Joe Danger and its sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, are coming to PlayStation Vita next year, developer Hello Games announced today.
“One of the reasons we’ve fallen in love with PS Vita is its power,” Hello Games managing director Sean Murray wrote in a post on the PlayStation Blog. “It’s super, super important to us that our games run really smoothly. Like, 60 FPS smoothly. There’s nothing like the super-slick movement and sense of responsiveness of a really well-made game. That screen just looks so lovely showing colorful, vibrant games too.”
Hello Games’ side-scrolling racing platformer first debuted on PSN June 8, 2010. It was later ported to XBLA December 2011, iOS and Android devices early 2013, and Windows this past June.
“Another big reason why Vita’s perfect for Joe Danger is in its controls,” Murray added. “On PS3, Joe Danger uses pretty much every button, stick, and trigger for something, so all Vita’s inputs—from its touchscreens to its dual analog sticks—are essential. We’re aiming for Joe on Vita to play at least as well as it does on PS3! We’ve got some surprises in store for our level editor, too.”
Bot Joe Danger titles will launch on PlayStation Vita sometime 2014.
