Polytron is finally bringing its indie darling FEZ over to Sony machines with ports announced for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Not wasting any time to break into the next-gen either, FEZ was also announced for the PlayStation 4, further establishing the console’s indie cred on the competitive scene.
Since its launch in 2010, the game has performed admirably for an indie title, selling 200,000 units in its first year on Xbox Live and cracking 100,000 in a single weekend alone during the Steam sale. Additional platforms means more exposure for the title, and with three new audiences able to play the game on their console of choice, FEZ is bound to explode even further.
A lot of anticipation still waits with a few more announcements from Polytron. Creative Lead and founder Phil Fish recently made headlines by canceling development of the sequel, FEZ II, and has yet to reply to the Xbox One’s new indie game distribution plans. FEZ has not yet been announced for the Xbox One, and Fish famously stated that he had no interest in bringing any games to the platform.
The world waits to see if Fish will continue with his early retirement or if he will finally plan to jump back aboard.
Regardless of Polytron’s current state, FEZ being available on more platforms means more money and more gamers happily enjoying it. Are any of you who still haven’t played it interested now that it’s Sony bound?
