26w ago - Co-creator Richard Hogg made available a video from E3 2013 today unveiling Hohokum for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita platforms below.
To quote: Hello there! It has been about a month since we announced that Hohokum will be available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita next year.
At the time I mentioned that we would have some gameplay footage coming soon... and here it is! It features lots of new gameplay footage as well as a close look at some of the characters from the game.
These bits were fun to make as they bring together lots of characters who never actually meet in the game. They seem to be getting on ok though, particularly Brollygirl and the oil-can guy. Gonna have to watch those two.
If you missed our previous announcement, Hohokum is a colorful, charming and whimsical game made by myself, Richard Hogg (I am an artist and illustrator) and Honeyslug, a London based game studio. It was an IGF and IndieCade finalist in 2011.
Hohokum will be playable at E3 in a few different locations including the PlayStation booth and the marvelous IndieCade booth. Look forward to seeing a bit more about Hohokum coming...
45w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford has posted up a fresh Tearaway: Welcome to Sogport PS Vita trailer video today with details below.
To quote: It's been a little while since we updated you on our progress making Tearaway, but that all changes today!
We recently showed some new parts of the game to members of the gaming press, and their previews and coverage of that should start appearing today across the Web. We introduced them to an area of the game we've been working on for quite some time, and today we'd like you to see it too!
Just one of the stops you'll make as you go on your delivery adventure in the world of Tearaway is Sogport, a mysterious island marooned in a deep sea of glue, and inhabited by some very fishy folk with a fearful obsession with the island's monstrous local wildlife. See for yourself...
Last August we introduced you to iota, and today we're really excited to introduce atoi (pronounced like the French phrase a'toi - "ah-twa" )
When you start your adventure, you'll be able to customize the game to your liking, choosing which messenger will accompany you on your journey, either iota or atoi, and also on the shape, size and color of your...
45w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Poria Torkan has confirmed today that Killzone: Mercenary hits PS Vita on September 17th alongside unveiling a new trailer and screenshots below!
To quote: Killzone: Mercenary is scheduled for a September 17, 2013 release in North America.
Killzone: Mercenary is a new first-person shooter in the Killzone series, developed specifically for the PlayStation Vita platform and powered by the stunning Killzone engine.
Starting just after the ending of the original Killzone, and revisiting many of the events from the Killzone trilogy, the game puts players in the rugged combat boots of a mercenary named Arran Danner. Danner is a former UCA-soldier who has no qualms about taking on paid contracts from the ISA as well as the Helghast.
When a seemingly routine mission to evacuate the Vektan Ambassador and his family in Pyrrhus goes awry, Danner discovers that the outcome of the war could very well depend on the fate of the Ambassador's young son.
With both sides going to increasingly desperate lengths to get hold of the boy, he begins to wonder whether the price of victory is really worth the paycheck.
We also have a brand-new trailer for you to enjoy:
53w ago - Atlus Marketing Manager Robyn Mukai has proclaimed that Persona 4 Golden is PS Vita's top-rated game today and shared a video trailer below.
To quote: It goes without saying that PlayStation.Blog readers are the some of the savviest, most informed gamers out there. So it almost seems silly to tell you that since its launch on November 20th, Persona 4 Golden has held the honor of being the highest-rated PS Vita title ever according to Metacritic and Gamerankings. Are you surprised?
Of course not, because you know P4G's immersive 100+ hour adventure backwards and forwards. You know the grounded, relatable characters that are at turns emotional, then hilarious. (Trial of the Dragon, anyone?) You're more than proficient at finding, fusing, and customizing all the best, strongest Personas to handle Kanji's steamy bathhouse boss battle.
You've memorized the list of upgrades and new content that have helped bring Persona 4 Golden to even greater heights of critical success than the beloved PlayStation 2 version it's based on. We know you know all this and so have no desire to pump this blog post full of extraneous information.
HOWEVER, as you may have a few less sophisticated...
54w ago - Wired Productions Product Manager Sean Walsh has shared a video today showcasing the gameplay in Let's Fish Hooked On for the PS Vita handheld console!
Below are the details, to quote: As we edge closer to the release of Lets Fish! Hooked On we're very excited to share the first official trailer with the PlayStation community, exclusively, to show some of the features that we first revealed on this very blog back in September. It's good to be back.
With this video we hope to demonstrate just how well-suited this game's fun, arcade style is to the PS Vita, whilst giving you more of a look at the variety of gameplay experiences you can expect from the first ever full-scale (our one and only pun - honest) anime-styled fishing game.
This is the first time developer, SIMS, (the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing), have developed a fishing game featuring anime-style characters; and it was built with the PS Vita's sleek and powerful capabilities firmly in mind.
Check out the trailer here:
Let's Fish! Hooked On is a quirky, fun and innovative fishing game, and as a PS Vita exclusive, it was designed to take advantage of a platform that was built to make the most of digital content.
