Penny Arcade heads for PSN

Episodic RPG adventure hitting PS3 this autumn

The lengthy-titled Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness is being ported to PS3 for episodic release via PSN.

Episode one of Hothead Games' "RPG-Adventure game series set in the comic-book-meets-pulp-horror-meets-H.P. Lovecraft deranged 1920s universe of New Arcadia", will arrive this autumn.

You play as Gabe and Tycho, two crime detectives who "combat savage enemies and solve mysteries hidden deep in the sinister heart of New Arcadia." Check out a review of the 360 version here.

No Trophy support was announced, and Hothead Games says episode one will be priced "in line with the game on other platforms", which goes for 1600 MS points on 360 (about £14). First PS3 screens are below.
