Renegade Kid's metroidvania Xeodrifter is coming to PS4 and Vita

Special Edition is now on Steam.  

Renegade Kid's sci-fi metroidvania Xeodrifter is coming to PS4 and Vita this April via a new publishing deal with Gambitious Digital Entertainment.

Renegade Kid toggles between cutesy 2D platformers and grim 3D horror games like Dementium and Moon.

Released on 3DS and PC in December, Xeodrifter merges the minimalist 2D platforming of Renegade Kid's earlier Mutant Mudds with the more ambitious open-world exploration of Metroid.

To further celebrate Xeodrifter's branching out, Gambitious just released the game's Special Edition on Steam. This adds an in-depth development diary and soundtrack by chiptune artists Roth Sothy, Matthew Gambrell and Brian Altano.

Xeodrifter: Special Edition is typically £10.99 / $14.99, but is 25 per cent off until 2nd March.

"Working with the Gambitious team to bring Xeodrifter to a wider audience on PC and home console is something were extremely excited about," said Renegade Kid co-founder and creative director, Jools Watsham. "Xeodrifter: Special Edition is a great way for players to get their hands on the game, the awesome OST, and a detailed behind-the-scenes look at how a few friends managed to cobble together a great game."
