Watch Rogue Legacy on PS4, direct from GDC

Chris Plante co-founded Polygon in 2012 and is now editor-in-chief. He co-hosts The Besties, is a board member of the Frida Cinema, and created NYU’s first games journalism course.

Rogue Legacy is scheduled to release on the Vita, which is to say Rogue Legacy is about to be playable on its ideal platform.

Much like Spelunky, I relish the opportunity to play Rogue Legacy's cyclical playthroughs whenever and wherever. Call me crazy — actually don't, I'm quite delicate — but I struggle to make time for extremely difficult games when they're tied to a console. For these games, I need breaks. I want to be somewhere comfortable. Or maybe uncomfortable. I basically want to be in bed or on the subway. Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes. And I prefer portable play.

For the demo, we're joined by Cellar Door Games' co-founders Kenny Lee and Teddy Lee, who are showing off the PS4 version. Watch as they brutally whallop Russ Frushtick and his ill fated lineage over and over and over.
