To quote: Hello readers - exciting times! It's been pretty frantic bringing King Oddball over to PS4 from PS Vita, but we're really happy to have it as our first PS4 release.

We can't wait to see how the game is received on the big screen.

I've covered the game pretty well on Playstation.Blog in earlier posts, so I'll shed some light on the various special level sets and how they came to be.

First, a quick recap: King Oddball is a skill-based, physics puzzler, where your goal is to clear the screen of enemies with three throwable rocks. So far so ordinary, but in King Oddball, you don't get to fling the rocks any way you please.
