- FuturLab Managing Director James Marsden
has confirmed today that Velocity is getting remade for PS Vita as Velocity Ultra with details below.
To quote: Hello again! It feels great to be back - especially now that we're able to reveal a project that so many people have asked for: a native PS Vita version of our multiple award-winning PS minis game Velocity!
It's called Velocity Ultra, and it features Trophies, online high scores and a completely overhauled visual style at native PS Vita resolution. We're reworking all the art in the game, so the cut scene stills have been recreated at a much higher standard than before.
We're also unifying the art style throughout the game by ditching pixel art in favor of the edgy cartoon style.
The dinky (and rather pathetic) Quarp Jet now looks less dinky (and rather bad-ass)
We're also adding lots of visual effects. Here's what Velocity Ultra looks like at the moment. Note that the graphics look considerably cleaner when running live on PS Vita's screen.
The dark shading at each side of the screen focuses the action whilst explosions illuminate the environment to create a more dramatic experience. The PS Vita is a lot more powerful than the PSP, so we're able to add these lighting effects whilst still running...
