February 24, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Previously released on 3DS on PC, Renegade Kid (Mutant Mudds Deluxe) and Gambitious Digital Entertainment have announced that Xeodrifter is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this April in the form of Xeodrifter: Special Edition.

Here’s the description for Xeodrifter:

In Xeodrifter, players relive the intergalactic globe-trotting Metroidvania gameplay that captured the hearts of 3DS fans with cunning use of 2D gaming space and thoughtful gameplay. Console players can explore multiple worlds to rebuild their tattered spaceship and return home to their home galaxy in just a couple of short months.

With this Special Edition of the game, you’ll receive Renegade Kid’s development diary, as well as the soundtrack by artists Roth Sothy, Matthew Gambrell, and Brian Altano.

Creative Director Jools Watsham talked about this new version of Xeodrifter:

Working with the Gambitious team to bring Xeodrifter to a wider audience on PC and home console is something we’re extremely excited about. Xeodrifter: Special Edition is a great way for players to get their hands on the game, the awesome OST, and a detailed behind-the-scenes look at how a few friends managed to cobble together a great game.

There was no word on whether Xeodrifter: Special Edition would include cross-buy, though we do know it will cost $14.99.
