Russian Subway Dogs PS Vita PlayStation 1

While the PS Vita storefront will remain open for the foreseeable future – following a dramatic U-turn from the Japanese giant – Sony is sticking to its original plan of ceasing to accept submissions for the handheld’s PS Store from 20th July, meaning a final batch of new releases will deploy tomorrow. A couple of indie developers have reached out to us to confirm that their projects have made the deadline; here’s what you can look forward to.

  • Russian Subway Dogs: Inspired by the real-life stray dogs of the Moscow Metro – the name was a giveaway, eh? – this arcade experience from Spooky Squid Games will find you stealing food and juggling vodka (!) across a full-length campaign and a procedurally generated arcade mode.
  • Ultra Mission: A top-down shooter from Gumbo Machine, inspired by the likes of Robotron 2084. With a combo system and an infinite gameplay loop, the developer’s promising an arcade experience that – despite carrying a budget, $2.99 price point – will keep you playing for some time.

These are the two that we received press releases for, but there’s a good chance that several others will deploy tomorrow, and we’ll keep you up to date as more information emerges.
