FuturLab’s Next Mini Is…Velocity

We’ve known about FuturLab’s upcoming game for quite some time, but we didn’t know the name or just when it would come out. Now, thanks to a post on the Sony EU blog, we know both. The name is “Velocity” (reminding me of my favorite Olivier Gruner movie), and the release date is in March for members of PS+ for EU and NA, presumably the standard two weeks later for everyone else.

If this is even half as addictive as Coconut Dodge, this will be a game that will be very hard to put down.

    Technically, I think the NA PS Blog simultaneously posted about the game, alongside the EU Blog. It was all over the Atlantic!

    By the way, I’ve gone ahead and attached the “Velocity” tag to the earlier “unnamed FuturLab shooter” posts.

    ……*picks up jaws from ground* this just made ASSf2$ look primitive….

    Lol, looks so bad. Better wait for real shooter instead of going for the cheap wannabe.

    As a player of “real shooters” (presumably meaning titles like Gradius, R-Type, Darius, Raiden, Ikaruga), I assure you Velocity is not “so bad.” It’s not a traditional scrolling shooter, more of a shooting/puzzling/racing adventure, but it excels at providing engaging, unique gameplay.

    And considering the game has been out for a year, you should try it for yourself before judging. : ) At least read the PSPMinis.com review.
