London, United Kingdom – April 22, 2014: System 3, the UK’s most successful independent publisher, is delighted to announce Putty Squad is now available digitally in a cross-buy promotion for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 for a limited time.

Available at one great price, Putty Squad can now be bought online at the Official PlayStation store for £19.99 (€24.99), with immediate access to both the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 versions. Putty Squad will also be available at retail for PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS in early May.

Putty Squad’s Vita and PS4 release sees the unlikeliest of heroes, Putty, ready to morph to levels greater than ever before with complete graphical overhaul. Every background, bitmap, enemy and ally has been redrawn and re-rendered to take advantage of the Vita’s gorgeous display, re-mastered from the PS4 base assets.

“With the festive season recently taken place, we thought there’s no better way than to continue the festivities with the release of Putty Squad on both PlayStation Vita and 4 than as a cross-buy promotion,” said Mark Cale, CEO, System 3. “Gamers will now be able to receive both formats at one affordable price, giving players the option of playing as Putty in the comfort of their home or on the go, as another in a long line of brilliant PS Vita games.”

Putty Squad has been given a complete overhaul in graphics to deliver a modern, immersive experience. Gameplay has been finely tuned to offer an accessible platform game for all fans, and downloadable free levels will be made available for a year after launch. As Putty you can punch, inflate, morph, stretch, lie flat and absorb on his journey through a host of different levels.

Putty Squad is also available digitally on Nintendo 3DS, providing excellent 3D visuals as Putty morphs through beautiful vistas, leaving players immersed throughout Putty’s journey.
