63w ago - Sony Producer and Studio Head Sian Yue Tan has announced today alongside a video trailer thatRocketbirds for PS Vita launches on February 12th, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: Hello again! I'm happy to announce that Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken for PS Vita will be available very soon for download on PSN - February 12th, in fact!

The game is already available in Asia, where it was bundled with the PS Vita over Christmas, while it was also available exclusively to Asian PS Plus members. Since then, it became one of the top three most-downloaded PS Vita games on the PSN Top 10 PS3 and PS Vita Games in December list in Hong Kong, which is awesome!

In this game, you'll take control of Hardboiled Chicken, the original Cock of War (a chicken so tough, he survived being boiled as a fetus), to lead the rebellion against the draconian penguin oppressors to overthrow their hold on Albatropolis! It's an old-school cinematic action-adventure set in the Rocketbirds universe, a world filled with some despicable and often violent birds.
