Sackboy and Tearaway characters in Joe Danger 2 on Vita

Ports nearly finished.


Guildford studios Hello Games and Media Molecule have been chatting down the pub, and the result is Sackboy and Tearaway characters will pop up in Joe Danger 2 for PlayStation Vita.

You can play as Tearaway's Atoi and Iota and LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy in the upcoming Vita version of Joe Danger 2: The Movie, which, Hello Games said on the PlayStation Blog today, is alongside the Vita port of the first Joe Danger game nearly finished.

The Vita ports were developed by Bradford studio Four Door Lemon, run at 60 frames a second, push 400K polygons a frame and load "real fast".

Joe Danger 1 includes 84 levels as well as the Director's Cut and Laboratory stages, and 25 characters. Joe Danger 2 includes 85 levels, including 15 from the Undead Movie Pack that was DLC for the PS3 version, and 35 playable characters. Improvements Hello Games made for Joe Danger 2 have made their way into the original. Both games automatically download ghosts to race against, have trophies and online leaderboards. Meanwhile, touch controls for the menus and editor have been added.

No release date yet, but we imagine it's not far off.

Hello Games, of course, is busy making the eye-catching space adventure No Man's Sky, which stole the show at last year's VGX Awards.
