Sony has announced PSone Classic rhythm-action game Vib Ribbon will be available today in North America via PSN on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The cult hit Vib Ribbon is coming to Europe on October 15th.
Vib Ribbon is a rhythm game in which players guide the main heroine, Vibri, across a line filled with obstacles tied to the song. There are four basic obstacles; block, loop, wave, and pit, which require players to press the L, R, X, or Down buttons respectively at the right time to navigate. Sometimes two obstacles will be merged together, requiring the player to press two buttons at the same time (for example, a block with a pit will require players to press L and Down together). Getting hit by obstacles too many times will degenerate Vibri from a rabbit into a frog, followed by a worm. Getting hit too many times while in worm form will end the game. Successful actions will help Vibri recover back to her higher forms, and clearing enough obstacles in succession while in rabbit form will evolve Vibri into an angel, increasing the player’s score until Vibri is hit.
