In a blog post released today, Roll 7 has announced that the Vita port of Not a Hero has been cancelled.

While this is bad news, Roll 7 has tried to announce it as humorously as possible with an over-the-top story about wildfire and floppy disks.

"We tried simply copying the whole game onto a 3.5" floppy disk and jamming it into the back of the Vita" Roll 7 say.

"This caused dangerous overheating and one of our test kits exploded, killing the entire NOT A HERO Vita Programming team in a fully upsetting and totally avoidable fireball of nasty burning."

In conclusion

Roll 7 conclude "It was at this juncture our lawyers advised us to abandon the port and come up with an elaborate excuse for its cancellation."

While we doubt any of this is actually true - though we haven't confirmed with our sources either way - it does help soften the bad news blow just a little bit.

Not a Hero is still scheduled to release on PS4 on February 2nd, though. While it won't be native, at least you can sort of play it on Vita via Remote Play, right?
