announced today that Don't Starve: Giant Edition is coming to PS Vita on September 2nd, 2014.
Below are the details, to quote: Hey everyone! Jamie Cheng here, founder of Klei Entertainment. I'm happy to announce a few cool things: first is that Don't Starve: Giant Edition is coming to PS Vita on September 2nd!
Here are some key details you'll want to know:
• The Giant Edition costs $14.99, and includes the Reign of Giants expansion. This expansion is usually $4.99, and we've bundled it in for everyone. It includes new characters, seasons, biomes, and other challenges that will happily kill you.
• Unfortunately, in order for us to get the game on Vita, we had to rewrite a bunch of backend code to optimize it. Because of this, the save games are not compatible with PS4, so there is no cross play.
• BUT! We love you all, so we're making the game cross buy! If you own Don't Starve on PS4, you get the Vita version for free, and vice versa. Thank you for supporting our game, and please spread the word so we can keep making more interesting games!
In case you missed it from our previous post, here are the key features of the Reign of Giants expansion that is included in this package:
