A certain niche among some gamers is a 2D platformer, battler, RPG with roguelike elements. If you fall into that category and own a PlayStation 4, Vertical Drop Heroes HD will soon arrive to fill that craving. You control a hero that descends through randomly generated stages while using wits and reflexes to survive until the level’s boss battle. There are tons of skills, traits, and abilities that can be earned and create a different hero each playthrough. Expect a split-screen, local co-op mode too.
The title will drop on February 14 for North Americans and February 15th for Europeans at $6.99/€6.99 a piece. It will also be a cross buy experience for the PS4 and PS Vita. You can check out the launch trailer above.
Vertical Drop Heroes HD is a remaster of the webgame, Vertical Drop Heroes, that released on Steam back in 2014 to above average reviews. It’s created by Nerdook which is a one-man development team. Let us know what you’re looking forward to the most with this unique game in the comments below!
