Octodad: Dadliest Catch hits Vita on May 26, lets you get tangled up with a buddy

Octodad: Dadliest Catch, everyone's favorite game starring a fatherly cephalopod, will be released on PlayStation Vita on May 26, developer Young Horses announced today.

It's a cross-buy game, so if you already own Octodad on PlayStation 4, you'll be able to download it on Vita at no additional cost. Cross-save isn't supported, but Young Horses threw in some new trophies for the Vita version. Octodad on Vita is compatible with the PlayStation TV.

Another addition, developed with the help of Sickhead Games, is local co-op play — on a single Vita. Two players can get up close and personal with Octodad, and each other, as they take control of either side of the handheld device.

"We're excited to share this cool new way of playing Octodad and hope you enjoy it as much as we do," said Phil Tibitoski, president and co-founder at Young Horses, in a PlayStation Blog post.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch debuted on Linux, Mac and Windows PC in January 2014, and was released on PlayStation 4 in April 2014. The game is also coming to Wii U and Xbox One this summer. For more, check out our review.
