one up for the vita!
Awesome, I've heard great things about the game and was tempted to get it on PS3 but decided to wait for the Vita version because it seems like a better fit for that system. I'll be sure to buy a PSN card so I can get this the day it's available.
Already completed it on the PS3 so won't be getting it myself. Strongly recommend it to anyone and everyone though, it's a charming little game. Sure you can breeze through it in a few hours but you'll come back again and again, sort of like Luigi's Mansion and the old Sonic games.
Finished some time ago, it's a nice experience, maybe a little short.
