Nuclear Throne Details for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

Vlambeer is bringing their post apocalyptic mutant shooter to the PS consoles. Are you ready?

A recent posting on the US PS Blog details the upcoming shmup. It is described as a "top-down action game with procedurally generated levels. It’s Hotline Miami meets Binding of Isaac. It’s fast, difficult, and different every single time. It’s pulp sci-fi made into a video game. The world as we know it is gone — destroyed by some long-forgotten disaster — and mutants roam the planet. Players pick from a variety of mutants, ranging from a fish with a guitar to a scientist turned muscular hulk, and head out into the wastelands to conquer the elusive Nuclear Throne."

From a quick view through the trailer, you can see the frantic action, crazy upgrades and leveling system, and a lot of fun! There is a random creation to the levels, so it doesn't feel scripted, even when a boss battle approaches. You may be only given limited health and ammo just before a boss appears... just the luck (or unluck) of the draw. 

What do you think? Do you want to play this on the Playstation? Which console would you play it on? Let us know in the comments!
