9w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa shared details and a video today spotlighting Destiny of Spirits on PlayStation Vita below.
To quote: In Destiny of Spirits, building powerful spirits and working cooperatively with other users will be the key to progress successfully in the game.
If you haven't heard of Destiny of Spirits yet, it is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game for the PlayStation Vita. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits.
Today, I'd like to talk about summoning, merging and renting supporter spirits as well as items that can be used to help maximize your game progress.
Spirit Points, Summoning Stones and Destiny Orbs
This world contains three types of magical substances to earn and collect: Spirit Points, Summoning Stones, and Destiny Orbs.

• Summoning Stones are mainly used to summon Spirits to add to your collection.
• Destiny Orbs are the most powerful magical substance in this world, and they aren't easy to come by. You can obtain powerful Spirits...
9w ago - Armature Studio Technical Director and Co-Founder Jack Mathews confirmed today that Injustice: Gods Among Us hits PlayStation Vita on November 12, 2013.
To quote: Armature Studio is proud to announce our next game for PS Vita, Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition, is hitting stores on November 12th.
When developing Injustice on Vita, our primary goal was to make sure it could hold its own next to its console counterpart.
The PS3 version has beautiful lighting, destructible environments, and - most importantly - 60 FPS fighting. We worked tirelessly to bring this experience to the handheld, and pulled out all the stops to push the PS Vita as hard as we could to make all of the above happen.
In addition to all of this, we've included ad-hoc multiplayer, traditional multiplayer over wifi, and touch controls to Story Mode and various S.T.A.R. Labs Missions.
Also, since this is the Ultimate Edition, the game will include all downloadable content that was released for the console edition.
Our friends at NetherRealm Studios made such a wonderful game in Injustice: Gods Among Us. We're just happy to be able to use our experience on prior PS Vita projects to take what they did and spare no expense in creating a version of the game that allows people...
Since there's a good chance you're hearing about Shantae for the first time, here's a bit of background. Shantae is the name of the half-genie main character who carves through enemies with her destructive ponytail, and belly dances to transform into mythological creatures, animals, swords... and well, pretty much anything. There aren't many games that include the art of sensual dance as a main game mechanic, but Shantae pulls it off nicely.
The gameplay is best compared to Super Metroid or Castlevania Symphony of the Night, but with the visual styling of WayForward's own Ducktales: Remastered. WayForward puts its traditional feature film style animation in the front row along side rock solid gameplay, which has its roots firmly planted in the 8 and 16 bit era of classic gaming. WayForward's engine moves the...
10w ago - Grip Games CEO Jakub Mikyska announced that Atomic Ninjas is due out next week for both PS3 and PlayStation Vita platforms.
To quote: Hey everybody! This is Jakub, from Grip Games. Our long-awaited, multiplayer action platformer, Atomic Ninjas, is finally cutting its way to PS3 and PS Vita next week on PlayStation Store, Cross Buy and Cross Save, for $9.99.
We're happy to reveal that, contrary to a previous announcement, both the PS3 and PS Vita versions will be released simultaneously on October 8th - as all the evil ninjas sabotaging the launch were apprehended and beheaded
For those of you who not yet familiar with Atomic Ninjas, it's a hilarious, 2.5D platformer with a focus on multiplayer matches, both online and local. But single-player mode is also present, including vicious ninja-bots!
The most important gameplay feature is that you won't be able to directly kill your opponents. Instead, you have to use the arenas themselves to get rid of the competition. Who needs guns when you have lava, acid pools, and laser walls?
Your goal will be to push other ninjas into these environmental hazards and, of course, stay out of them yourself. This creates a completely new twist on gameplay, where you have to outmaneuver and outsmart your opponents.
