Luftrausers flying to PS3, PS Vita, and other platforms this spring


Dutch studio Vlambeer has recently enjoyed success with its iOS hit Ridiculous Fishing, and now it has a new announcement to make. Another one of its titles, Luftrausers, is coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Luftrausers is a dogfighting or aerial-combat game where you build and fly your own airplane. The developer unveiled the Flash game in spring of 2012. The last time it shared news on Sony's PlayStation Blog, it discussed the release of Super Crate Box on PlayStation Mobile.

"We’ll be honest with you — the reason this game is going to hit PS3 and PS Vita is because we loved working with Sony when we made Super Crate Box," wrote Vlambeer's Rami Ismail on the PlayStation Blog. "We think both platforms are great and we obviously want you to be able to play our games — but we don’t like dealing with people that treat us as some sort of commercial asset only. We want to work with people that love games as much as we love working on them."

He added, "We had to deal with barely any of that red tape."

That seems like something we've been hearing a lot of lately from indies.

Devolver Digital, which helped with Hotline Miami, is assisting with the ports for Vlambeer. Luftrausers also coming to PC, Mac, and Linux this spring. It will cost $9.99.
