And so it starts. Sony has announced that it will be porting the PlayStation Vita version of Hot Shots Golf to the PS3. The re-release – which is currently only confirmed for Japan – will launch with the same name as its handheld counterpart. In this instance, that’s Minna no Golf 6.

The console version will support PlayStation Move, and will be playable alongside the Vita version courtesy of cross-play. All of the original's downloadable content will be included on the disc.

The PS3 release will also include two new modes, "Slot Mode" and "Minna no Short Course”. The former will award you with gameplay bonuses which can be won via slots, while the other will place you on courses made up entirely of short holes.

There’s no word on a Western release just yet, but the port is due out on 22nd November in Japan.
