Sony has revealed that season one of Telltale’s The Walking Dead will be released on Vita later this year.
The platform holder didn’t say whether the game will be released episodically or as a single purchase, or how Telltale plans to utilise Vita’s unique hardware features.
Confirming only a 2013 launch window, Don Mesa, PlayStation’s director of product planning and platform software innovation, told IGN: “Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message.
“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."
The second season of The Walking Dead is slated to arrive this fall, although series story consultant Gary Whitta recently suggested inter-season content will be revealed soon, noting: “You won't have to wait for Season 2 to play more Walking Dead." Here’s what we want to see in The Walking Dead Season 2.
