Velocity 2X release date confirmed for PS4, Vita

Coming in September, will be Cross-Save and Cross-Buy.

Indie sci-fi shooter Velocity 2X arrives in Europe for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on 3rd September.

The game is a Cross-Save and Cross-Buy title, developer Futurelab confirmed in a new post on the PlayStation blog.

2X is a sequel to the well-received Velocity Ultra, which launched for Vita and PlayStation 3 last year. The series originally started life in 2012 as Velocity, a PlayStation mini.

"Velocity looks like a blast from the past and plays like anything but; it's some sort of triumph of substance over style," Rich Stanton wrote in Eurogamer's original Velocity review. "That sounds like a good thing, and it is, but a little more of the latter wouldn't have hurt."

2X adds 60 frames per second gameplay, boss fights and more time challenges, along with improved, shinier graphics.
