'Velocity Ultra' (ALL) Also Coming To PC

Velocity Ultra is a teleportation shoot-'em-up based on the PSP Minis title, now with completely overhauled and unified art style, visual effects, and online leaderboards.

In Velocity Ultra, players take control of the world’s first quantum teleport craft, using a range of teleport controls to outsmart enemies, solve action puzzles and rescue survivors from their deep space hideaways. Velocity Ultra combines the fluid action and speed of traditional vertical shooters with a teleportation mechanic that adds a unique puzzle element to the genre.

"Bringing Velocity Ultra to the PC is a project we're really proud to be involved with," said Curve Studios managing director, Jason Perkins. "Vertical shooters are a genre that has traditionally been under-served on the PC - despite a huge demand for interesting, unique shooters on the platform - and Velocity is one of the best ever made."

Curve are working very closely with FuturLab to ensure the PC version maintains the pitch-perfect controls and sharp art style of the PlayStation original. Perkins said:  "We're not new to PC development, having released Stealth Bastard Deluxe to critical acclaim last year. We're paying special attention to the little details that make a PC version great, including fully customisable controls and excellent HD graphics running at a smooth 60 FPS."

James Marsden, Managing Director of FuturLab said: "We were honestly blown away by the reception of Velocity Ultra when we released it this year, and it's really exciting for us to be releasing the game on the PC, which is a first for our studio!”
