Sony ports for one of 2015's most stylish games

Downwell will land on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on May 24, according to the PlayStation Blog. The game will cost $4.99 and offer cross-buy support, creator Ojiro Fumoto wrote in a post.

PlayStation Japan teased the ports earlier this year. Downwell has been available on iOS, Android, Windows PC and Mac since last fall, after garnering acclaim at events like 2015's Game Developers Conference and PAX East.

But the game's arrival on consoles is a special achievement for Fumoto, Downwell's 20-something developer, who ported the game over with help from Red Phantom Games.

"It's still pretty unreal to me that the game is now being released on PlayStation platforms, the consoles I've been playing for a large part of my life!" Fumoto said of the upcoming PlayStation releases. "My younger self would be super proud."

Hopefully Fumoto also felt pride upon Downwell's initial release, when some went so far as to call it "the best game [they've] played in 2015."

Watch us play Downwell, which we described as "Spelunky meets Cave Story," below.
