Cel Damage HD out Tuesday on PS3, PS4, Vita

European release date coming soon

Cartoon car combat game Cel Damage HD will release on PS3, PS4, and PS Vita next week.

Developer Finish Line games announced on Friday that the remastered GameCube/PS2/Xbox game will release in the US on Tuesday, April 22 for $9.99. PlayStation Plus members receive a 10 percent discount during the game's launch week.


The studio said on Twitter that it will announce a European launch date "as soon as we can".

Cel Damage is a cel-shaded, vehicular combat game - a cartoony take on Twisted Metal-style gameplay - with 10 characters and 30 wacky weapons.

The game features deathmatch, capture-the-flag and racing modes, with matches set within 13 environments. 4-player split-screen play is confirmed for PS3 and PS4, but no online play was mentioned, nor were any multiplayer features for the Vita version.

The PlayStation remake is a cross-buy purchase for PS4, PS3, and PS Vita (buy one version for access to them all), and cross save compatible for save game transferal between platforms.

The 2001 original was an EA-published title developed by Pseudo Interactive, praised for its cel-shaded visuals but receiving otherwise mixed reviews.
