Could The Last Guy Be Making a Comeback on Vita?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Acquire title to be revealed next week

Criminally underrated PlayStation Network arcade puzzler The Last Guy could be plotting a path onto the PlayStation Vita, if a new teaser website set up by Japanese developer Acquire is to be believed. The page – which includes Google Map-esque backgrounds similar to those employed by the aforementioned PSN title – teases a full reveal on 21st March.

There’s very little information on the site, apart from a few numbers and the words, “Are you alive?" However, the potential for a sequel to The Last Guy on Sony’s handheld is undeniably huge – imagine if the game was able to use GPS data to create custom levels based on where you are in the world. That would be absolutely amazing, wouldn't it?

Just in case you’re not familiar with the forgotten PSN exclusive, we’ve included a trailer for the PS3 version in the space below. If you haven’t played it yet, you really should go and rectify that – the digital download is fairly cheap.

If this really is a new The Last Guy game with GPS support, I think I will actually scream with happiness.

Never heard of the game, but the way the notifications look and the gameplay remind me of Tokyo Jungle.
It's the same devoloper, right?
And can someone please explain to me what the game is about? >.>

@neumaus It's a bit like Pac-Man. You have to rescue people from building (which are represented via Google Maps data) and safely transport them to Escape Zones, without getting attacked by monsters.

Huh... guess it's the kind of game you need to play to appreciate.

I ain't too concerned about the Last Guy or the Second Last Guy. What I am concerned about is NO Vita game announcements in the 7 months since the incredibly epic Tearaway was announced at Gamescom. Unless I'm mistaken, all we've heard about over that time is some downloadable titles an a off-road racing game. Where are the big boys?? The AAAs? We know Kojima and Ubisoft are workin on games and Irrational was supposed to be workin on a game, but when are we gonna hear somethin? The disgusting thing is that developers WANT to make Vita games. MAJOR players like Epic, Rockstar, and Sega all have Vita projects in mind. But at the end of the day it comes down to sales in the West. I've seen Vita ads littered all over ESPN, but like I've said from day 1, no one except the hardcores is gonna pay $250+ for a handheld device whose CORE purpose is gaming. Sony needs to have a lot up their sleeves for E3 an I'm a lil skeptical given Vita's performance at Sony's conference the last couple years...though for some strange reason I got a feelin they'll pull through this one time

From where does the concept of this game originate? There's a job in WTF for PSP with the same one. It's just slower and simpler, but you still recruit a bunch of folks from buildings in town.
