The post-apocalyptic zombie survival twin-stick shooter Dead Nation will be available on PlayStation Vita tomorrow, April 15, in North America and April 16 in Europe, Sony announced today via the official PlayStation blog.

Officially unveiled at last year's E3, Dead Nation on Vita was under development at Climax Studios, who worked on the game's PlayStation 4 port which released last month; the PlayStation Network classic initially launched in 2010 on PlayStation 3, developed by Housemarque, the studio more recently known for PS4 hit Resogun.

Same as on PS4 and PS3, players on the Vita version can choose to tackle the game's campaign alone or with a friend via online co-op -- as well as ad hoc on Vita. Stats can also once again be uploaded to the leaderboards to contribute to the global rankings for each country.

Dead Nation on Vita will cost $7.99, with the Road of Devastation downloadable content available for $3.99. The game supports cross-buy with PS3 so anyone who purchased the original will be able to download the portable counterpart at no additional cost, same goes for the DLC.

According to the post, Climax "faithfully recreated the classic experience of the original PS3 game" and "Dead Nation feels right at home on PS Vita."
