The Walking Dead Is Lurching onto PlayStation Vita This Year

Posted by Sammy Barker

Telltale's award winning series spreading its bile

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.

I always wondered why the game didn't come to vita in the first place. Especially considering it was also on IOS. I think it will be a good fit on vita with the touch controls and whatnot. I definitely recommend it to anyone who hasn't played it yet.

This is pretty cool. I'd probably prefer it on my Vita, and I only have the 2 episodes that were free with PS+. So I'm hoping they charge 20 bucks or so for the whole game on Vita and I'll get it there.

@artemisthemp The ps3 version had a retail release so I don't see why the vita version can't have one. My vita memory card also is running low on space at the moment. Maybe Sony will have a Cross-Buy deal with this game as well.
