TowerFall is hands down the best game ever... on the OUYA. Yes, the game has been exclusive to the OUYA and will continue to be so for the time being. Until 2014, that is. In 2014, confirmed today at the PlayStation 4 All-Access event, TowerFall Ascension will be coming to PlayStation 4. That's not just TowerFall, that's TowerFall ascended with about a game's worth of extra content. Trust me, we are not prepared.
What sort of content is required for true ascension? Luckily TowerFall Ascension's creator Matt Thorson can tell us:
"... with TowerFall Ascension, my team and I have the freedom to finally fulfill our complete vision for the game. There’s a crazy amount of new content: 50 new versus levels, 4 more playable archers, an all-new, twelve-player cooperative Quest mode, 6 additional power-ups, and more. We’ve even gone back and refined everything in the original release. It feels like a whole new game. I’m incredibly excited to expand the TowerFall community to PS4, and to hear all your battle stories."
It's simply indescribable, the glee that TowerFall inspires in its players. I've seen the game multiple times at an assortment of events, though I don't know anyone with an OUYA. At each event there's always been a line of players waiting for a shot at playing the game. They huddle in small groups, cheering and jeering and sharing strategies. This is just one of those games. You know those games, right? Pong, Joust, Street Fighter, GoldenEye, Halo... it's one of them.
TowerFall Ascension will be coming to PlayStation 4 in 2014 as a "console exclusive." That means it's also coming out on PC and will probably come to other consoles down the line. PlayStation 4 has dibs on it first, however. Well, unless you count OUYA. Eh. This is a must-buy, everyone.
