The 2011 PC strategy title, Frozen Synapse, will be coming to both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in the form of Frozen Synapse: Tactics.

Double Eleven’s new digital publishing branch, D11 Games, will be working with Mode 7 to bring this highly touted title to consoles in 2013. The top-down, stylish RTS pushed around 430,000 units, according to a recent press release, but this new iteration won’t be resting on past accomplishments. Things will be different on Sony’s platforms.

“We are thrilled to be working on Frozen Synapse; our vision is to reinvent the game’s aesthetics and interactivity in the same way that Mode7 reinvented strategy gaming with this title,” Demi Gounari, the game’s new art director, said.

Little has been said about what’s actually going to be different, but COO Mark South knows this will be a great console game.

Frozen Synapse for us represents some of the best work coming out of the UK and onto the PC. We know there’s also a great console game in there as well waiting to be realised.” South said. “We don’t want to give too much away yet, but I will say that Frozen Synapse: Tactics is not simply a transition of the original onto console; we will be giving it a complete Double Eleven makeover.”
