I very recently bought the rhythm game/dungeon crawler mash-up Crypt of the Necrodancer on Steam, and whilst I quickly discovered it can get surprisingly taxing trying to keep up with all the split-second decisions one tends to make playing a roguelike whilst also trying to keep up a steady beat (or else you lose your gold multiplier), I’ve enjoyed what I’ve played thus far and there’s no denying that it’s a great attempt at fusing two genres that seem fundamentally incompatible.
With this in mind, it seems like the game will be reaching a whole new audience pretty soon – developers Brace Yourself Games have announced that Crypt of the Necrodancer will be sending its funky beats and beasts over to the PlayStation 4 and Vita in collaboration with Blitworks, with the port releasing in North America and Europe on February 2. The PS4 port has a few extra features, such as Daily Challenges, Trophy support and, of course, dance pad support.
It’s great to see Crypt of the Necrodancer turning up on a handheld too, as especially considering its particularly active gameplay and procedurally generated dungeons it’s perfect for shorter playing sessions on the go.
Crypt of the Necrodancer will be available for Playstation 4 and Vita from February 2nd. The PC version can be purchased from Steam.
