Yorkshire studio working on development of handheld port coming in Q2 2014.
18th December 2013 – Yorkshire, UK/… Leading British independent developer Four Door Lemon is proud to announce that it is handling the development of the upcoming PlayStation Vita editions of Joe Danger and Joe Danger 2: The Movie. The games will include all the content from both the 2010 IGF award nominated original, and its critically acclaimed 2012 sequel.
Founded in 2005, Four Door Lemon is one of Britain's most respected development studios, having contributed to hits such as New Star Soccer and the HD remake of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee for PlayStation 3.
Four Door Lemon is collaborating closely with Hello Games and Sony to ensure that the long awaited handheld editions offer the full and unabridged Joe Danger experience, with all the manic motorbike mayhem, painful pratfalls and stupendous stunts that fans will expect, along with a few fresh surprises.
“Joe Danger is incredibly precious to us, and there are very few people we'd trust with our baby, Simon and his team at Four Door Lemon have a well proven track record, especially on the PlayStation platform.” said Hello Games founder Sean Murray. “This is a great example of UK indie developers working together, helping each other to build something fantastic. It's an ideal fit!”
“We’re big fans of Joe Danger and Hello Games and having the opportunity to bring our favourite daredevil to the Vita was a dream come true for us,” says Four Door Lemon's founder Simon Barratt. “I have been hoping Sean would ask us to bring Joe to the Vita for a long time now as the blend of classic skill-based gameplay and humour is a perfect fit for the device. We can’t wait for fans to be able to experience the Danger on the go!”
Joe Danger will be released for PlayStation Vita in Q2 2014.
