This Intriguing Rhythm Slasher Launches With PlayStation Mobile Tomorrow

While the majority of the 20 or so titles launching tomorrow for the PlayStation Mobile platform on Android and PlayStation Vita remain up in the air, the ones I know for certain — Eufloria and this, Beatnik Games' side-scrolling rhythm action game Samurai Beatdown — are certainly worth the price of admission.

I'm a huge fan of putting any sort of action to a beat, and that's what Samurai Beatdown does. It's like a sequence ripped out of the hip hop-heavy anime Samurai Champloo, marrying beats with sword slices. Each level has its own song and feel.

In the announcement for Samurai Beatdown, Beatnik managing director Sherif Aziz does shed a little light on PlayStation Mobile, mentioning that the platform allows developers to update when and how they please, and explained why he was excited about PSM.

I think the market for PlayStation Mobile is very exciting. The nature of the devices supported (finally we have buttons - Vita and Xperia Play) I feel we could make some very interesting and cool games people will really enjoy on mobile devices (I loved Super Crate Box but I cringed when I played on the iPhone — however I think PlayStation Mobile is an ideal platform).

Funny, one of the reasons I'm excited about PSM is Samurai Beatdown.
