Australian studio Nnooo is working on a new game for the PlayStation 4 and Vita. The EscapeVektor dev announced the news today after receiving PS4 developer approval.

"It's exciting to be developing for a new generation of consoles," said Creative Director Nic Watt. "We're delighted to get early access to PS4 development kits so we can get our games on the console as quickly as possible."

Nnooo says it's bringing the new game to other platforms too, and while Nnooo didn't specify them they'll almost certainly include at least one of the Wii U and 3DS. Nnooo bills itself as a studio making games for Nintendo and Sony platforms, while Business Director Bruce Thomson tweeted this morning its game will head "Nintendo-side" at some point.

"We're still at an early stage of development of our new game," said Watt. "We don't want to announce anything until we are more advanced with the project. Hopefully we'll be able to say something about it around the middle of the year."
