Color Guardians Paints Its Way to the PS4 & PS Vita in April 2015

February 26, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

An “action side-scrolling game” from Fair Play Labs, Color Guardians has been given a release date of April 14 in North America on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita (no word on Europe). A price wasn’t revealed today, though the game will include cross-buy.

Playing as three Guardians – Rod, Lia, and Grock – you race through their worlds to restore the stolen color. Fair Play Labs’ Claudio Pinto added:

It might look at first like a regular side-scrolling action game, but there’s a couple of twists to the gameplay: not only do you have to dodge and jump incoming hazards, but you have to switch between three lanes while doing so, hopping in and out of the background and foreground. If that weren’t tricky enough, you ALSO have to switch your own color on the fly to match yourself with pick-ups and objects in the world. People who tried it at PlayStation Experience described it as being an “Ikaruga-style” game, which is a pretty fair (and flattering) comparison.

Color Guardians also includes over 70 levels and a Platinum Trophy.
