Video: Invizimals: The Alliance on PS Vita Is Fun for the Whole Family

Blessed beast

Despite a pretty big push around the world, Sony’s casual monster hunting franchise Invizimals has struggled to take off outside of continental Europe. Nevertheless, the platform holder's giving the property another shot here in the UK, and that’s culminated in the release of Invizimals: The Alliance and Invizimals: The Lost Kingdom for both the PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3 respectively.

While we’re busy beavering away on traditional reviews for both of these adventures, we also thought that it was important to get some feedback from the franchise’s primary audience: kids. As such, we turned to our friends over at Family Gamer TV, who have been especially busy with the handheld release. This video not only includes tons of footage from the portable title, but it also gives an overview of how the various games interact.

Apologies in advance for the Chelsea shirt.

I've heard that this is "Sony's answer to Pokémon". It looks like one of the first games I'll be picking up when I eventually get around to buying a lovely Vita

@benrawr Yeah, it has a great premise, but the execution isn't right. They would have been better off turning Digimon into their Pokémon counter, as the franchise still has a pretty loyal fanbase.

@BornOfEvil @benrawr I'm not so keen on the FMV. It doesn't have the same sense of style as Pokemon. Totally agree that it has an incredibly imaginitive premise, though - the idea that there are Invizimals all around us and you just need a special piece of equipment (PS Vita, PSP) to see them is really clever.
