Telltale’s The Walking Dead releasing on Vita

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.

    I was wondering why they hadn't done this yet. I mean; I know that porting stuff properly can take time, but it seemed like a wasted opportunity. Hopefully this means that season 2 will follow on the Vita as well.

    I didn't think I'd play this again, but for another way easy platinum trophy, I'd be willing to play through again to see what happens if you make Lee the most terrible person in Georgia.

    Doesn't games on both Ps3 and Vita share a list in the trophy section though?

    Depends on the game. Some do, and some don't. Sound Shapes did, but PlayStation All-Stars didn't. I guess they leave it up to the developer to decide.
