Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken heading to PlayStation Vita Feb. 12

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, Ratloop Asia's chicken-filled action platformer will launch on PlayStation Netowork for PlayStation Vita Feb. 12, producer and studio head Sian Yue Tan announced.

Rocketbirds stars Hardboiled Chicken, the "original Cock of War," as he leads a rebellion against penguin oppressors. The game features 15 chapters in a single-player campaign and 10 for co-op, with "stab-action" and jetpacking varying up gameplay.

"There's something tragic about the idea of flightless birds," Tan said. "So if they did grow to man-sized proportions, and they possessed the technical know-how, I'm sure they would build jetpacks and mini helicopter packs for aerial navigation and zeppelins with big screens in order to expunge their oppressive propaganda."

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken already launched in Asia as a PS Vita bundle during Christmas, and it's available now on Steam and PlayStation 3. Those who already own the PlayStation 3 game will get a discount on the upcoming Vita version. Check out the trailer above.
