It looks like the first season of Telltale Games’ award winning The Walking Dead series is shuffling onto the PlayStation Vita. Sony’s director of product planning Don Mesa dropped the tidbit in an interview with IGN, confirming that the critically acclaimed episodic series will haunt the handheld before the end of the year.

“Having [a studio] like Telltale, a very successful indie developer, coming in to support us sends a strong message,” he said. "Wherever you're sitting, if you're in your living room and playing on your Vita or sitting at a cafe or at the bus stop and playing this, you get that shock or fright.”

It’s unclear whether the series will launch episodically like on the PlayStation 3, or in one lump sum. Seeing as development on the season is already completed, we’re going to assume that everything will be available from the off. Sadly, additional details are being kept under wraps for the time being, but we’re sure that we’ll learn more soon – perhaps even during this weekend’s PAX East.
