Rogue Legacy PlayStation release date announced

Features Cross-Buy between PS4, PS3 and Vita.

Critically acclaimed platforming action roguelike Rogue Legacy is coming to PS4, PS3 and Vita on 30th July in Europe, developer Cellar Door Games has announced.

North Americans will receive it a day earlier, on a Tuesday, because that's how they roll.

The PlayStation port of last year's PC, Mac and Linux release will feature Cross-Buy and Cross-Save compatibility between all three of Sony's contemporary platforms, so you only need to buy it once to play and migrate your progress between the various platforms.

The console port was handled by Abstraction Games, who worked on the PlayStation adaptation of Hotline Miami. This version of Rogue Legacy will feature all of the content from the Steam release, only with a tiny bit more. "But only a tiny bit," the developer noted on the PlayStation Blog.

"When we originally made Rogue Legacy, we made it with the PS Vita buttons in mind. No joke," said Cellar Door game designer Teddy Lee. "That crazy gamble we made over a year ago paid off, and that means the Vita version plays perfectly!"

Our Chris Donlan was a fan of Rogue Legacy upon its Steam release last July. "Canny enough to keep you hooked, but sufficiently honest to throw in something a little more nourishing too, the genetics are pretty strong with this one," he stated in his Rogue Legacy review.
