Double Eleven, the developers behind the PS Vita versions of LittleBigPlanet and Limbo, have announced that PixelJunk Monsters: Ultimate HD is coming to the PS Vita. Working closely with Q-Games, Double Eleven have remastered the game to make use of the PS Vita’s high-resolution screen, adding touch controls and new features to the game.
Monsters Ultimate HD has more than 30 hours of gameplay set across story and challenge levels, and includes the Encore expansion that was released as well as all the extra towers, enemies, and levels from the Deluxe edition last seen on PSP.
If you’ve never played PixelJunk Monsters on the PS3 or PSP, it’s basically a tower defence game where you play as Tikiman. You are tasked with protecting your helpless babies from waves of incoming monsters by building weapon towers in the right places and at the right times in order to kill enemy monsters.
You can upgrade towers to better, more powerful ones, and Monsters come thicker and faster as the waves advance, keeping the challenge consistent throughout. The trophies in the game has also been updated for those wanting even more of a challenge.
