Drinkbox Studios, perhaps best known for Guacamelee, has announced that their latest game Severed is in fact hitting iOS. Now, you might be asking "how is this news?!" The game was originally announced for mobile, right? Well, somewhere inbetween the announcement and the present, Drinkbox decided to make the game a Vita exclusive. The trick was that all reports on the game from people who played it found that it still pretty much used the touchscreen exclusively. A mobile version didn't seem impossible. And so, Severed has been reannounced for iOS specifically, along with the Wii U and 3DS. Which are both touchscreen systems as well. Android gamers, keep up hope. Here's a new trailer for the game, specifically the console versions. However, representatives for the game have specifically confirmed the iOS release, and a quote from Drinkbox co-founder Graham Smith says "The game's recent release on the Vita was well-received by critics and fans alike, and we look forward to bringing the experience to Apple and Nintendo fans."

Severed has you swiping to attack and interact with the game's various puzzles, as you control the one-armed Sasha. You'll slash, you'll discover new abilities, and try not to succumb to giant floating skull wizards. The game looks gorgeous, as with Drinkbox's other titles, and this one got some good reviews on Vita, so get excited for this one...again...when it releases this summer.

    Thank goodness. I knew they wouldn't be so mad as to keep this a Vita exclusive. Can't wait for this!

  • HippoHumper

    Word. I hope this does well cuz I've always wanted Guacamelee on the iPhone and this may give them more incentive to do so

  • Archbreaker

    It's a great game to play. I definitely recommend it.

  • OrangutanKungfu

    This looks freaking amazing. Great news.

  • ScotDamn

    I specifically haven't played it but it looked cool on the PSN store. The controls looked cool, specifically the swiping. Either way, I'm happy it isn't exclusive to the vita anymore. Mobile touchscreen should have been the true exclusive platform.. Specifically.

    Can't wait!

    It was great on the Vita, and should be perfect for touch devices.
