43w ago - Double Eleven Limited Chief Operating Officer Mark South announced today that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to PS Vita.

Below are the details, to quote: Double Eleven, Ltd been entrusted with the keys to the kingdom for classic series such as LittleBigPlanet and Limbo.

For us, PixelJunk Monsters sits alongside those hallowed classics. In designing PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD for PS Vita, we wanted to take the fabulous PixelJunk Monsters Deluxe and make it an even better experience.

We worked closely with Q-Games to get it right, and then chose the name "Ultimate HD" at the end of development. We hope that's what we have created!

We've been big fans of Monsters and the other PixelJunk games for some time; the sharp, colorful graphics and addictive gameplay had us hooked. Monsters is one of those games that is super casual, but incredibly difficult at the same time: a quality which made us - and many others - keep coming back for more.

The tower defense premise is very familiar, but Monsters' effortless execution sets it apart from other games in the genre. We realized that if Monsters were remade today, it would still stand out amongst other games in the genre.

So we set out to make the definitive version of PixelJunk Monsters...

That means every headshot, NULL Cannon hack, dropship takedown - everything you do on the battlefield - will get you twice as close to your goal of galactic dominance.

Whether you're working toward building the ultimate tank commander, striving to become a megacorporation CEO or simply trying to piece together your own unique hybrid warrior class, every single Skill Point helps.

If you're already playing the beta, you won't want to miss the DUST 514 Double Skill Point Weekend. Our latest build, Codex, introduced new environments, weapons, avatars, equipment and a lot more. And if you haven't given the beta a shot yet, now is the perfect time to step onto into New Eden.
