Cave Story dev's platformer Kero Blaster is coming to PS4 next week

It's raining cats and frogs.

Cave Story creator Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya's retro platformer Kero Blaster is coming to PS4 on 11th April.

While Kero Blaster originally launched way back in 2014 on PC and iOS, this PS4 release will mark its console debut.

This PS4 rendition of Kero Blaster will feature the game's unlockable extra hard difficulty, Zangyou Mode, which was only patched into the iOS and PC versions after launch.

Kero Blaster sees players assume the role of a bipedal frog in charge of cleaning teleporters at the adorably named Cat & Frog company. It's a more linear affair than Cave Story, with a series of levels tasking players with simply venturing to the right, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Eurogamer contributor Simon Parkin really liked it. "Amaya's singular vision is beguiling and, while this game is a more straightforward proposition than the enchanting crisscross complexity of Cave Story, it's no less delightful," he wrote in his glowing Kero Blaster review.
