Towerfall Ascension rises to the Vita this week

Just a whole year after its PS4 release (trailered), and longer since the PC original, here comes Towerfall Ascension to the Vita. A battling retro arcade game, that sees brave knights, wizards and thieves try to rescue a kingdom from evil.

UPDATE: Finally, the game now has a confirmed June 16 release date - better late than never!

It looks fun, with intense battles over a single screen and a strong focus on accurate archery. However, given I'm having to squint a bit playing Bastion on the Vita's small screen, I can only hope there is a decent smart zoom function to keep things in perspective. Also hope it maintains the local player fun feel that the original aimed to capture.
