Publisher 505 Games has announced that Minecraft-esque 2D action-RPG Terraria is one of the more than 100 titles that will be released on PS Vita sometime this year.

"We're all huge fans of Terraria and have been overwhelmed by the support we've received from the existing community since we began working with the property," Tim Woodley, 505 Games's head of global brand, said.

"It's been amazing to see how many of those fans have been asking for a portable version of Terraria so they can take their adventures with them on the go."

In Terraria, you're tasked with exploring a randomly generated 16-bit world.

Along the way, you have to gather ingredients and craft a variety of tools and weapons that allow you to mine valuable resources and defeat the waves of enemies that show their ugly faces at nightfall.

If you play this title on its hardest difficulty level, your on-screen avatar becomes a ghost upon death and is permanently deleted from the game. Ouch.

You'll be able to download Terraria on Sony's PS Vita sometime this summer. Check out the special live-action trailer above while you wait for it to drop.
