Cellar Door Games’ 2D platformer with roguelike elements Rogue Legacy will release on all PlayStation Platforms July 29, according to the PlayStation Blog.

Cellar Door said that the PlayStation version of the game includes “101% Content,” meaning you’ll get all the extra bonus zones, traits, and boss remixes from the PC version, and “just a little bit more,” but Cellar Door didn’t specify what.

More importantly, Vita owners will be happy to learn that the game will work well with the handheld’s control scheme. “When we originally made Rogue Legacy, we made it with the PS Vita buttons in mind. No joke,” Cellar Door’s Teddy Lee said. “We gambled that if it did well, we wouldn’t want the Vita version being nerfed in the control department, so we made sure to not use too many buttons. That crazy gamble we made over a year ago paid off, and that means the Vita version plays perfectly!”

The PlayStation version of the game comes with Sony’s Cross Buy feature, so buying the game for one platform will let you play on all of them. It also features Cross Save, so your progress is consistent across all platforms.

Currently exclusive to the PC, Cellar Door describes Rogue Legacy as a “rogue-lite.” You try to defeat a number of bosses in a magical, randomly generated castle. When you die, you play as the dead hero’s child, who has his own unique set of abilities. The money you collect passes on to the next generation, so each attempt can get easier as you buy better gear.

The game earned an 8.5 in GameSpot’s review, and made it to many GameSpot Editors’ Top 10 Games for 2013 lists, which you can find here.
