In the same fashion that BurgerTime may have enticed our earliest aspirations to be a home cook or Mario Kart gave us all Mario Andretti envy, present day gamers yearning to be maids and custodians now have a game to inspire them.

Released today on PlayStation3 and PS Vita, Capcom has announced the arrival of Dustforce, a momentum-based platformer that allows you to free your surroundings of filth, armed with mops, feather dusters, and brooms as--that's right--super janitors.

Become one of the force’s cleaning-supply clad characters, each with their own fighting styles: vacuum-packing Dustworth has the highest jump hang time, default role Dustman masters the double-jump, and all the cast members can repel off walls and ceilings. Enemies won’t be eating your dust; the dust is your enemy. As a fan of the original Steam title, Fanboys Anonymous's Casey Mac lent his take on why this is a welcome addition to the console world. “I liked it a lot. The gameplay will translate perfectly to a handheld, so I think the Vita is the perfect platform for it.”
