Draw Slasher is coming to PlayStation Vita, its developer has announced.

The gory cartoon-style ninja slicing game launches on the PlayStation Store in Europe on 24th April and in the US on 23rd April.

Draw Slasher was made by Polish indie developer Mass Creation. The first Draw Slasher, subtitled The Quest, launched in 2011 on touch devices as a spin-off from 2009's Dark Ninja vs Pirate Monkey Zombies! A black and white version called Draw Slasher Origins launched in 2012.

In the game you play a ninja called Hanzo who runs around slicing up zombies. You draw a line to jump, dash, dodge and slash, and pinch the screen to use Ninjutsu Techniques.

There's a story, hardcore challenges and, within the Arcade mode, two sub-modes: Survival, which tracks your kill count, and Gatekeeper, which tasks the player with preventing the zombies from entering Hanzo's village.

"It quickly became clear that the Vita version was too small, so we decided to extend it with new locations, enemies and bosses, doubling the amount of content compared to the original," producer Artur Gosk told our friends at Eurogamer Poland.

"Then there are new mini-games and modes adapted to the Vita. Along the way, we changed the mechanics. In some cases we turned it upside down. The game remained close to the original idea, but very different at the same time. That's why we decided to call it simply Draw Slasher."
