Telltale's The Walking Dead is coming to PlayStation Vita
Telltale Games' The Walking Dead, you know, the one that didn't butcher a franchise millions of people enjoy (see: Survival Instinct), is coming to the PlayStation Vita this year. Confirmed by IGN, the release window for The Walking Dead Season One on Vita has yet to be determined.
PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa didn't offer specific ways the Vita's functionality will be utilized, but did offer the following comments on the overall Vita experience:
"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."
While this is certainly exciting news for Vita owners who are starved for games, the rest of us have our sights set on Season Two, which is also expected to release in 2013. To hold us over, Telltale has promised more content -- hopefully bridging the gap between the events in Season One and Season Two (if there's one to be bridged) -- is on the way.
