1w ago - Sony Marketing Manager Mark Valledor is here with a fresh video trailer today spotlighting Destiny of Spirits, which brings a social strategy to PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Amidst all the E3 announcements happening this week, we have a special one of our own - introducing Destiny of Spirits, a new free-to-play social experience that integrates strategic fantasy battles with your everyday PS Vita activity.
Our teams in Japan, in conjunction with Q Entertainment, have been working hard to bring a gaming experience that you can play every day, but more importantly, provide a community where you'll be able to contribute, even when you're not playing.
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.

Nico Nico will be the only service that enables you to watch a beta livestream of the PlayStation press conference directly on your PS Vita. Personally, I can't think of a better way to watch all of the latest and greatest from PlayStation at E3 on the go than on your 5" OLED screen.
