XBLA Title "Sine Mora" Being Ported to Vita

One of the best XBLA titles this year will soon go portable.

Sine Mora was one of the unexpected surprises earlier this year when it was released on the Xbox Live Arcade. It was a shoot-em-up with great presentation and a distinctive feel. Developer Grasshopper Manufacture and Publisher Digital Reality have decided to share the love and will bring the highly rated title to the PlayStation Vita via the PlayStation Network.

Joining the other characters in the game exclusively to the Vita version is Wilhelmine Muller, a guest character from Japanese cult studio G.rev's XBLA title Under Defeat, which was released earlier this year as well in Japan. Muller will have a brand new special weapon and new chronomes.

“When you’ve got a great game on your hands, there’s nothing you want to do more than share it with everyone,” said Balázs Horváth, director of publishing at Digital Reality. “We had a fantastic launch with Microsoft exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and we’re really excited to continue that on the Vita.” Check out our review of Sine Mora for the XBLA here to get an idea of what to expect on the Vita.

No release has been given other than a vague "arriving soon."

Press Release


Sine Mora, One of This Year’s Highest Reviewed XBLA Games, is Coming to PlayStation®Vita!

Budapest, Hungary – June, 4 – Sine Mora may very well have redefined the shmup genre with loads of character and exquisite presentation, and now it’s spreading its wings to PlayStation®Vita, so more players can experience the combined genius of Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture’s digital opus. Arriving soon, Sine Mora is set to blow minds yet again for an entirely new audience.

“When you’ve got a great game on your hands, there’s nothing you want to do more than share it with everyone,” said Balázs Horváth, director of publishing at Digital Reality. “We had a fantastic launch with Microsoft exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade, and we’re really excited to continue that on the Vita.”

Exclusive to this new version is a guest character from Japanese cult studio G.rev, responsible for many shoot’em up classics like Border Down, Strania or Under Defeat. Vita owners will be able to select a new hero, Wilhelmine Muller, coming directly from the fantastic world of Under Defeat. Of course, the presence of Wilhelmine also means a brand new special weapon and new chronomes, available only on Vita!

Co-developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality, Sine Mora is a dieselpunk shoot 'em up that provides a unique take on the genre, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with next-gen presentation, Sine Mora defines itself as a gorgeous shmup that appeals to both hardcore and casual gamers alike. Found on Xbox Live Arcade and coming soon to PlayStation®Vita, Sine Mora features over 60 combinations of planes, characters and time manipulation devices to complete every beautifully-crafted stage with scaling difficulty. All of this is set to an epic score of soaring heights composed by Akira Yamaoka (acclaimed for his works on Shadows of the Damned and the Silent Hill series) and with set pieces from boss battles designed by the legendary anime director Mahiro Maeda (Final Fantasy: Unlimited, The Animatrix segment "The Second Renaissance Parts I and II", and the animation sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1).

Valfaris Review

I have a few questions for you. Do you consider yourself to be masochistic in your choice of games to play? Are you driven by a need to show your superiority over other players and scoff at them for not “getting good”?

Well, you’re in luck, because have I got the game for you! Enter: Valfaris, a game so focused on punishing players that it forgets to be fun. Which, if you answered yes to the above questions should get you absolutely psyched, right?
