Crypt of the NecroDancer, the roguelike that you play like a rhythm game, is on its way to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, developer Brace Yourself Games announced today.

Crypt of the NecroDancer launched on Linux, Mac and Windows in April, following its debut on Steam Early Access in July 2014. Its original score was composed by Danny Baranowsky. The upcoming PS4 and Vita versions — no release window confirmed at this point — will include a playable chiptune remix of Baranowsky's music done by Shovel Knight composer Jake "Virt" Kaufman.

Asked for details about the PlayStation ports, Brace Yourself said on Twitter that it "can't confirm any features yet." The PC versions can be played with a dance pad instead of a controller or keyboard. There's also no word yet on whether the studio will eventually bring Crypt of the NecroDancer to other platforms; for now, it's a PlayStation-only announcement.
