FuturLab has revealed the upcoming release of a native PlayStation Vita version of its critically acclaimed shoot-‘em-up Velocity. No release date has yet been revealed, but the studio has also hinted at a Velocity sequel in the works.
Speaking to fans of Velocity in a recent post on the official PlayStation Blog, FuturLab’s MD James Marsden introduced Velocity Ultra as a “director’s cut”; showing a completely overhauled and unified art style, visual effects and before-and-after comparison screenshots illustrating the differences between the original PS minis release and Velocity Ultra.
Being a native PlayStation Vita title, Velocity Ultra also features PlayStation Network Trophies and online leaderboards; something that fans of the original videogame had earnestly requested after playing the original.
“We couldn’t be more excited about Velocity Ultra. We’re so grateful to our fans and supporters and we’re committed to keeping our reputation nice and shiny with this native PS Vita version of Velocity. I’d also like to mention that we learned a lesson with our double-countdown clock teaser. We won’t do that again, though we will continue to tease on a regular basis…” Stated James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director.
Just in case Velocity Ultra wasn’t enough to satisfy expectations, Marsden also linked to a ‘Velocity Sequel Questionnaire,’ inviting readers to submit requests for a sequel. Completed questionnaires will be entered into a draw where ten lucky people will win a copy of Velocity Ultra. The questionnaire is available now at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/TTGZ7NS, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest from FuturLab.
