The Swapper to be a cross-buy title on all three PlayStation systems.
Today Curve Digital revealed that the PlayStation version of their award-winning puzzle title, The Swapper, will be released on August 5, 2014 in North America and on August 6, 2014 in Europe. This means that the game has been pushed back, for those unaware, as it was initially scheduled for a June 24 release.
The reason for he delay, according to Curve, is so that they have extra time to polish both the Vita and PS3 versions of the game, which they state have required extra optimization. Said Jason Perkins, Managing Director at Curve, “The Swapper is our first indie title to really push the limits of the PlayStation 3 and Vita. We’ve been able to really throw the power of the PS4 at the game, but we also want to ensure that when the game comes out it looks great and runs well at 30 FPS on hardware that, in the case of the PS3, is over seven years old.”
Upon release the game will be a Cross-Buy title on all three PlayStation platforms. In addition, players who pre-order the title in early June will be able to secure a bit of a discount.
