Konami has just announced that New Little King’s Story will be released on the PlayStation Vita next year. The game will be an RPG with elements similar to Little King’s Story, with players roaming the kingdom and recruiting subjects.
“Set in a beautifully-realised game world, New Little King’s Story follows the player as they assume the role of a King tasked with reclaiming his kingdom from an invader known only as ‘The Nightmare.’ King Corobo, a plucky 14-year-old royal, presides over a stricken land. The evil Nightmare is running havoc and the populace lives in fear as it preys on them. Thus, as Corobo, the user must unite their subjects in order to fight back and reclaim the kingdom.”
New Little King’s Story will utilise the PS Vita’s touchscreen by allowing players to “control and arrange recruits and send them into battle or to search areas with simple finger movements.” The game world will also react to player actions by showing changes to the landscape as King Corobo’s influence grows over The Nightmare.
Having played some of the original, which I found fun in a not too taxing way, I’m quite looking forward to this.
