17-BIT has announced that it's had to stop working on the PlayStation Vita version of its gorgeous, cel-shaded roguelike shooter Galak-Z.

Writing on its Twitter account, 17-BIT said, "Vita faithful: heart-breaking technical limitations force us to put #galakz Vita on ice. Can't compromise beautiful & responsive gameplay."

It looks like we won't be able to get to check out this shooter out on our small screens, then. A shame, as it's such a visually appealing game.

The only way you'll be able to play it now is if you own a PlayStation 4 or have a way to play it on PC when it comes out later this year.
