Video: Mortal Kombat Hits PS Vita May 1st, New Kitana Trailer Out

100°
120w ago - Mortal Kombat Producer Hector Sanchez has shared some fresh Kitana video trailer footage today of Mortal Kombat, which will be hitting the PlayStation Vita handheld on May 1, 2012.

To quote: Developing Mortal Kombat for PS Vita was an incredibly rewarding experience for the team here at NetherRealm Studios.

The ability to utilize the numerous new features available on PS Vita was a very gratifying mission, and we are delivering the best possible on-the-go fighting experience for fans.

Our design team jumped at the opportunity to devise 150 new Challenge Tower missions that incorporate the DLC characters (like Freddy Krueger!), while also integrating the front touchscreen and accelerometer in ways that made sense and enhanced the complete Mortal Kombat experience.

The artists enjoyed creating some excellent new costumes (still to be revealed!), as well as re-creating an iconic MKII arena that integrates the rear camera that will give players the ability to literally Fight Anywhere.





Our programmers worked diligently to make sure the players' experience of Mortal Kombat on PS Vita was pristine and up to NetherRealm standards: fine tuning controls (while adding new controls, such as touchcreen...
 

Video: Free to Play Treasures of Montezuma Blitz Now on PS Vita

120w ago - Alawar Entertainment Product Manager Polina Belavskaya has announced today that free to play Treasures of Montezuma Blitz is now available on PS Vita with a gameplay video demo below.

To quote: PS Vita is the perfect platform for people on the go with short blocks of time to play games.

The first free-to-play game on the platform is Treasures of Montezuma Blitz, the newest game based on the popular Treasures of Montezuma franchise.

ToM has actually been around for years with its familiar match 3 gameplay, but each generation of the game has added new challenge and power-ups. This was one of the main things we wanted to ensure we hit with the PS Vita version. It had to be fresh and new, and most of all be fun.

A lot of people look at freemium or free-to-play games and think you have to spend money to be competitive and beat your friends. That's actually not the case with this game.

We built the game so it is actually really fun whether you're earning your power-ups by playing a lot and being rewarded in-game for your persistence, or if you are short on time and want the benefits of being a seasoned and dedicated player, you can spent a little to get a short-term power-up.

It's really the best of both worlds since it respects players that have...

120w ago - Beatshapers CEO Alexey Menshikov has announced that StarDrone Extreme is launching on PlayStation Vita today in the US (next week in Europe) alongside a video trailer below.

To quote: Alexey Menshikov ([Register or Login to view links]) and Andriy Sharanevych (Orb Games) here.

We are super excited to announce that long-awaited StarDrone Extreme for PlayStation Vita will be released today.

For those of you not familiar with what [Register or Login to view links] is about, here's a brief: you pilot the always-in-motion spaceship through diverse cosmic environments in order to beat each of the game's 60 levels' goals. Goals can range from getting to the end of the level, to destroying all enemies, to collecting certain items.

Each level starts by aiming and shooting yourself into the outer space from a cannon. Your spaceship is always in motion from this point on, and it's your job to attach to nearby gravity beacons to navigate your flight path.





While tethered to a beacon, you can swing and attempt to circle the beacon until you release and slingshot yourself further. This core mechanic allowed us to bring together elements of shoot 'em up, pinball,...
