Atomicom announced today that they are bringing Switch Galaxy Ultra - their highly acclaimed PlayStationŽMobile title - to PlayStationŽ4 and PlayStationŽVita. The announcement was made following Sonys keynote at GDC Europe.
Switch Galaxy became one of the most critically acclaimed titles on PlayStationŽMobile and it was due to this resounding success that the studio are bringing an Ultra version to PlayStationŽ4 and PlayStationŽVita.
Originally released on Android in July 2011 as Switch, the game was developed in just six weeks and went on to be downloaded over two million times worldwide. Since then, Atomicom gave the title an overhaul and created the first version of Switch Galaxy for PlayStationŽMobile in March 2013.
Switch Galaxy Ultra includes a super smooth 60FPS with enhanced graphics and effects plus new content including levels, ships and upgrades. Atomicom also enlisted Darren Douglas, original Wipeout concept artist, to create a comic introduction and in-game comic scenes for the game.
Gary Nichols, CEO and Founder of Atomicom, says: The recognition and enthusiasm for Switch Galaxy from the PlayStation community and press has been fantastic. We are thrilled at the opportunity to not only make a native Vita version but to also create a PlayStationŽ4 version. He adds: We had a lot of plans to develop Switch Galaxy further and thanks to the support of Shahid and his team at SCEE, all of this is now possible.
Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, says: The team at Atomicom really impressed us with the PlayStationŽMobile version of Switch Galaxy. We wanted to support them with their future plans for the game and are looking forward to seeing both PlayStationŽ4 and PlayStationŽVita versions.
