Hothead Games today announced that its successful humor-filled XBLA title Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness will hit the PlayStation Network later this fall as a digital download.

"We keep getting emails asking why our Penny Arcade game is not on PSN," said Hothead's CEO, Vlad Ceraldi.

"We have always said we wanted to have our games on as many platforms as possible to give choice to gamers. All good things take time and we are very excited to be debuting our first PS3 title and look forward to bringing more games to this platform in the future."

No specific word on pricing, but Hothead says the PS3 port will be "priced in line" with the game on other platforms. Considering the XBLA edition cost 1600 Microsoft Points, expect to shell out around $20.
