Spelunky Update: New Features Now Live on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

100°
12w ago - Sony Lead Account Manager Nick Suttner announced news of new features now live on their Spelunky update for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: With Spelunky finally making its glorious PS4 debut last month - hopefully you were able to grab it free in PlayStation Plus while it lasted! - there are more explorers than ever plumbing the depths of the jungle, battling incensed shopkeepers, and dying in an endless cavalcade of unexpected and hilarious ways.

For those new players still feeling overwhelmed, be sure to check out my Survival Guide from last year; a few basic tips go a long way, and the experience is even more fun when you're sharing tactics and stories of your travels with friends.

Speaking of sharing, you may have noticed that the PS4 has a few killer new features, including the ability to watch full replays of anyone's Daily Challenge run straight from the leaderboards, as well as seeing where your friends died (and what killed them) in the Daily Challenge, represented by their ghost. I'm thrilled to be able to announce that those features have been added to the PS3 and PS Vita versions, available now via a free update!

Not only that, but...
 

Mossmouth Announces Spelunky is Coming to PlayStation 4 Tuesday

50°
17w ago - Mossmouth's Derek Yu announced today that Spelunky is coming to PlayStation 4 this Tuesday with details below.

To quote: Thanks to the hard work of BlitWorks and Sony, Spelunky is coming to PS4 on October 7th! I've updated most of the textures so that the game looks nice and crisp in 1080p, and you can now upload replays of your high scores to the leaderboards.

Also, there's a new feature for the Daily Challenge: friend ghosts! Wanna know how your friends perished in the Daily? Their ghosts will appear where they died, offering some creepy clues about what dangers are lurking about.

Hopefully this will be a fun way to increase the cooperative/competitive nature of the Daily Challenge. Blit also added a number of smaller features that take advantage of the PS4′s unique controller, like making the light bar color represent your player, and allowing players to use the touch pad to flip pages in the journal.

Finally, Spelunky composer Eirik Suhrke is also working on a free EP of remixed music from Spelunky that will include new songs from Eirik as well as distinguished friends like Manami Matsumae (of Mega Man/Capcom fame!).

This EP will be released on Eirik's [Register or Login to view links] alongside the debut of the game on PS4, and...
 

Mossmouth Reveals Spelunky PS4 is Coming to PlayStation 4

39w ago - Mossmouth's Derek Yu revealed today that Spelunky is coming to PlayStation 4 with details and some PS4 screenshots below.

To quote: Hello, past, present, and future Spelunky fans! I'll keep it short and simple: Spelunky is coming to PS4!

We're once again teaming up with BlitWorks, who did a great job on bringing the game to PS3 and PS Vita. For PS4, we want to do even more - like bump up the graphics to 1080p, let players upload replays to the leaderboards, add more social features to the Daily Challenge, and otherwise take advantage of the PS4′s unique hardware.

I attribute a lot of Spelunky's success to sharing and streaming, and since the PS4 is built in great part around those ideas, we want to make sure that we do everything we can to support that culture! Let us know in the comments if there's anything else you'd like to see us add.

If you already bought Spelunky on PS3 and Vita, thank you so much! You'll also own the game on PS4 when it comes out, since we're including it as part of cross buy.

But if you don't have it on console yet, the PS4 version launch would be a great time to see what it's all about, since you'll also get the game on PS3 and PS Vita!
 

Daily Challenges Now Available in Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita

62w ago - Mossmouth's Derek Yu announced today that daily challenges are now available in Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

Below are the details, to quote: Hey, everyone! It's Derek once again. First off, thank you for your tremendous support of Spelunky on PS3 and PS Vita.

You've made it clear that it was the right choice bringing the game to PlayStation! We're really happy about how the game has been received (generally with much glee, followed by screams of anguish, followed by more glee).

But I'm really here to talk about our first update, which is out now. Of course, every game launches with some number of bugs, and Blitworks has been working hard to fix as many of those as possible. The slowdown in certain areas of the game was probably the biggest issue, and that's been addressed. They also fixed a bug that was preventing certain Trophies from being earned.

Also, if you've been watching streams of people playing Spelunky on PC, you may have noticed that that version of the game has a unique feature called the Daily Challenge, where each day a set of levels is generated that has the same seed for everyone playing it. If you get a high score on the Daily Challenge, you can really attribute it to your skill and knowledge of the game, rather than the luck of the draw (i.e....
