No, that was not a typo, you read correctly; Tyrone Rodriguez’s VVVVVV or V-6,  the successful 2010 PC and 2011 3DS game, will be coming to the PlayStation Vita, as announced by publisher Nicalis on the PlayStation blog.

The indie game, which was awarded the IndieCade 2010 award for “Most Fun and Compelling” game in October 2010, is about avoiding spikes. The player controls Captain Viridian, who is lost in an alternate dimension and in search of the missing members of the spaceship’s crew. Instead of jumping, the player is able to move left and right, as well as control the direction of gravity, allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of VVVVVV is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

A specific release date has yet to be announced.
