When I was younger I loved the Worms franchise. Who could withstand opposing worm armies going to war using such weapons as the holy hand grenades and the concrete donkey? Hours were spent facing my friends on this absurd battleground.
Now Team17 has announced that the worms will be coming to the PS Vita later this year in Worms Revolution Extreme. The game itself will contain 45 single player missions and 25 puzzles. Both local and online multiplayer will also be available allowing up to 4 participants, with modes including Classic, Deathmatch and Forts.
The Vita version will also make use of the touch panels, with the front screen allowing the change of camera angles and weapaon selection, while the back panel will allow for weapon aiming.
There will also be cross platform features with the PS3, allowing saves to be transferred between the two systems so you can continue the game on the big screen or the Vita. The most interesting cross platform feature is something called Treasure Mode. During matches you’ll earn keys and chests but you can only join up with a friend who has the matching chest or key to unlock the items inside. By the wording in the blog post it looks like this can be done 10 times between two friends.
