FuturLab signs to Sony for more Vita games

Having added some Velocity to the PSP minis range and helped launched PSM with some innovative updates to classic ideas, FuturLab, has signed a funding deal with Sony for the development of content for PlayStation Vita in 2013, with the studio keeping control of its IP (a big thing in gaming as we've seen in many a company post-mortem).

James Marsden, FuturLab’s Managing Director said: “We’re incredibly excited to be working closely with PlayStation over the next year, bringing our particular brand of twitchy fun to the PS Vita. Sony has provided a great package that means we retain full control of our IP, which is a perfect deal for us.”

Shahid Ahmad, Senior Business Development Manager at SCEE added: “We’re particularly pleased to be working with FuturLab to bring new and exciting games to PlayStation Vita. FuturLab has a unique and fun approach to entertainment and we see their games as being a fantastic addition to the ever growing catalogue of PS Vita games.”

FuturLab caught the spotlight earlier this year when their self published PS Minis title Velocity earned critical acclaim, and has since been part of the PlayStation Mobile launch line up with a trio of mobile titles including Fuel Tiracas and the new Surge game which should be out this week.
