'Towerfall,' Ouya's best game, is coming to the PlayStation 4

New weapons, new characters, and a new name

The Android-based Ouya console doesn't have many great games, but there is at least one standout: Towerfall, a Smash Bros.-style four-player combat game with an emphasis on archery. Now that game is coming to the PlayStation 4. Next year Towerfall's six-month exclusivity with Ouya will expire, and while we knew the game would be making its way to the PC, developer Matt Thorson has revealed that it will be hitting the PS4 at the same time as well. Along with the new platform comes a new subtitle, as the next version of the game will be known as Towerfall: Ascension.

"There's so much new stuff."

"It's not just a straight-up port," Thorson tells Polygon. "There's so much new stuff." Among the changes are new weapons, characters, and levels, as well as a brand new quest mode that can be played by one or two players. For those who bought the game on Ouya — the game sold just 5,000 copies on the platform — all of the new content will be available as a free update three months after Ascension launches. The announcement is just the latest in Sony's continued push to court a huge library of indie games for its PlayStation devices. You can expect to see Towerfall: Ascension on PC and PS4 in early 2014.
