Jupiter & Mars is a sci-fi Ecco the Dolphin-style game for PlayStation VR

Planet for release next year.

What if Ecco the Dolphin had a proper story and also had some radical neon highlights. That's the pitch for Jupiter & Mars, an upcoming underwater Playstation VR game.

Revealed in today's PlayStation Experience 2017 show, Jupiter & Mars is the work of indie developer Tigertron, in partnership with Aussie outfits Tantalus Media and Wicked Witch Software.

The game sees you play as a pair of dolphins on a mission to save the world's reefs. The story is set in the future, after the fall of mankind but while our polluting influence is still being felt.

Expect it to surface in May 2018.
