Cult classic Vib-Ribbon will finally land in North America tomorrow

Back in 1999, that little vectorized rabbit thing (Vibri, if you want to get specific) bounded across televisions in Japan and Europe in a quirky little PlayStation title called Vib-Ribbon, Now, 15 years later, gamers in North America are finally getting a chance to steer her through an array of trippy musically generated levels… as long as they have a PS3 or PS Vita.

Sony Computer Entertainment America CEO Shawn Layden wrote in a blog post today that the cult classic would go live in the PlayStation Store tomorrow (no firm price just yet), and that the PS3 version retains the game’s original hook: you’ll be able to pop in an audio CD, and the game will automagically create a level from each track.

Alas, you won’t be able to play the game if you splurged on a PlayStation 4, though Layden was quick to point out that your time will soon come. Bummer, but hey: it’s not like you’re going to have to wait another 15 years, and you can peer beyond the jump to see what exactly you’ll have to look forward to.
