This was expected, considering the fact that Matt Hazard: Blood Bath and Beyond was a not-so-graphically-intense 2D Contraption of a game for the Xbox Live Arcade (XBLA) and later the PlayStation Network (PSN) as a download-only game. Vicious Cycle Software, the developer has announced that they will be supporting the lesser consoles the Nintendo Wii, the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) and the PlayStation 2 (PS2), Joystiq reports. By supporting, they mean that their Vicious Engine 2 (Ve2) will be used to develop games for these three consoles in addition to the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and the Xbox 360.
Vicious Cycle Software, a premier developer of interactive entertainment and game development technology, today announced that support for the Nintendo Wiiâ„¢, PlayStation ®2, and PSP ® (PlayStation ®Portable) platforms is coming to Vicious Engine 2 (Ve2) in early 2010. Ve2 currently supports both the Xbox 360 ® and PlayStation ®3, and the expanded cross-platform support will make Ve2 the most complete solution for next generation development on the market.
Vicious Cycle has experienced its fair share of ups and downs with the ups being not so high, and the downs being fairly depressing. Dead Head Fred, for example was released when Monster Hunter practically ate up everything else around it and the company admitted that they did not anticipate the abrupt change of audiences in the market. Nevertheless the turn of events seems to suggest that a graphically satisfying game will be up in the near future for these consoles.
