38w ago - Sony Producer Kumi Yuasa has shared some new details below today on Destiny of Spirits for PlayStation Vita proclaiming the world unites in battle.

To quote: In our last blog post, we provided an overview of Destiny of Spirits, a PS Vita game launching this year. Today, we're back to share more details about its social aspects.

Destiny of Spirits is a free-to-play, location-based, social strategy game. Players from around the world work cooperatively in turn-based, RPG style action to battle fierce Chaos spirits. The goal? Purify and save the world.

In Destiny of Spirits, friends will make your journey easier. Each day, The Destiny Engine - which is based on Western and Eastern astrology - will lead you to other players that the engine selects as compatible, based on a number of factors including birthday, name, and location.

You'll greet each day with new suggestions for allies across the world, and the more friends you have, the more benefits you can gain! The gameplay really opens up once you have friends. And working together with people across the world will affect how you strategically interact with Destiny of Spirits.

Spirits are unique to certain geographical locations around the globe. However, you can trade spirits...

Featured Fits are ready to go and don't require any skill training to equip, so Mercs can use them without burning through hard-earned Skill Points. Just slot them onto your character of choice, and hop into battle.

200°
43w ago - Devolver Digital's Nigel Lowrie announced today that Hotline Miami is hitting both PS3 and PS Vita Tuesday with a PS-exclusive mask!

To quote: Let's get to the news you've all been waiting for first - Hotline Miami will launch for $9.99 on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita on June 25th!

The teams at Dennaton Games, Abstraction Games, and Devolver Digital have worked incredibly hard to reproduce the fast-paced gameplay and super tight controls of the original game, and we couldn't be happier with how Hotline Miami plays on PS3 and PS Vita.

The PlayStation versions of Hotline Miami will also have an exclusive new mask designed by Abstraction and Dennaton Games. After months of top secret bovine research, we finally get to unveil our new friend: Russell the raging bull.

Russell is hidden early in the game, and when equipped will turn the entire game black and white save the neon text and red blood left behind as you rampage through each floor of every level. It's a really neat effect, and even changes up the video filter a bit to give the whole game a classic film look.

There are also a bunch of new upgrades, like leaderboards for each level of the game, Trophies, and even touch support for lock-on targeting in the PS Vita version. Plus, Hotline Miami is a Cross-Buy...

Collaborate with Friends in Battle

In Destiny of Spirits, evil Spirits lay claim to areas around the globe, and it'll take the collaboration of friends around the world to remove these threats, known as Chaos Spirits.

Battle by customizing your own team with powerful elemental Spirits, trade Spirits with friends around the world to diversify your squad, or let your friends borrow from your collection - the game is much more dynamic as you connect with more friends.
