Kevin Zuhn, lead designer at Young Horses, today confirmed that Octodad: Dadliest Catch will be scurrying onto the PlayStation 4 this coming Tuesday, April 22.
"We started Octodad as a ragtag group of students, and it’s been a long and crazy ride getting our silly game on the PS4," Zuhn expressed. "This is our first foray into consoles, and we’re proud to be here. We released Octodad on PC back in January, and since then we’ve taken the time to improve it based on feedback from our players."
Beyond technical improvements, the team made an effort to add fresh new content to the zany sequel. Zuhn confirmed that "the latter third of the game in particular has gone through some radical changes, with added challenges like deck swabbing, jig dancing, and new disguises to wear! Let’s not forget local co-op mode, where you and your friends each take control of one of Octodad’s limbs and collectively cause chaos!"
In addition to local co-op, Young Horses took advantage of Sony's motion control hardware and "added support for new controller configurations like PlayStation Move, double PlayStation Moves, and our personal favorite, PlayStation Move plus Nav controller."
Octodad: Dadliest Catch will hit the market at $14.99, though PlayStation Plus members can pick it up for a discounted price of $11.99 through April 29. You can take a sneak peak at what to expect with the launch trailer below.
