On the PlaySta­tion blog, Ska Stu­dios announced today they will be bring­ing Salt and Sanc­tu­ary to the PS Vita on March 28th. 

For any­one who is unaware of what Salt and Sanc­tu­ary is, it is a 2D plat­former RPG that “seeks to cap­ture the dan­ger and mys­tery of a haunt­ed, unfor­giv­ing world, with the free­dom of explo­ration and cus­tomiza­tion, and the weight of your choic­es impact­ing each playthrough in sig­nif­i­cant ways.”

The game was sup­posed to launch on the PS Vita the same time as the PS4 ver­sion, but the two-per­son team was over­am­bi­tious and couldn’t get them out at togeth­er. In real­i­ty, Ska Stu­dios did not actu­al­ly make the PS Vita ver­sion of Salt and Sanc­tu­ary, Sick­head Games did. Sick­head Games is respon­si­ble for games like Stardew Val­ley and Dark­est Dun­geon, so the PS Vita ver­sion of Salt and Sanc­tu­ary is in good hands. 

Action RPG 'Salt and Sanctuary' Coming to PS Vita

Ska Stu­dios did a small amount of their own spunk into it, adding the HUD ele­ments, tight­en­ing some cam­era angles, tweak­ing and effect or two when need­ed. Accord­ing to Ska, “our con­tri­bu­tion on the project was pret­ty min­i­mal.”
