Trigger happy havoc

Vlambeer’s awesome 8-bit dogfight-‘em-up Luftrausers is set to soar onto the PlayStation 3 and Vita soon, publisher Devolver Digital has confirmed. The indie outfit is targeting a simultaneous release across five platforms, with the two abovementioned Sony systems set to join the pixelated party. A hard date should be with us in the coming weeks.

The title itself will see you selecting from an enormous armoury of weapons and taking down fighter planes, battleships, submarines, and rival aces in glorious two-dimensions. Alright, so it may look like a cheap and cheerful smartphone escapade, but this aerial outing has one major advantage over its unpricey peers: it actually controls well.
