Hello Games’ smash hit downloadable titles Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie will come to the PlayStation Vita next year, thanks to British indie studio Four Door Lemon.
Four Door Lemon previously helped develop New Star Soccer, along with Vita titles such as Table Football, Table Mini Golf, Table IceHockey, and Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD.
Sean Murray, founder of Hello Games, the four person studio working on the exciting No Man’s Sky, said:
Joe Danger is incredibly precious to us, and there are very few people we’d trust with our baby, Simon and his team at Four Door Lemon have a well proven track record, especially on the PlayStation platform. This is a great example of UK indie developers working together, helping each other to build something fantastic. It’s an ideal fit!
Four Door Lemon’s founder Simon Barratt added:
We’re big fans of Joe Danger and Hello Games and having the opportunity to bring our favorite daredevil to the Vita was a dream come true for us. I have been hoping Sean would ask us to bring Joe to the Vita for a long time now as the blend of classic skill-based gameplay and humor is a perfect fit for the device. We can’t wait for fans to be able to experience the Danger on the go!
Joe Danger will be released for PlayStation Vita in Q2 2014, but there’s no word on whether the games will support cross-buy for all those that already have JD on PS3. The games will include all the content from previous versions, “along with a few fresh surprises”. On top of the port, Four Door Lemon are also set to release their own new IP in 2014, but platforms or details have yet to be announced.
