Tip-toe puzzler Stealth Inc 2 gets Vita release date - will be Cross Buy with console edition
Curve Digital says it will rescue Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones from the shadowy nightmare of Wii U exclusivity, and bring the game to Vita (and other platforms) early next month.
The sneaky puzzler will hit the PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita on April 7th in the US and April 8th elsewhere. It will cost you £12.99 / $14.99, and it's Cross Buy so you'll get all three versions for that price.
Like the first Stealth Inc (previously Stealth Bastard), you'll be solving self-contained puzzles that force you to use the shadows to stay hidden from enemy robots and laser beams.
But now, levels are strung together in a Metroidvania-style overworld. Plus, you'll get to use new gadgets like an inflatable cuboid friend and a gizmo that hacks enemy robots.
Stealth Inc 2 also has a level editor with full level sharing. And a variety of hats. Yay hats.
If you never played the first game, you'll be able to get the Stealth Inc: Ultimate-est Edition for £13.99 / $16.99 which - for a just few pennies more - adds the original Stealth Inc and its DLC to the bundle.
We called that first game a "great indie platformer for the PS Vita, despite the niggly second half. You'll find some of the best puzzles available on the Vita in the game's tighter moments".
