As you’d expect, the PS4 version of Flame Over boasts a ton of improvements over the Vita original, including:

Amazing graphicalness!
You’ll be blown away by the amount of detail in our 3D environments, which really gets to shine on the big screen. The game loads near-instantly and is full 1080p 60fps, plus we’ve thrown in lots of sexy touches like ‘bloom’, real-time-shadows and all that jazz!

Interactive Teachings
We’ve made a training-friendly tutorial where you can play through 2 levels of the game fully powered up, getting to test out lots of the game’s extra equipment and powerups in a *slightly* less dangerous environment.

Even more Extra stuffs!: The PS4 edition features additional rooms, secrets and mechanics, making it the ultimate version of the game.
