Velocity Ultra

One of the PlayStation Vita’s very best games is strapping itself up and teleporting onto the PlayStation 3. Velocity Ultra, the sublime vertical shooter from award-winning Brighton-based developer FuturLab, is set to fire onto the current generation console later this year, alongside all of the features that made the handheld version a smash hit.

Curve Studios, the team behind Stealth Inc: A Clone in the Dark and Lone Survivor: The Director's Cut, is handling the port, so you can pretty much bank on it being a perfect translation. Disappointingly, the developer’s confirmed that the re-release will share its Trophies with its portable counterpart, meaning that you won’t be able to double-dip on that delicious Platinum.

Still, this is legitimately in the running for a Game of the Year award, so we can’t wait to see it sparkle on a glossy high-definition display. The developer’s ruled out cross-buy and cross-save for the time being, so you’re going to have to stump up some cash to play this again. It’ll be worth it to hear that Joris de Man soundtrack through your beefy living room stereo system, though.
