Here’s the lowdown on Hotline Miami, announced on the Official Playstation Blog:

Hotline Miami will launch on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation today, priced £7.29/€8.99! The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game and we couldn’t be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.

Another thing we’re excited about is that the PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend Russell the raging bull.

Russell is hidden early on in the game and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It’s a really neat effect and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look – see the image at the top of the post.

There’s also a bunch of fun new upgrades like leaderboards for each level of the game, trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting on the PlayStation Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross Buy title on PlayStation Network so you can buy it for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita with a single purchase!

Thanks again for all the support and follow @HotlineMiami on Twitter for more news and fun from now and through launch!

 

It was also confirmed on twitter that it has a Platinum:plat  trophy – sweet! We can’t wait for this here at Punk and Lizard!
