Fez Releases On All PlayStation Platforms Later This Month

Ooh, good news for PlayStation fans!

As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , the indie smash hit Fez will become available on the PS3, PS4 and Vita on March 25. This particular version was handled by port studio Blit Works ( Spelunky ), and they did have the help of original developer Polytron.

The PS4 version runs at a super smooth 60 frames per second and 1080p high-definition, while the PS3 version also hits 60 FPS but at 720p HD. As for the Vita, producer Marie-Christine Bourdua said it "runs smoothly at native resolution" but we don't have exact numbers. As she said about the PS4 iteration:

"You wouldn't think that upping the resolution would make a big difference in a game like ours, where the pixels are the size of Gomez's fist, but it really does look even crisper and blockier– in a good way."

We don't know how much the game will cost on any of the announced platforms, but it currently sells for $9.99 on the Xbox 360 and PC. All PlayStation versions are identical to the current version available for purchase, except for the fact that the Dual Shock 4's light bar assists players with the game's unlockable 3D mode:

"DualShock 4's lightbar has been put to the task of bringing a little bit of Fez's world into your own home, and you may not need to search for that dusty pair of red/cyan glasses to experience a very late-game easter egg."

Okay, so that isn't exactly necessary but it's a nice little touch. Fez is one of those games PlayStation followers wish they had when it originally released but…well, better late than never!

Might actually give this a go. Was so interested in it when it launched a while back. Though yes it can be purchased on steam, I just wanted to have this little one sitting on any of my Playstation platforms.

If you want a puzzle/platformer this would be a good move. Plus! If you want a tribute game to the days of old this would also suffice very well.
It was only $2 on steam a few months ago. I haven't tried it with the WASD keyboard controls, but It sure does work well with console controls.

here we go again!
a indie game releasing up against 2 of the biggest launches of the year.
how much shall we bet this time the developers will come back b*tching that this sold poorly?
for f*cks sake, why is it illegal to spread out game releases?
weve had 2 games, and a remake, release since the start of the year, covering 2 whole months!
and in just this month alone we have not 2, that covered 2 months, but more like 10 covering not even half of that time!
for f*cks sake, is it that hard to read a calendar!?

really really want to play this, and the walking dead season 2 for that matter, but its either those, or south park, infamous, dark souls 2, donkey kong country returns, and titanfall.
i wonder which group most are going to choose………..

I'm pretty sure at this point, they may know this won't sell bucket loads. I think they just wanted to have an opportunity to let PS fans have a go at it. I mean come on there won't even be a sequel because Mr. Fish flipped out on folks. So yeah.
