Top-down shoot-em-up Dead Nation will launch for PlayStation Vita April 15, XDEV Studio Europe associate producer Rogan Ogden announced via the Playstation Blog.
In Dead Nation, players assume the role of one of two zombie apocalypse survivors searching for a cure. The PlayStation Vita edition was announced at E3 2013 and will be available for $7.99. In addition to online and ad-hoc co-op, it also includes global leaderboards.
Dead Nation, originally developed by Resogun creator Housemarque, launched for PlayStation 3 in 2010. An updated version of the game was released for PlayStation 4 last month and includes the game's original campaign mode, as well as The Road to Devastation expansion pack.
"Like the PS4 version of the game, the PS Vita version has been developed by our friends at Climax Studios, and they've faithfully recreated the classic experience of the original PS3 game," Ogden wrote. "Journey through the campaign as Jack McReady or Scarlett Blake, or replay your favorite levels and compete for top scores in the single mission mode."
The Road to Devastation DLC will also be available as a separate purchase for $3.99. The title is cross-buy, meaning those who've purchased content on other systems can pick up the Vita version for free.
