"The most prominent new feature is a 400-story tower, with enough monsters and new story content to fill it; you'll see that once you reach the original game's ending, which is now the new game's midpoint," explains XSEED's Ryan Graff.

The new game also feature new cross play functionality for up to four players spread across the two platforms, and can accept save files imported from the original game.

The game hits retail today in both physical and digital forms. The PS3 game costs $39.99, while the PS Vita features differing price points; $34.99 digitally and $39.99 at retail "for the first print-run Launch Edition physical version", which comes with a soundtrack CD.
