Dogfight your way to victory in Vlambeer's Luftrausers for PS Vita

Product: Luftrausers
Developer: Vlambeer
Publisher: Devolver Digital
Format: PS Vita
Genre: Arcade, Shooter
Around six or seven months ago, Ridiculous Fishing developer Vlambeer told us that it would "consider" bringing dogfighting title Luftrausers to "mobiles" once it'd finished work on the Mac and PC versions.

Today, Vlambeer's Rami Ismail has confirmed on Sony's US PlayStation Blog that Luftrausers will definitely be coming - not to mobiles - but to the PS Vita handheld instead.

According to the blog post, Vlambeer is releasing its title on PS Vita because it "loved working with Sony" when it made Super Crate Box.

Instead of worrying about red tape and fulfilling demands, then, the studio has spent time creating new levels and - most importantly - making the plane crashes in Luftrausers more spectacular.

This Vita version of the game will allow you to equip your plane with 125 different weapons (including machine guns and lasers) and propulsion systems before you take it into fast-paced aerial battles against other fighters and warships.

The game will be available this spring for £6.99 / $9.99. 

Mobile users are out of luck, sadly. In a Reddit AMA, Vlambeer ruled out Luftrausers for iOS, saying that "the controls simply are even tougher than Super Crate Box to implement."
