To quote: The Ninja Gaiden series, renowned for its surgically precise yet frenetic gameplay, has had a bit of a rebirth on PS Vita. With [Register or Login to view links] helping to launch the system, and with the impending release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus, Ryu Hayabusa has never been more mobile.

Read on to learn more about the new Ninja Race and Tag Mission modes, PS Vita development details and more.

PlayStation.Blog: Ninja Gaiden is known for its unforgiving difficulty and hyper-precise controls. How does that necessity translate to the smaller form factor and mobile focus of PS Vita?

Beyond: Two Souls - David Cage Talks Quantic's Supernatural Epic

50°
92w ago - Sony Contributing Editor Julien Bourey has shared details today from David Cage, who talks about Quantic's supernatural epic Beyond: Two Souls below!

To quote: There are few forthcoming PlayStation 3 titles that are quite so keenly anticipated as Beyond: Two Souls, the latest project from Quantic Dream - the idiosyncratic French developer behind acclaimed 2010 adventure Heavy Rain.

Following the story of young Jodie Holmes (played by Hollywood starlet Ellen Page) and her mysterious supernatural companion, Aiden, it lit up E3 earlier this year with its stunning reveal trailer.

We've not heard too much since, so we caught up with Quantic's founder, David Cage, at Paris Games Week for a quick progress update.

We've not heard too much about Beyond since its E3 reveal back in June. Is development going well?

David Cage: Development is going very well. Indeed, it's nice to go to all these shows but we also have to make the game! We're advancing - we're now a few weeks off the alpha version. It's always a very critical moment in the development of a game since it's the first time all the game data is assembled in a complete version.

This first version is often not very playable, but it's the first time you can see the "complete"...
 

Behind the Classics: Amy Hennig Talks Soul Reaver Secrets

200°
97w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman has once again gone behind the classics and shared an interview with Amy Hennig today who talks Soul Reaver secrets below!

To quote: Ah, Soul Reaver. I remember it well! This gruesome little gem made quite the splash when it landed on PSone in 1999.

As the wounded, ostracized vampire Raziel, your goal was to avenge yourself against the corrupt vampire lord Kain and restore balance to the decaying world of Nosgoth.

I particularly remember the game's inspired approach to combat; your vampiric foes couldn't be killed by ordinary means, so after weakening them with hand-to-hand combat you had to hurl their broken bodies onto a sharp stake or into a patch of sunlight to finish them off.

The level design was also a knockout, as Raziel was able to phase-shift into a spectral realm in order to bypass obstacles or solve puzzles.

But above all else, Soul Reaver is remembered for its story and characters. And we have the game's director Amy Hennig to thank for that! As you're probably well aware, Hennig later joined celebrated PlayStation developer Naughty Dog, serving as creative director and writer for Jak and Daxter and all three UNCHARTED titles.

Hennig graciously took the time to share her memories of Soul...

To quote: Beyond: Two Souls, [Register or Login to view links]'s rabidly anticipated follow-up to Heavy Rain, ceded the limelight at Sony's gamescom press conference last week to various other freshly-announced titles, as the French studio got on with the hard graft of development.

Check out our interview below for more on Beyond's refined approach to storytelling, Cage's verdict on working with top Hollywood talent for the first time and how Quantic's ground-breaking graphics tech has evolved since Heavy Rain.

104w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton has shared some video interview footage today spotlighting Tearaway by Media Molecule below.

To quote: One of the big highlights of [Register or Login to view links] last week was [Register or Login to view links]'s return to the spotlight with Vita adventure Tearaway - the UK studio's first title since LittleBigPlanet 2.

Predictably, it's a riot of colour, creativity and wild invention, telling the story of iota - a plucky young hero on a mission to deliver a unique message to you, the player.

You'll help him on his way by interacting with his environment via the Vita's touch screen and rear touch panel. It looks like an absolute delight to play, leveraging all the Vita's features to offer up a unique, exciting gameplay experience.

The morning after they revealed the game on stage during the Sony press conference, Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans and "design lead/chief doodler" Rex Crowle kindly sat down with me for a quick chat about the ideas driving the game, as well as a few words on the [Register or Login to view links] series.
