Indie hit Fez comes to PS4 March 25, runs in 1080p/60fps
Polytron's platformer launching on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita this month.
Indie hit Fez will launch for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita on March 25, developer Polytron announced today on the PlayStation Blog. The PlayStation version was handled by port studio Blit Works (Spelunky, Sonic CD) with the support of Polytron itself and Sony's internal development team.
The PS4 version of Fez runs in 1080p at 60 frames-per-second, while the PS3 iteration runs in 720p at 60fps. Polytron producer Marie-Christine Bourdua said the PS Vita version "runs smoothly at native resolution," but did not provide any specifics.
"You wouldn't think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez's fist, but it really does look even crisper and blockier-- in a good way," Bourdua said about the PS4 version of Fez.
Pricing was not announced, but the Xbox 360 and PC versions of Fez currently sell for $10. It's also unclear if Fez is a Cross-Buy title on PlayStation.
The PlayStation versions of Fez are identical to the current iterations of the game available on PC and Xbox 360 with one notable exception. The PS4 version uses the DualShock 4's lightbar to help players with the game's unlockable 3D mode.
"DualShock 4's lightbar has been put to the task of bringing a little bit of Fez's world into your own home, and you may not need to search for that dusty pair of red/cyan glasses to experience a very late-game easter egg," Bourdua said.
"Funny story: to test the new 3DTV support, we spent a weekend running around computer shops to find a monitor that sports an integrated emitter," she added. "When we found one and started up Fez, our minds were forever expanded. I think we can see the fourth dimension now?"
Fez has sold over 1 million copies to date. The game's development was chronicled in 2012 film Indie Game: The Movie. Don't expect a sequel anytime soon, as controversial creator Fish announced last summer that Fez II was canceled. Alongside the cancellation, Fish announced that he would quit the industry altogether. His status at Polytron currently is unknown.
