Well, the day has finally come. We've talked about the many ways to play Sumioni: Demon Arts and gone into great detail on how the game perfectly complements the PS Vita's many unique features, but now it's time to see for yourself just how addictive it truly is.
Sumioni: Demon Arts is an exclusive PS Vita action platformer from Acquire and XSEED Games that taps into PS Vita's powerful touchscreen. Using your finger, you'll be able to draw bridges to cross dangerous obstacles, summon thunderclouds or sacred lions to attack enemies, and much, much more.
Sumioni will be available to download for $19.99 later today on PlayStation Store. Or, if you're feeling lucky, listen to the latest PlayStation Blogcast now and submit a user tip or user question, then tune in later this week to see if you won a free download code for the game.
