Hotline Miami coming to PS3 and Vita this spring - trailer

Indie PC hit will support PlayStation Cross-Buy

Hotline Miami will be released for PS3 and Vita this spring.

The debut effort from indie studio Dennaton Games, which has sold over 300,000 copies since its PC launch last autumn, takes place in an alternative version of 1989 Miami, with players murdering their way through the seedy underworld.

Hotline Miami creator Jonatan Söderström had "been talking to Sony" about bringing the ultra-violent action game to PlayStation devices since last year, when he said he'd "would need someone to port it for us".

The PlayStation version will be handled by Dutch studio Abstraction Games under the guidance of Dennaton Games.

It will be released as a downloadable title on the PlayStation Network and support Cross-Buy, allowing gamers to play both the PS3 and Vita version with a single purchase.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe senior business development manager Shahid Ahmad said: "Our team have been fans of Hotline Miami from the very start and we are absolutely thrilled to have such a brilliant game launch on the PlayStation platform.

"The intense visuals and pulsing soundtrack are perfectly suited for PS3 and PS VIta and we can't wait for PlayStation fans to see what Hotline Miami is all about."

"The Devolver Digital team is hyped to see Hotline Miami hit PS3 and PS Vita," said Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. "However, this Cross-Buy thing might prohibit me from achieving my long-standing dream of wearing a gold plated PS Vita around my neck. Total bummer."

Söderström confirmed last November that Dennaton is planning a Hotline Miami sequel.
