A good old fashioned kerfuffle

What happens When Vikings Attack? You’ll be able to find out later this year when the Clever Beans developed fighting game launches on PSN and Vita.

In the game, a “battalion of Viking invaders, 1200 years late to the party, are causing havoc in your town”. You need to assemble a posse of local citizens in order to stop them in their tracks, using make-shift projectiles such as phone booths and cars.

The downloadable title features full adventure and versus gameplay modes, the latter of which looks heavily inspired by Dreamcast classic Power Stone. Here your headcount represents your life-bar, as you desperately hunt for new civilians to join your cause and weapons to toss at your foes.

The game features full cross-platform support, allowing you to play multiplayer across any combination of PS3 and Vita devices. You’ll also be able to share your save progress between platforms and, better yet, you’ll only need to buy one version of the game to get access to both.

More details are expected to be announced at E3. In the meantime, check out the trailer below for a quick glimpse at the game in action.
