Limited Run Games have announced on their Twitter their next limited run project. Following on from the announcement of Octodad last week (that goes on sale this Sunday on their website, by the way) and their partnership with Sekai Project (including the first two games they are doing), the next title they are working on is indie game Nuclear Throne.

The platforms the game will be releasing on are the PS4 and PS Vita. Quantities are not known at this time. The tweet from LRG is below.

Limited Run Games are aware of the technical issues the game has on these platforms currently, and therefore will not be releasing the game straight away as revealed in a follow up tweet (below) addressing fan concerns.

For those not in the know, Nuclear Throne is a post-apocolypse shooter/roguelike hybrid, currently available for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, PS Vita with a PS3 version currently in development. The game adopts a sprite-based artstyle, and is known for the involvement the community had via the developer’s usage of Twitch to gain feedback on the game.

This next Limited Run project currently isn’t dated. But I’m sure many of us physical collectors, myself included, will be aiming to get their hands on a physical copy of this game when the physical release finally does come out for PS4 and PS Vita.
