Frozen Synapse: Tactics announced for PS3 and Vita

Brings turn-based strategy, asynchronous multiplayer to Vita.

Critically-acclaimed turn-based strategy game Frozen Synapse will be coming to PS3 and Vita later this year as Frozen Synapse: Tactics, where it will be published and co-developed by LittleBigPlanet Vita developer Double Eleven.

"Frozen Synapse for us represents some of the best work coming out of the UK and onto the PC. We know there's also a great console game in there as well waiting to be realised," said Double Eleven COO Mark South. He then added, "We don't want to give too much away yet, but I will say that Frozen Synapse: Tactics is not simply a transition of the original onto console; we will be giving it a complete Double Eleven makeover."

What does that mean exactly? According to Double Eleven's official site, it will be redoing the art, though it's unclear what this new version will look like or how much it will be tampered with. Art director Demi Gounari merely stated, "our vision is to reinvent the game's aesthetics and interactivity in the same way that Mode7 reinvented strategy gaming with this title."
