The PlayStation Vita version of Limbo will be released June 4 in North America for $14.99, and June 5 in the U.K. and Europe for £9.99 and €12.99, respectively, co-developer Playdead announced today.
It is the same price at which the original Xbox Live Arcade version was released in 2010, as well as the PlayStation 3 version from 2011. Playdead worked with PS Vita specialist Double Eleven, the studio behind LittleBigPlanet PS Vita, for this new port.
In Limbo, you are a young boy who wakes up in the forest and undertakes a perilous journey to find his sister. It's a challenging puzzle-platformer featuring gruesome death animations and an oppressive atmosphere.
"Happy dying," said Dino Patti, CEO and co-founder of Playdead, on the PlayStation Blog.
Limbo is also available on Windows PC and Mac, both digitally and at retail. Sony Computer Entertainment announced the PS Vita version of Limbo during the 2013 Game Developers Conference, and Patti confirmed that the port doesn't feature touch controls.
