Vita Getting Telltale’s The Walking Dead This Year
Telltale will be allowing The Walking Dead fans to take its episodic adventure on the go later this year when the game is ported to the PlayStation Vita.
Speaking with IGN, PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa discussed the news, and what it meant for the Vita platform.
“We think that the emotion and the immersive experiences you’re going to get there,” Mesa said. “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.”
As for the struggling Vita, Mesa sees Telltale’s support as a big step. “Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message,” Mesa added.
There’s no date or info on how The Walking Dead will be released (in one shot, or episodically), on the Vita, but this is good news for people who still haven’t given the game a shot, or travelers looking for a good game to keep them occupied on commutes.
