Cave, the developers of some of the world’s finest shoot-em-ups, have cancelled their two Vita games currently in production, according to a note in the latest Famitsu magazine.
Two titles were being developed – a shooter and a social game (said to be a version of Shirotsuku), which were being talked about last Tokyo Game Show. Little details were known about the games, although the social game was meant to use the Vita’s key features:
- Check in with the game to get souvenirs and buildings exclusive to specific geographic areas.
- Earn in-game coins based off how far you’ve traveled (in the real world, like on your commute). The cash can be used to have your townsfolk build a building for you for instance.
- Connect to social networks and show off your castle town and trade souvenirs.
Cave are expected to continue their focus on iPhone and iPad titles.
