Sony pulled a cheeky move during its GamesCom 2012 press conference earlier today, temporarily glossing over Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified before closing the show with an explosive debut trailer.

Developed by Nihilistic Software – the studio behind Resistance: Burning Skies – the shooter promises to bridge the gap between the original Call of Duty: Black Ops and its upcoming sequel. “One of Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified’s compelling features is the fact that you can take the established gameplay everyone knows and loves and bring it to the PS Vita,” explained producer Neven Dravinski.

The game will boast a handful of eight-player multiplayer modes, including Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed and Drop Zone. It’ll also take advantage of a number of system exclusive features such as touch-screen controls and Near compatibility.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is set to release later this year on PlayStation Vita. Check out the brand new trailer below for a glimpse of the spin-off in action.
