Badland is getting remastered for consoles and PC

Game of the Year Edition due this spring.

Apple's 2013 iPad Game of the Year, Badland, is coming this spring to PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita, PC, Mac and Linux.

Better yet, it's getting a complete overhaul to look and play nicer than ever on the new platforms.

Dubbed Badland: Game of the Year Edition, this remastering will feature hand-painted graphics, redesigned controls to work with an analogue stick and triggers, and four times the content of the original game when it launched. This bulky product will consist of 100 single-player stages, 100 co-op levels, and 27 multiplayer maps that support up to four-player local multiplayer.
