Telltales’s episodic horror-adventure, and our Best Downloadable Game from last year, The Walking Dead: The Game, has been confirmed for the PlayStation Vita and will release some time this year. This tasty tidbit comes from a recent IGN interview with PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa.
While the interview consisted of everything PlayStation, a good chunk was dedicated solely about Mesa’s excitement toward having Telltale’s The Walking Dead: The Game on PlayStation Vita. “Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message.” Don Mesa’s also confident that the PlayStation Vita will offer unique experience along with the emotional story gamers (or survivors) grew to love through each episode. “Again, a good example is with The Walking Dead. We think that the emotion and the immersive experiences you’re going to get there, wherever you’re sitting, if you’re in your living room and playing on your Vita or sitting at a café or at the bus stop and playing this, you get that shock or fright. I think that’s going to be important. That’s what we want to deliver as you’re playing.”
For me, stories told through handhelds tend to be a more personal and engaging experience. Keep checking back to oprainfall for any updates concerning the PlayStation Vita iteration of The Walking Dead: The Game.
