Atlus Unveils Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium PS Vita Edition

50°
121w ago - Atlus Manager of Public Relations and Sales Aram Jabbari has officially unveiled the Persona 4 Golden: Solid Gold Premium Edition today for PlayStation Vita fans.

To quote: Persona 4 Golden. It's so hot right now. It's Japan's hottest PS Vita game of all time, selling more than twice as many units as the next bestselling title.

In the weeks following P4G's release, PS Vita hardware sales in Japan saw a dramatic spike, larger than at any time since the start of the year.

Perhaps it's because the original Persona 4 became such a phenomenon, winning tremendous critical acclaim and adoration from consumers. It could also be because Golden, the enhanced and expanded PS Vita version of the game, dramatically improves on the beloved RPG classic in so many gosh darn ways.

Did you know I speak PS Vita? True story. I can hear yours from here, musing aloud, longing for something amazing; it's practically begging to be loved. It wants copious oodles of Persona and it wants said oodles right now.

It wants 100+ hours of interacting with fleshed out, sharply written characters. It yearns for a rich world to get lost in, for intense battles, for blazing fast load times. Translation: your PS Vita has a fever, and the only prescription, is more Persona 4 Golden.

Video: SunFlowers Are Beaming to PlayStation Vita This Fall

50°
121w ago - The Game Atelier Lead Game Designer Dr. Lakav has announced today that SunFlowers are beaming to PlayStation Vita this Fall.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello everyone, we are very proud to present SunFlowers, coming this autumn to PS Vita.

At first sight this game may look pretty casual – indeed, its objective is pretty simple: you have to grow flowers using chain-reactions.

You control the Sun, and you have the power to grow beautiful flowers on the ground. To do this, you shoot rays of sunlight through passing clouds, which turns the sunlight into water, which in turn causes the plants to grow. But if a sun ray touches a seed or a flower, it starts to burn. Thankfully, a drop of water will clear that burn right up.

When a flower reaches maturity, two new seeds pop out on both sides of it. If one new seed drops on an empty space it will be planted. If there's already another flower the seed will bounce on it until it reaches a clear slot (and that's how you make Combos!).

Every flower grown during a game goes directly in your virtual garden, where you can watch your collection and even offer them to your friends or a "near" player. See if you can collect all the flowers!

Everybody can enjoy SunFlowers, from casual to core gamers, so the...

Video: KickBeat Hands-On for PlayStation Vita: It's All in the Mind

50°
121w ago - Social Media Manager Sid Shuman is here with a fresh hands-on video showcasing KickBeat for PlayStation Vita below today.

To quote: At first blush, you could be forgiven for thinking that KickBeat is a new riff on Beats, that seminal PSP downloadable gem that transformed your MP3 collection into an engaging button-tapping rhythm challenge.

Much like Beats, KickBeat awards you points for accurately tapping combinations of the four face buttons (or four quadrants on the front touchscreen) in time to the music and subtle visual cues.

But KickBeat is a far more ambitious game, both mechanically and aesthetically. Abandoning the abstract icons that clutter the interfaces of many music games, KickBeat reimagines the rhythm game as a chop-socky fighting scene with an agile protagonist battling hordes of incoming goons in a circular arena.

Each successive hit you land yields a bigger bonus multiplayer and more points, while missing an incoming attack diminishes your life meter. The game ramps up slowly but surely.

Smacking down the most basic yellow enemy type is easy enough, but the action quickly accelerates as new enemies types are introduced - red enemies attack from two places at once, while blue aggressors come in with a tricky one-two combo.

Sony: Dust 514 Neocom PS Vita App Promises MMO on The Go

50°
121w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton announced today that the upcoming Dust 514 Neocom PS Vita application promises MMO on the go for fans.

To quote: Looking for a little more depth from your FPS? Hugely ambitious free-to-play sci-fi shooter Dust 514 might be just the ticket. CCP's PlayStation 3 exclusive sits alongside its enormously popular PC space MMO Eve Online, with players' actions in one game directly affecting the environment in the other.

See our recent post from the Icelandic developer for more on exactly how this plays out.

The third string to the whole intriguing project is Dust 514 Neocom - a companion PS Vita app that lets you interact with various systems from the PlayStation 3 game directly from your handheld.

In search of a little more information on exactly how it works, we collared CCP Creative Director Atli Mars Sveinsson and Marketing Director Cameron Payne at last week's Gamescom event in Cologne, Germany.

"It's a companion app to the PS3 game," explains Payne. "It brings all the customisation, community and commerce features onto the Vita. There's no direct gameplay but you can use pretty much all the features that...
