The original “Coq of War” sets out on a mission to assassinate the tyrannical penguin leader therefore taking down the evil regime that has taken over Albatropolis. This over the top adventure is non-stop action as players are challenged with unlocking secrets, destroying enemies and much more.

The current PS3 version has been amped up for the PS Vita and notable differences with the PlayStation 3 game include tilting screens, both Adhoc and Online Co-op and two difficulty settings. The Vita version has a new end boss as well as improved graphics – several chapters have been modified to improve both graphics and flow.

Players who have already launched into Rocketbirds on the PlayStation 3 will be rewarded with two additional co-op characters, Sniper Budgie and Agent H – the bird behind the sci-fi rock band New World Revolution. And to thank the fans who bought the PlayStation 3 game, Ratloop Asia will give them a discount when they buy the Vita game.

PlayStation Plus users should be on the watch for special offers including Rocketbirds during the month of February.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is rated “M” for Mature by the ESRB and will be available on PlayStation Network in North America on February 12, 2013.
