Velocity Ultra, FuturLab’s popular and critically acclaimed PlayStation Vita title, will be available on Steam later this year. The PC version of the game is in the hands of conversion specialists Curve Digital, who are best known for converting PC indie games, like Thomas Was Alone, to PlayStation formats.
Velocity Ultra combines the fast pace and fluid action of traditional vertical scrolling shooters with unique teleportation-based puzzle elements. Porting it to the PC is a smart move, says managing director of Curve Studios Jason Perkins:
Vertical shooters are a genre that has traditionally been under-served on the PC – despite a huge demand for interesting, unique shooters on the platform – and Velocity is one of the best ever made.
Originally released for the PS Vita in May, Velocity Ultra will “launch” on PCs by Christmastime.
