Developed by Cellar Door Games, and brought to PlayStation by Abstraction Games, Rogue Legacy has been given a release date of July 29 in North America and July 30 in Europe. Available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita, Rogue Legacy supports both cross-buy and cross-saves.
For those of you who have never heard of Rogue Legacy before, here’s the intriguing description:
It’s a rogue-lite game where you must conquer a magical castle which is constantly changing. Every time you die, your children succeed you. Each child has his or her own unique genetic traits, so one child might be a near sighted wizard, and another could be a flatulent ninja. So every play through is unique, right from the get-go.
As an added bonus, all the money you earn is passed down to your children, giving each generation a leg up on the last. And you’ll need every edge you can get, because this game is hard!
Included in Rogue Legacy on PlayStation will be a platinum trophy, multiple languages (English, Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Polish, Russian, and Spanish), every single feature in the PC version, all of the content patches (includes extra Bonus zones, traits, and boss remixes), and the game was originally made with the PS Vita buttons in mind, so “that means the Vita version plays perfectly!”
