3w ago - Sony Producer Jenny Murphy announced today that PlayStation Vita Pets is coming on June 3rd, 2014.

Below are the details, to quote: We are very excited to announce that we will be releasing PlayStation Vita Pets exclusively for PS Vita.

PlayStation Vita Pets is no ordinary pet game! The team at Spiral House set out to make something that was more than just a pet sim - we wanted to make something that felt like a real game, with characters, fun and adventure, so that's exactly what we did.

In the game you pick from four different puppies, each with their own personality, sense of humor and character traits. Once you've gotten to know each other and learned the skills needed to venture outside the safety of your home you'll be able to embark (no pun intended) on the adventure of Castlewood Island and uncover the long lost legend of a king and his dog.

That's right; outside of the home where you dress, play with, bathe and train your dog is a whole island of adventure to explore and puzzles to solve.

Together you'll be able to explore a massive forest, venture into multiple locations like spooky old mines and graveyards to ultimately make your way to the legendary castle...
 

Video: Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is Out Today for PS3 and PS Vita

3w ago - XSEED Games Localization Specialist Ryan Graff posted up a video announcing that Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is out today for PS3 and PS Vita platforms.

To quote: Ragnarok Odyssey ACE on PS3 and PS Vita is a game about slaying giants, and now that we're finally at launch, some of us feel like we've fought one ourselves!

Not just because it's a large game, although it certainly is. ACE is a massively expanded version of the original Ragnarok Odyssey, with enough new content to make it about twice the size this time around.

The most prominent new feature is a 400-story tower, with enough monsters and new story content to fill it; you'll see that once you reach the original game's ending, which is now the new game's midpoint. Throughout the game, you'll also discover new character skills, new weapon types, new NPC sidekicks, and a slew of other new features and conveniences.





ACE is the first Ragnarok Odyssey game to appear on PS3 as well as PSVita, with readily available cross play (for up to four players) and cross saving between the two.

The game also allows players to import their save data from the original Ragnarok Odyssey, bringing over their character's name, appearance, and cards (except...
 

Joe Danger on PlayStation Vita: 2 Full Games, 3 New Characters

3w ago - Hello Games developer Alex Wiltshire announced that Joe Danger on PlayStation Vita features 2 full fames and 3 new characters.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello I'm Alex! I work with Sean and the gang at Hello Games.

We made Joe Danger, the super-colorful, super-challenging racey platformy series starring a fat little stuntman! People have seemed to like it loads, calling it all kinds of nice things like "astounding" (Official PlayStation Magazine) and "perfect" (Game Informer).

So, you might remember that we're bringing Joe Danger to PS Vita, and I'm here to tell you that we're nearly finished! Also, I wanted to tell you some super special news.

So first up, both of our big-console games, Joe Danger and its sequel, Joe Danger 2: The Movie, are running on PS Vita at a smooth-as-butter 60 frames a second, looking clean as you like, and they play so, so nicely in your hands.

60FPS has always been so important to us, because that's how the games we grew up with ran. So it's fantastic that Vita can make it happen, especially since it totally looks just as good as the PS3 version. We're pushing about 400k polys a frame, which is pretty amazing. It loads real fast too.

You won't believe the work that's gone into making this happen - our friends...
 

Video: Mind Zero is Coming to PlayStation Vita on May 27th, 2014

3w ago - Aksys Games Marketing Manager Russell Iriye announced today that Mind Zero is coming to PlayStation Vita on May 27th, 2014 alongside a PS Vita video trailer below.

To quote: Greetings friends! Russell here from Aksys Games. Today, we announced that our newest title from Acquire and Zero Div will be hitting PS Vita on May 27th!

To celebrate, we've updated the Mind Zero website to give you a full rundown of the game, as well as posted a trailer. Mind Zero is a first-person dungeon crawler where you fight with your MINDs (literally and figuratively). We're here today to touch upon the story and get into a bit more details about the battle mechanics of Mind Zero.

Kei is a normal high school student until his life turns upside down when he forms a contract with a MIND, a weapon/being with deadly powers. With the government and other forces trailing him and his friends, Kei will need to discover the secret behind MIND before it's too late. Suspenseful stuff, right?

When you battle it out against the various other MINDs in the game, you'll have a choice to duke it out by yourself, use your MIND, or do a bit of both. There lies the challenge and fun of Mind Zero. Not only will you have to think about protecting yourself, but your MIND as well.



 

Deception IV: Blood Ties is Out Today for PS3 and PlayStation Vita

4w ago - Sony Producer Keisuke Kikuchi announced today that Deception IV: Blood Ties is out today for PS3 and PS Vita consoles.

To quote: It's safe to say that no other game in the world contains as many ways to kill and hurt enemies as Deception IV: Blood Ties, which is out today on PS3 and PS Vita.

More than 100 different traps allow you to slice, hit, launch, trip, and otherwise torment your victim in a variety of imaginative ways. Dropping a flower vase onto the head of a powerful hero as a giant high heel descends from the ceiling to crush him is not the kind of experience you can have in most other games.

Besides the traps that you can select and place yourself, you can also take advantage of stage traps. In one stage you can set up a launching trap to hurl your victims into the Car Wash, and in another you can roast them alive inside a Brazen Bull.

But while Laegrinna and her Daemons show neither mercy nor restraint toward their victims, we've worked hard to keep Deception IV: Blood Ties from getting too graphically violent. Dismemberment, for example, is never shown. Because more than anything, we wanted it to feel rewarding when a trap combo is successful, and for this we felt it was necessary to achieve the right balance between serious and comical.
