Dust off your Vitas, ScourgeBringer heads to the handheld and PS4 next month

A shocking but sweet surprise to all you Vita owners out there: Today, Flying Oak Games and Dead Villagers announced that they will release ScourgeBringer for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on April 22, with a limited physical run coming in the near future.

Developer Flying Oak Games and publisher Dear Villagers (Recompile) just announced that after unprecedented demand the hit rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer will be launching on PS Vita alongside a newly announced PS4 version digitally on 22nd April.

ScourgeBringer is a fast-paced rogue-platformer ScourgeBringer that was released on Steam, Nintendo Switch and PC to critical acclaim in late 2020. It aims to channel the mystery and rawness of an early rogue-platformer, with fluid control, aerial combat, pixel graphics and a punchy soundtrack. The story follows hero Kyhra, who is sent away to uncover the secrets of an Eldritch monolith which is threatening to destroy her world. Armed with her trusty combat drone, she must shoot and slash her way through the infinite depths of an ever-changing dungeon, where gigantic bosses, ancient machines, strange ghosts and untold secrets from previous explorers await. There is no backtracking, as the game’s structure follows a procedural combination of pre-built challenge rooms, not unlike the Binding of Isaac.

A physical PS Vita version will be published by eastasiasoft and will launch in the near future. A physical PS4 version will launch on April 22nd, and will be available as a stunning boxed collector’s edition (limited to 500 copies) as well as a standard boxed PS4 edition.
