Proud as punch

Nintendo won’t be the only platform holder rejoicing in second screen technology this Christmas. Indie developer DrinkBox Studios has confirmed that it will be taking full advantage of PlayStation 3 and Vita connectivity for its upcoming Metroidvania adventure, Guacamelee!.

"We're integrating the Vita as a PS3 controller for Guacamelee!, utilizing the Vita screen for a mini-map, and hopefully more," Chris McQuinn told Joystiq. "Does this sound like a next-gen console you've heard of perhaps? As far as we know, we're the first game doing this."

Actually, LittleBigPlanet 2 is the first game doing it – but we’re excited to see the technology spread to more titles. The functionality will be on display at PAX Prime in Seattle later this month. If you’re attending, you’ll be able to find the game inside the Indie Megabooth.
