Limbo coming to PS Vita - Report

Playdead's 2010 side-scrolling game supposedly coming to Sony's latest portable.

38 Comments

Playdead's black-and-white side-scroller Limbo is coming to the PlayStation Vita, according to a new IGN report. The game was originally released in July 2010 on Xbox Live to a warm critical reception before later launching on PlayStation Network, PC, and Mac.

No Caption Provided

In addition to Limbo, Sony recently confirmed that Telltale's well-received The Walking Dead series is coming to the PS Vita.

In November 2011, Playdead revealed that Limbo had sold 1 million units across the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Limbo puts players in the shoes of a small child who must find his way through a black-and-white world, filled with puzzles and dangerous, often deadly, obstacles. The game won critical acclaim upon release, which was followed by a small avalanche of award nominations that yielded multiple Interactive Achievement Awards and a Game Developers Choice Award.

@JVR_Solid_basic It's not Sony pushing Limbo on the vita, its the developers. How could you say that Limbo is a XBL game, when its on pretty much every system out at the moment?

If you follow any Vita news, you must have heard that Indie developers are loving/falling in love with the vita. Hence why we have been seeing a lot more Indie games being announced for the handheld

@queuing_for_PS4 @fedetaco I got the plus service, then I had to buy a 16 gigs memory, I've played little big planet(vita version no psp) most wanted, uncharted (plus) Ninja Gaiden, little deviants, Assassins Creed, but still we would like to see a new heavy hitter. Something I don't like is the cross play service that does not work with all games yet...

The Vita itself is actually a really good device. It doesn't have a lot of good game support yet, and that is sad, but the device itself is really impressive.


I hope more developers realize it's potential and try and support it.

And here I was expecting Devil May Cry, God of War or MG Revengeance (sans the cutting) ports. Silly me...think small.

It just seems to me that the Vita isn't getting enough original games, or enough games that really sell the system.

Now lets hope they make it cross-play, and free for everyone who already bought it for PS3.

PS VITA is the greatest handheld ever and it deserves great games but why to release game that everyone have already played, maybe they throw some extras I hope...need to wait and see I guess.

I'm very excited about the change that more and more indie games are making its way to vita. I think Vita is a perfect handheld for indie games. I also would like to see Mark of the Ninja, Renegade Ops and Kill Team on Vita. That would be awesome!

@Blowing_for_Ps4 @tourdefist The Vita has been out for over a year now and there barely seems to be anything on the horizon for the system. Killzone is the only game coming out that I'm moderately excited for.

@Blowing_for_Ps4 @tourdefist I hope so! Don't get me wrong I love the Vita, I just wish I had more stuff to play on it. I pretty much use it to watch Cheers on Netflix every night before I go to bed. I'm pretty sure that's not what Sony envisioned when they made the system.

Vita is starving, STARVING, for great games like this one. Heck, not even Angry Birds make it to Vita and they are pretty much everywhere.

Hmm I wonder if this will be released on Nintendo eShop. Wait, the only stories about these types of games are what Nintendo is "not" getting. Oh well, fingers crossed for Wii U owners.

Wow, it took that long? Is there anyone who hasn't played this game and beat it yet? I've beaten it like 3 times. I'm actually ready to remove it from my HDD now.

@cycledance I'll be getting it. I never played it and it looks like it'll be an incredible handheld game.

@cycledance I never played it, and I don't have PS3/360. The world is big pal, there's many people in it.

@cycledance Not everyone who owns a Vita owns a PS3. I got a Vita last year and never owned the PS3, though I ended up buying one earlier this year.

But, whatever.

I suppose it would work well for a hand held but it's a very short game and has no replay value.
