Polytron announced Fez will finally be making its debut on PlayStation platforms on March 25.
The game will be available digitally for $12.99 through the PlayStation Network. Fez is also a part of Sony’s Spring Fever 2014 sale. As a part of the month-long sale, PlayStation Plus subscribers can buy the game for a special PS Plus Launch Week price of $9.99.
Cross-Buy and Cross-Save are supported for Fez. Available on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita, players who purchase one version of the game have access to the other two. A cross-save slot is shared across all three platforms as well, so progress can be resumed on the go.
Fez was originally released for the Xbox 360 in April of 2012. It received widespread critical acclaim for its nostalgic platforming, music, art style and more. Phil Fish, Fez’s creator, also gained notoriety for both himself and his game. His public persona and appearance in Indie Game: The Movie put Fez and its protracted development in the spotlight of the industry. A PC port arrived later, receiving a 93 percent score in our review.
[adsense250itp]BlitWorks helped port Fez to PlayStation platforms. The company also brought Spelunky to the the PS3 and Vita. Fez runs at the PS Vita’s native resolution and 720p at 60 frames per second on PS3. On the PS4, the game will run at 1080p with 60 frames per second. Though few changes have been brought to the experience, the DualShock 4’s lightbar will be functional. 3D support is also integrated.
For PlayStation fans, two years seems like a very long wait to finally have their taste of Fez. Since arriving on PC, the game has been a part of numerous sales and packages like the Humble Bundle. Because of that, there’s a chance many PlayStation owners have already experienced the incredibly unique world of Gomez. However, the price point is an easy sell, especially for three versions of the game. Will it bring Phil Fish out of exile and reignite development on Fez 2? Players can dream.
