For a game in alpha, Velocity 2X sure does look good. The sequel to Velocity Ultra seems to be shaping up nicely for PS Vita and PlayStation 4, featuring a slick and fluid art style in addition to new on-foot shooting and platforming segments.

If it is anything like the first game, it should make for a great time for fans of scrolling shooters. In a recent PlayStation Blog post, developer FutureLab discussed how the game is exceeding its original visual benchmarks, with the PS Vita version of the game standing toe to toe visually with the PS4 version. You can read more about the process of crafting the game's visuals here.

Velocity 2X currently doesn’t have a release date. If you're interested in checking out more from FutureLab, the studio released a new Vita title this week called Surge Deluxe.
