The rhythm-based dungeon-crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer comes to Sony platforms in early February.
From developer Brace Yourself Games, Crypt of the NecroDancer launched for PC/Mac/Linux in April 2015. At its core, the game functions as a “roguelike” dungeon-crawler, featuring procedurally-generated floors packed with secret rooms and items. Crypt of the NecroDancer is often noted online for its fantastic soundtrack, doubling as a key gameplay component, as the player can only move in sync with the music; as depicted by a beat-tracking heart meter at the bottom of the screen, the player will die if too many beats are missed. If the player-character Cadence dies from either monsters or from too many missed beats, the player is sent back to the main lobby, where he or she can purchase new items or unlock additional challenge modes and stages.
Last week, Brace Yourself Games announced that Crypt of the NecroDancer would officially release for Sony platforms in early February- roughly two weeks from now. Both the PS4 and PS Vita versions will include additional music from musician and composer Jake “Virt” Kaufman, Trophy support and Daily Challenges. Akin to the PC version, the PS4 release will also support using a dance pad for an alternate controller.
Crypt of the NecroDancer will release on 2/2 as a Cross-Buy title for PS4 and PS Vita.
