89w ago - Square Enix Marketing Manager Jem Alexander has unveiled their first PlayStation Vita game today, entitled Army Corps Of Hell as seen in the demo video below!
To quote: Army Corps of Hell is our first game for the PlayStation Vita. In the game you will control the King of Hell, who has been banished and is seeking to reclaim his throne with the help of an army of goblin soldiers.
Army Corps of Hell is being developed by Entersphere and will feature plenty of dark humour as you venture further into the depths of Hell.
With Army Corps of Hell we're taking full advantage of the Vita's unique features; you can use the rear touch pad to play a rhythm based mini-game and heal your troops.
The game also includes a crafting system and a leveling system to improve and equip your goblin soldiers to expand their skills and abilities. Want some rare items? Team up with some friends via ad-hoc multiplayer and take on tougher monsters.
You can expect to see Army Corps of Hell available for the PlayStation Vita in 2012.
We'll have more information in the coming months before launch, so keep an eye on the Square Enix Blog for any...

Marle: The requisite princess, but she's no ordinary princess. How many princesses do you know that wield a crossbow?
Lucca: Chrono's best friend since they were little kids. Oh, and she's a supergenius who invents things such as the teleporter that starts your journey through time.
Frog: A knight from the middle ages, Frog is a man who has been cursed and turned into a giant anthropomorphic...
