Hitman Go, a strategy game that has previously only been available on mobile devices, is coming to consoles next week. Square Enix has revealed through a blog post on their site that that title would be available on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita from February 23, while a Steam version has also been greenlit.
The new version will include upgraded graphics, all previous downloadable content and new control schemes. Meanwhile, the Steam edition will allow players to gain access to emojis and trading cards alongside a collection of achievements.
Hitman Go sees players take control of Agent 47 as they try to avoid enemies and overcome obstacles. As with other turn-based puzzle games, the protagonist is not directly controlled but simply ordered where to go and what to do, providing a more strategic overview of the world. Although the vast majority of objectives are simple, usually involving passing through a level without being caught or assassinating a target, the game becomes increasingly complex as progress continues.
The game, which has received rave reviews and holds a Metacritic ranking of 81/100, originally released in 2014 for iOS devices. It was developed by Square Enix Montreal, a new studio that formed in 2011 as part of a merger between several other teams in the area. It finally made its way onto Android and Windows devices in 2015.
