17-Bit’s space shooter Galak-Z coming PlayStation Vita as well as PC and PS4

Developer 17-Bit’s anime-inspired 2D space shooter Galak-Z is coming to PlayStation Vita as well, the studio announced today.

First announced during Sony’s E3 2013 press conference, Galak-Z  is described by 17-Bit CEO Jake Kazdal as having the feel of a first-person shooter like Halo or Far Cry 3 but translated to a two-dimensional shooter space, wish a dash of Macross anime inspiration and Asteroids for good measure.

And in a post on the PlayStation Blog, senior producer Raj Joshi mentioned how Galak-Z also borrows from roguelikes, with Spelunky and Don’t Starve specifically mentioned for their “deep well of knowledge gained purely by watching the rules of the game grind against each other” and “the way it encourages you to set long-term goals for each play session” respectively. In that vein, Galak-Z will sport randomly-generated levels so that each experience with the space shooter is a fresh one.

Galak-Z is coming to Windows PC, PS4, and Vita later this year.
