Not played Hotline Miami? Then you’re in luck, it’s getting a release on the PS Vita and PlayStation 3 next week, and better yet it’s dirt cheap with some nifty new features.
Dennaton Games revealed in a post on the PlayStation Blog that an exclusive mask would be included with the PS Vita and PlayStation 3 version of Hotline Miami; Russell the Raging Bull.
Donning Russell the Raging Bull disguise will let you avoid trouble as a beefed up cow (if that makes any sense…) and can be used to apply a filter of sorts to the game, giving it a really murderous look and feel. Creepy.
Nigel Lowrie of Dennaton Games goes on to state that “Russell is hidden early on in the game and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It’s a really neat effect and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look – see the image at the top of the post.”
Nifty, eh? What’s even more nifty is that Hotline Miami is a cross-buy title, so buy it for the PS3 and you’ll be enjoying your purchase on the PS Vita for the grand sum of….Nothing!
Hotline Miami will be releasing on the PlayStation Network on June 25th in North America and a day later on the 26th for us lot in the UK and Europe. The price? Pretty cheap at £7.29, made all the better by the cross-buy incentive.
