Earlier today, when the September PS+ lineup was announced on the PlayStation Blog, Super Time Force Ultra was only listed for PS4. Naturally, my heart sank.
Super Time Force Ultra, or STFU, is yet another of Capybara Games' critically-acclaimed titles (they made Critter Crunch, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and the upcoming Xbox One adventure Below), which sees you blasting your way you (gorgeous) 2D levels. When you die, you go back in time and begin playing as a new character who fights alongside the previous, doomed hero - who does exactly what you did, when you played and died - and so on and so on until there are a half-dozen "yous" blasting the crap out of baddies and bosses together. Sort of like single-player co-op.
The PlayStation version brings in three new characters - Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, Sir Galahad from The Order: 1886 and the nameless traveler from Journey - but those are just kinda' perks. This is one of those games I was super-pleased to hear was coming to Vita.
Well, thank goodness, they've updated the post. Super Time Force Ultra comes to PS4 and Vita on September 1st, and there are some other games in the PS+ lineup too. While Mutant Mudds Deluxe didn't exaclty blow my skirt up - I'll give Xeodrifters from the same developer a shot. I mean, free's an appealing price point. Additionally, Grow Home (PS4) certainly looks like a must-play.
When was the last time I was kinda' hyped for a Ubisoft game? September 2013, that's when. And look how that turned out.
