We all know the PS Vita will no longer have its store taken offline this month, however what nobody thought to ask was: Will new video games proceed to be added? We’re listening to rumours that no extra shall seem after July 20.
If this proves to be true, it’ll be lucky for Russian Subway Canines. Originally launched in 2018 for PC, it managed a brief Kotaku mention when introduced a few years earlier than that, and proved an honest—if very unusual—recreation. It was a single-screen arcade recreation impressed by the true lives of stray canines dwelling on the Moscow Metro. It’s about being a type of canines, and simply making an attempt to remain alive. Now, one other three years later, it’s coming to consoles. Besides, not new ones. As an alternative it’s on Xbox One, PS4 and… PS Vita.
Developer Miguel Sternberg rushed to get the Vita port completed when he first heard the rumors the Sony shops have been being switched off in 2021, and although that’s not taking place, if July does mark the final probability to launch something new he’ll have simply squeaked in in time.
Fairly than being a stunt, it appears Vita was at all times a platform Sternberg needed to see the sport performed on. It’s his favourite handheld, and the port has been deliberate since 2015. “That is actually a ardour mission,” he tells us in an e-mail, “relatively than a sound enterprise determination.”
It clearly makes full sense that no extra new video games shall be coming to a platform that simply got here so near dropping its potential to purchase video games in any respect. It appears becoming, ought to this show to be the case, that one in every of its final shall be from a developer who cared a lot concerning the handheld.
