Developers of Resogun, the widely praised arena shooter that was launched with the PlayStation 4, are working on the release of a PlayStation Vita version.
James Hawkins, a representative for PlayStation Europe, told a fan on the PS Blog that the PS Vita version "is coming and is looking, sounding and most importantly, playing great."
Upon release in November 2013, Resogun was applauded for its visual effects and intense gameplay. Developer Housemarque was nominated for several key awards, including the DICE Game of the Year, while GameSpot's Resogun review was glowing with praise.
Critic Peter Brown wrote: "Resogun's controls, presentation, and rapid-fire enemy assaults make for an exciting experience. You're constantly under pressure, practically suffocating behind swarms of enemies, but you're never without the means for survival."
It is unclear when a PS Vita version will be released.

Publisher Activision is working frantically to take down a leaked video that has surfaced on the internet, which appears to confirm that a zombie mode is available in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The video first emerged on a Reddit thread, and although the thread is still active, the video it linked to has since been removed. Various copies, published elsewhere across the internet, are emerging and subsequently being taken down by Activision.
One clip, seen by GameSpot, shows hordes of zombies being mowed down by a high-capacity machine gun. Telltale details on the soldier's arms suggested that he was an EXO soldier from Advanced Warfare.
Glen Schofield, the co-founder of Advanced Warfare developer Sledgehammer Games, appeared to confirm the veracity of the leak on Twitter.
@CodFlufy nothing I can do about it now. But yeah it sucks. Imagine you're playing and this comes up- you'd be psyched up, right? — Glen Schofield (@GlenSchofield) October 30, 2014

Advanced Warfare launches November 4 (get it November 3 by preordering) for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, but not Wii U. Activision recently announced a special promotion whereby last-generation Advanced Warfare owners can upgrade to the current-generation version for free, with some limitations.
Publisher Bethesda has confirmed that the protracted and problematic Prey 2 project has now been cancelled.
A representative for Bethesda, Pete Hines, suggested to CNET that it was quality issues, and perhaps issues of direction, the sealed the game's fate.
"It was a game we believed in, but we never felt that it got to where it needed to be--we never saw a path to success if we finished it," he said.
"It wasn't up to our quality standard and we decided to cancel it. It's no longer in development. That wasn't an easy decision, but it's one that won't surprise many folks given that we hadn't been talking about it."
The first-person shooter was first announced in 2011, and thought to be in development at Human Head Studios, which had built the 2008 original.
Then, after a long period of silence since its announcement, the project was said to be "in limbo".
In August 2013, a new report suggested that Bethesda had moved the game to a new development team, known as Arkane Austin. Little more was said about the project thereafter.
Hines added that the Prey franchise may not be dormant forever.
"It's a franchise we still believe we can do something with--we just need to see what that something is," he said.

Sony sold 3.3 million PlayStation 4s worldwide during the three months between July and September, bringing its total unit sales to 13.5 million.Though the summer months are usually slow for game companies, they proved to be the second-best quarter for the PlayStation 4 yet, having surpassed the 2.7 million units it sold between April and June, and the 3 million units between January and March.The next-gen system's performance continues to outperform Sony's internal targets. Game income for the quarter soared to $195 million, and as a result Sony has increased its full-year targets by $89 million.Sales of PlayStation 4 were so strong that Sony claimed it was a key reason why revenue for the whole business climbed 7.2 per cent.However, the company-wide problems persist, particularly as it tries to absorb an impairment charge of $1.58 billion.Meanwhile, PlayStation Vita sales were not reported again. Sony instead merged that number with PlayStation TV and PSP sales, though together this still only reached 700,000 units for quarter.Overall, the corporation's lost $806 million during the quarter. This figure was a better outcome than most investors feared.
