Hotline Miami raging bull

Following the Twitter post featured in the last Hotline Miami article, Nigel Lowrie at Devolver Digital has confirmed that the PlayStation 3 and Vita ports of the game are indeed arriving next week. The game is due on Tuesday, June 25th, and will be available for $9.99 USD.

Devolver Digital and Dennaton Games were hard at work with Abstraction Games to faithfully reproduce the tight and fast-paced design of the original Hotline Miami on the PS3 and Vita. In addition, an exclusive Russell the raging bull mask, designed by Abstraction and Dennaton, will be available in these versions.

Abstraction and Dennaton give us a stage where this bull can rage.

The mask is hidden early in the game. Unlocking Russell and wearing the mask will change the entire game to a black-and-white “classic film look,” while the splatters of red gore remain in color. You’ll feel like a mad bull as you murder enemies in a violent rampage.

The PS3 and Vita ports include Trophies, online leaderboards, and exclusive touch support for aiming in the Vita version. Hotline Miami can be played on both systems with a single purchase, thanks to the cross-platform feature between the PS3 and the Vita.

For those who are new to the game and those who have experienced Hotline Miami before, this new version is another phone call for an exercise in unbridled ultra-violence.
