Developer Rain Games announced via their blog that their indie puzzle-platformer Teslagrad, will be available on the North American PlayStation store on April 14th for $14.99. While the game has been released in Europe and Japan for a few months now, the developer wanted to time its North American release with the planned physical version for the territory.
However after multiple delays with physical production the developer decided to release the digital version now as they “thought it was better to not delay the digital version even more when it’s been good to go for months!” the developer said in response to questions on Reddit.
Rain Games also reiterated that the disc version of the game is still coming to North America for PS3, PS4, and Wii U, with a tentative release date of Q2. With the possibility of a physical release on the PS Vita as well, depending on retail sales of the other versions.
Considerable work is still being done on the PS Vita version of the game with development expected to “take at least a few months” if not longer. The main problems stem from having to optimize the game for the Vita’s weaker hardware, however porting the game to PS3 has helped to ease that process if only slightly.
We gave Teslagrad an exceptional 9.5/10 when it released for PC last year so its certainly one worth picking up if you still haven’t come Tuesday.
