PS Vita Release: Fahrenheit – Indigo Prophecy (port) by TheFloW and Rinnegatamante
Another one for our favorite handheld! Developers TheFloW and Rinnegatamante have released yet another port for the PS Vita: Fahrenheit. This release comes after other great Android-based ports by these two scene powerhouses last year, such as Crazy Taxi (which recently got an update btw), Rockstar’s Bully and GTA San Andreas, as well as Final Fantasy ports by Rinnegatamante and Frangar.
Like all other similar ports by TheFloW and Rinne, you will need a legit copy of the Android version of the game, which you can buy for example on Amazon (affiliate link).
What’s Fahrenheit Indigo Prophecy for PS Vita
Fahrenheit Vita is a “port” of the android version of the popular Action-Adventure game by Quantic Dream.
Fahrenheit is an action-adventure game played from third- and first-person perspectives. The main controllable characters are Lucas Kane, a man supernaturally possessed into committing murder, and New York City police detectives Carla Valenti and Tyler Miles, who pursue him. Story details can change and three endings are unlockable depending on what the player does, including managing the protagonists’ state of mind and pressing on-screen prompts.
The developers have used the same technique they’ve used over the past year, to port Android games straight to the PS Vita, with only minimal conversion, and no emulation required. From the port’s readme:
This is a wrapper/port of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy for the PS Vita.
The port works by loading the official Android ARMv7 executables in memory, resolving its imports with native functions and patching it in order to properly run. By doing so, it’s basically as if we emulate a minimalist Android environment in which we run natively the executable as is.
