TowerFall is scheduled to release on Vita (and, by extension, PS TV) on December 15, according to the PlayStation Blog. Cross-buy support means that if you already own the PS4 version--which was a free PlayStation Plus game back in July--you're automatically entitled to the Vita version once it's available.

This also extends to the game's DLC; if you've previously purchased or plan to buy the Dark World add-on, you'll get access to it on both platforms.

And while it won't be available alongside the Vita version's launch, the plan is to add cross-save support "shortly." That will allow for your save game to move back and forth between the two versions.

TowerFall is a decidedly local multiplayer-centric game. This feature is present in the new Vita version, where it's played with an ad hoc wireless connection.
