UK-based publisher PQube has announced the Rabi-Ribi PS4 and Vita ports will be arriving this Summer. Both versions of the 2D sidescroller will release September 1, 2017 in Europe (currently there isn’t a North American date), and a physical copy of the PlayStation 4 version can be purchased for £29.99 at retailers.
Despite its cutesy art style, Rabi-Ribi is a hardcore action game. It was originally released for Steam on January 28, 2016, where it found a popular following. Now, it’s being brought over to consoles.
Here’s how publisher PQube describes the upcoming release:
Qube is excited to announce that we will be releasing the adorable bunny-based side-scrolling action game, Rabi-Ribi, on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Europe on September 1, 2017!
Swing your Piko Hammer for truth, justice and bunny-kind as Erina, a bunny-turned-bunny-girl in a 2D side-scrolling action game that combines the freedom of exploration, platforming and bullet-hell style combat.
After waking up in a strange place in a strange body, Erina sets out to find her way back home, but what mysterious events have placed her in this unusual situation and what hidden threats loom over her home of Rabi-Ribi island?
Explore vast levels, uncover secrets, level up, utilize over 60 items and power-ups and defeat powerful enemies on your way to becoming the defender of Rabi-Ribi island.
