We’ve known for a while that Killzone was coming to Vita but Sony has just run an official trailer for the game at their show in Cologne. As should be obvious, it’s based around mercenaries, rather than taking sides in the Helghan conflict.
Early footage looks quite good, although there was an awful lot of on-screen prompting for touchscreen controls. Certainly nice to see that universe on a Vita screen though, and we were promised more information in the coming months as the hype train really begins to ramp up for its release.
Also of interest was a hinted payment system, with some on screen indicators that showed credits flying off enemies as you dispatched them. I imagine there’s some really cool Near implementation and leaderboard action that could go along with that but it’s probably not wise to guess at too much!
