Hmm.

PS Minis game Velocity isn't getting a sequel just yet. The announcement teased in December has turned out to be for Velocity Ultra, a native PS Vita version - an HD rework - of the PS Minis game.

A sequel isn't off the table, though: a questionnaire has been sent out asking people what they'd like from a second game. Presumably Velocity 2 is the next project in the pipeline.

FuturLab described Velocity Ultra on the PlayStation Blog as the Director's Cut of the game. All the art is being reworked to "a much higher standard" and changing from a pixelated style to cartoon.

Graphics are being beefed up, visual effects added and the more powerful Vita can run all that at 60 frames-per-second.

Velocity Ultra is being submitted to Sony in April, so FuturLab's estimating a May release. That's a guess.

Velocity is a very fine puzzle-orientated scrolling shooter. "Velocity looks like a blast from the past and plays like anything but; it's some sort of triumph of substance over style," declared Eurogamer's reviewer Rich Stanton.
